METHOW VALLEY NEWS: MAZAMA by BOB SPIWAK

Saturday’s Pancake Breakfast was a booming success and all manner of accolades are due for Gay Northrup. She resurrected what appeared to be a dead event mere months ago and not only made it happen, but also had plenty of help, which has been somewhat of a rarity. There are many others who deserve plaudits, and all of you know who you are, as do those who attended.

Well, maybe not the hordes that showed up for the fun run. I have not gotten a count of participants, but cars were parked up and down Goat Creek Road on both sides, as well as at the Community Club parking area and the big parking lot by the corral where the race started.

While others have been involved, I believe June Fitzpatrick was the impetus for an event that was tied to the breakfast. It had several names, including “Mazama Days” and “Good Old Days.” I was skeptical, I must admit, and good old days for me and many others were when maybe 50 people came to breakfast.

Anyhow, this turned into a sort of fair with booths and raffles, library book sale, political enclaves for the Mazama Advisory Committee and the Move The Hut movement and a variety of other stuff, including entertainment for kids of all ages. The point is, it drew the people, both involved in and separate from the race, and all seemed to be having a grand time.
