APRIL 1: Easter Egg Hunt in Chewelah
For more than fifty years, the Chewelah Kiwanis Club and the Boy Scouts of Chewelah have provided an egg hunt on Easter.
Last year, rain and snow melt made Chewelah Creek overflow its banks making the city park and Little League field a muddy, soggy mess. The Boy Scouts and Kiwanis found a new place for the Easter Egg Hunt at the Barbour Complex east of Jenkins Junior/Senior High School. The Complex is safer and at the same time provides areas well defined for the various age groups.
There will be a ball field for youth five years and younger, a ball field for ages six through ten and a ball field for 11 years and older. There will be an area for young children who cannot find eggs on their own and need adult help.
This year’s Easter Egg Hunt is April 1 at 1 p.m. at the Barbour Complex east of Jenkins Junior/Senior High School. It only takes about five minutes to get all the eggs, so make sure you’re there early!

The next Northeast Washington Genealogical Society meeting will be April 11th, 2018 at 1 p.m. in the lower level meeting room of the LDS Church on Juniper St in Colville. Entry is located at the back of the building. The building is located one block east of the South Main Restaurant on Hwy 395. NeWGS is excited to introduce a new speaker for the April meeting. Barry McCombs, an accomplished genealogist, will share his expertise in “Tackling Those Brick Walls.” The term “brick wall” is widely used in genealogy circles to describe those difficult research projects that come to a frustrating dead-end time after time. Most genealogists, beginners and seasoned alike, have one or more brick walls that plague them. If you are one who has spent long hours searching for an ancestor who simply refuses to be found – don’t give up! Barry just might shed light on a direction or solution you have not yet considered. All visitors are welcome. You do not need to be a member to attend the Northeast Washington Genealogical Society’s meetings.

APRIL 13: Melody Riders Multipurpose Clubhouse Fundraiser
Melody Riders Saddle Club of Chewelah is raising funds to build a new multipurpose community clubhouse facility at 2436 Logan Road, just south of Chewelah. Melody Riders was incorporated May 7, 1958 as a family-oriented horse riding club to bring everyone in Chewelah and Colville together to eat, dance play cards and especially, play games together both on horseback and afoot. For 60 years they have held Gymkhanas, Barrel Races, Horse Shows, Trail Rides and jumping competitions. The club members encompass many of the long time residents of other neighboring communities as well. Once a very active facility. The Riders once-bustling clubhouse is about to fall down but the historical items have been rescued from the building.
The plan is to raise funds to build a multipurpose community clubhouse and bring events to this facility that will help to energize family-centered gatherings. This will be accomplished first through donations from our local communities, then through volunteerism.
The fundraiser is April 13 at the Chewelah Golf and Country Club/Clubhouse. It is a Lasagna Dinner and Dance to the great sounds of Jory Morgan and his Wildhorse Band. There will be raffles, 50/50 raffles and a door prize. Tickets are $25 per person and are available through Valley Drug or by calling Oly Burnett 936-1861 or Nancy at 850-607-1242.

On April 14 at 4 p.m., come help the junior and senior classes at Columbia River Christian Academy in Kettle Falls raise money for their mission trip to help rebuild Puerto Rico after the devastating Hurricanes last summer. Enter your chili, donate for the silent auction or make a cash donation for the mission trip. There will be a $100 cash prize and a trophy for the chili cook-off winner. At the door there is a suggested $5 donation and $20 group rates.

In between, as always, we will have a host of vendors who are welcome to sell whatever they like whether it be arts and crafts or just a popular place to conduct your summer garage sale. If you just want to have an informational booth or even fundraise for a team or cause, you are welcome to register as well.
