Blue Lake's 54th annual Annie & Mary Day celebration was a rousing success (Calendar, July 7). The sun was out all day, the food was tasty, the car show was the largest ever and vendors offered all kinds of crafts.
This event would not have happened if it was not for the hard work put in by Mariel Morison, Rick Levin, Blue Lake's city workers, Adelene and Ted Jones, Jo Patterson, Kathy Nelson and many others. Special thanks to the Friends of the Annie & Mary Trail, Murphy's Markets, the Logger Bar, the Blue Lake Museum, Mad River Brewery, Jewell Distillery, Cal Plumbing and Fire Suppression, Redwood Capital Bank, Coast Central Credit Union, Dell'Arte, Elaine Benjamin, Marlene Smith, Paradise Cay, Green Diamond, Vaughn Hutchins, Frank Onstine, Just My Type, the Booklegger, Erv Clark, Susan Lewis, Karen Miller, Cheerful Designs, BLT Designs, Jonsteen Company and Englund Marine for their generous donations to our amazing raffle.
There was stellar music by the Spindrifters, The Lost Dogs, Papa Haole and the Fleas and Barn Fire. Our deepest gratitude to Lost Coast Communications, North Coast Journal and the Mad River Union for getting the word out on our fun event. See you next year!
