Event Theme: Hootenanny
Event Captain: Ruth Gregersen
Hootenanny Leader: Leslie Hollearn
Event Word Of The Day: Yee-Haw
Welcome to the Cle Elum event. If you have been there before, you know that it can be hot. There is no air conditioning in the clubhouse so please bring FANS if you have them. The theme of Hootenanny came from a weekly event at SMR where a group of women sang and played instruments. The songs are very familiar and fun to sing. Please bring instruments if you have them. Spoons, washboard, shakers are all welcome as well as more traditional instruments like guitar, ukulele, flutes… We will be having a cowgirl hat contest so please bring your cowgirl hats. Chaps, vests, spurs, and other cowgirl items are welcome as well. Many of us who were at Cle Elum last year enjoyed the Line Dancing 101 lessons by Lynda Byrd so we decided to do Line Dancing 102 this year. I am sure that there will be a 101 refresher for those of us that have not practiced over the year.

Things to do nearby:
Cle Elum Telephone Museum:
This museum was established in 1966 when Pacific Northwest Bell Telephone Company deeded its former office building to the Cle Elum Historical Society. At that time Cle Elum became the last in the telephone company's service area to be changed over from manual phone service to automatic dialing.
Carpenter House Museum
A step over the threshold of the Carpenter House is a step into the past. This marvelous 1914 mansion, with its spacious rooms, tiny alcoves and third-floor ballroom, holds the story of Cle Elum's first successful banker and his family. High Country Artists shares this historic house, and its art displays provide visitors an added experience.
Mac-A-Bees Gifts of the Southwest
Almost twenty years ago, Mac-A-Bees brought Southwest style merchandise to the Pacific Northwest. From modest beginnings, the store has grown to more than 4,000 square feet of total floor space, most of which is filled with delights gathered on trips to the Southwest. In recent years, Mac-A-Bees has grown their inventory to include western, lodge and wildlife themed decor. From the outside, it’s very hard to envision ample space to display the store’s extensive inventory, but walking in the door you’re certain to be taken back. The store is unlike any other, and there’s definitely a little something for everyone. So saddle up, grab the reins, and journey to the Southwest; Mac-A-Bees Gifts of the Southwest that is. You’ll be glad you made the trip and the entire crew will be pleased to have gained yet another friend.
