Two exchange students need a Quilcene home for this school year.

A Brinnon home may also work.

Two 16 year old girls…one from Germany and one from Italy are already

The host family would be responsible for daily expenses but the girls have

spending money for personal needs and recreation.

A great cultural experience for everyone.

If you want more information or know someone who might be interested

please call Betty Boon at 360.683.0889 or email her at boon.aspect.

Preview Windows 10 at Brinnon Community Center!

Were you wondering what Windows 10 looks like and how it differs from Windows 7 or XP?

Just drop by the Brinnon Community Center and try it out on the new Dell computer with Windows 10 installed.

It is not a touch screen but operates just fine with a mouse.

If after using the computer, you have any ideas on how we might improve the configuration, please send me an email.

And by the way, all three of the public computer have high speed internet provide by NoaNet which is about 10 times faster than CenturyLink DSL.

A big thanks to Emerald Towns Alliance, sponsors of ShrimpFest for providing the funds to upgrade one of the public computers to Windows 10 as well as all funding for the other two computers and printers.

Coming next Sat. Aug. 8th – The Tony Furtado Duo at Coyle!

> Tony Furtado and Stephanie Schneiderman
> Tony Furtado is a multi-instrumentalist on guitar, banjo, & slide guitar, and mixes Americana, folk, indie-rock, blues, and jazz styles.
> "As a banjo virtuoso, Furtado is well-known for his envelope-pushing, progressive bluegrass stylings. His picking is rapid-fire quick, sharp and clear, and puts him in the school of Béla Fleck and David Grisman." ~ Katie Klingsporn, Telluride Daily Planet

ECCHO – volunteers needed

There are some folks right here in Quilcene that need assistance. Please contact ECHHO (Ecumenical Christian Helping Hands Organization) if you would like more information and have some time to help a neighbor.
> Volunteers Needed!
> Volunteer Services include:
> Travel to Medical Appointments – We give rides to medical appointments and necessary errands. At least two business days notice is needed for local trips; and more advance notice is needed for out-of-county appointments. Each person must be able to get in and out of vehicles with minimal assistance, or be accompanied by a caregiver who can assist.
> Home and Domestic Assistance – We assist with light housekeeping: vacuuming, laundry or meal preparation on a short term basis (e.g. a person recuperating from surgery) or on an occasional basis (one or two times a month). We are available to fix a leaky faucet or loose step, or to assist with other straight-forward repairs. The care receiver must provide materials for any minor repairs. We do not do major repairs.
> Shopping and Errands – We provide this service for folks who cannot find this support from other resources.
> Friendly Visits – We provide these for persons who are home-bound; and occasionally we will take a person on an outing.
> Loans of Medical Equipment – We lend wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, bath seats, commodes, hospital beds and other items free of charge to anyone who needs them.
> By their actions, ECHHO volunteers demonstrate their desire for the type of world they want this to be. A world in which the lives of the less fortunate are valued no less than the lives of the fortunate. A world in which no one is denied care based upon income or social status. A world in which living with dignity is not a privilege, right, or benefit enjoyed only by those with more advantages than most. If you share this vision and want to help make it a reality, please contact ECHHO to find out how you can help those in need. If you are already a volunteer and know of someone who might be interested in helping, please tell them about ECHHO!
> We are eager to hear from interested folks and welcome inquiries Monday through Friday, 9am to 4pm. We can be reached at (360) 379-3246.
> Together, we are making a difference!
