Rabekah Flea Market in Old Town

In a never ending battle to save their building from the wrecking ball of progress, the Sherwood Rabekah Lodge holds a fund raiser. Rabekah Hall was a movie house in the days of silent film. Many of the old fixtures remain, including rows of folding seats (but not for sale).

Japanese Youth Visit Sherwood

Thanks to Lilly Morgan's choreography, the language barrier between The City of Sherwood and the City of Edogawa, Japan proved to be no more daunting than London Bridge, being played here on the lawn at the Heritage Center.

Emigrant Springs Encounter

We met these old boys while camping on the Oregon Trail at Emigrant Springs, near Pendelton. They were just in from Idaho with a couple of oxen just like the ones that pulled the wagons west in the olden days. How smart these oxen were is demonstrated by the photo at left. The "deer" is made of plaster, yet the ox romanced it as though it were a real critter. Of course there was an old time Fiddlers convention going on at the same time. With all the pickin' and grinnin' and sparkin' going on, Emigrant Springs was a great place to rest your feet before continuing across the Blue Mountains.

Scam Number Three: Leave Us ALONE!

Dear Jaycee Smock

I am Barrister Barrister Victor Mandus(Esq),currently representing a big oil servicing company in my country Lome-Togo in West Africa.

My late client, Peter Smock, who expatriate in my country,with his wife and their one child lost their lives in World trade center bombing on the 11th of sep. 2001. Before his death, my deceased client deposited two boxes containing $18,000,000.00 United Sates Dollars with a Security Company in Lome-Togo.

Here He accumulated this money from an onshore engineering award. I decided to search for any foreigner that has the same surname with my late client in repatriating the consignment since I found it unsuccessful to find a true relative to him. I want you to quickly file in for claim before the security company will declare the consignment unserviceable.

The said money was packed in cash in two boxes, the boxes was not opened, and he declared it as containing just family valuables of classified documents and he paid a high price for the special diplomatic service of deposit here (a category of deposit in which a customers consignment is never opened for inspection).

As you have the same surname with the decease, this is why I am writing to you so that I will assist you claim this consignment. I will prepare every documentation that will assist your claim. The consignment will be released to you within 7 working days after you have filed in for claims. I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as possible,Please you also include your telephone and fax number for easy communication.

Robin Hood Festival - July 15,16,17, 2005

Julian the Sorcerer!
Hollywood's 1938 action movie, "The Adventures of Robin Hood" was re-released in 1948. It starred Olivia deHavilland and Errol Flynn. The film wowwed America and is still considered one of the greatest action films of all time, owing to the great swordsmanship. In Sherwood Oregon USA, a group of military veterans just home from the war saw a role for themselves in the excitement. They donned Robin Hood uniforms and hurried off to amuse the crowds that were lining up to see the movie. Everyone had a good time and The Robin Hood Festival Association was formed in 1952. The rest is history.
