Memorial Day at Gibbs Cemetary

Two Children Decorate a Grave Stone while Uniformed People watch.
The Schmeltzer family decorates the grave of their ancestor, Conrad K. Schmeltzer. Conrad was a cook in the Union Army during the Civil War. Yes, believe it or not, we have a few-- but very few-- Civil War veterans entombed in the Sherwood area. Above photo was taken at Gibbs Cemetary atop Chehalem Mountain during a cermony conducted by the American Legion.

'The Folks' at Quailhurst Vinyard

Two Adults and a Child Reading and Playing Mmusic inside a Large Tent.
Lilly Morgan and Clyde List entertain a little girl at Quailhurst Vinyard Sunday afternoon. She was definitely more curious about the horses outside than the music inside. The two day wine tasting party left everyone feeling much cozier and warmer than Old Man Weather would have liked.

Another June Reynolds Idea on Wings

High School Junior helps interview an Historically Significant Person While June holds the Camera.Today, our History Workshop welcomed a lot of people, including a Sherwood High Student [at right] who never believed Sherwood history could be this interesting. She and fellow scholars were kept busy all day today interviewing historically significant people and cataloging their artifacts. Don't pass up a chance to record your memories. The next History Workshop is, um, I forgot. What did you say June?

Fresh New Faces for Our Oldest Festival!

Maid Marian and her Court  Smiling for the Cameras at the Sherwood Public Library.
Robin Hood and Crew at Marian's Beck and Call. The Sherwood Robin Hood Festival selected a new cast tonight. They'll be in the July Fourth Celebration in Hillsboro for real. Our job there will be to explain that even heroes have heroes. George Washington for example. Who did George Washington yearn to be like when he was a lad? Robin Hood of course. (It's true!)
Two maidens smile for the camera.
Robin , Sheriff and King Richard.
Wait till you see the spectacular photographs that Diana Sell took!
