No jeans or pedal pushers allowed - High School Memories  Visiting my alma mater, Lewis and Clark High School, Spokane, Washington,  and attending all the events scheduled for my 50th High School Reunion was undoubtedly the best event of the year.  I may change my mind after the Elton John concert in a couple of  weeks but for now, WOW!!!!!   Graduates congregated at the golf course, at grade school parties and the memorial.  We partied hardy at the Davenport Hotel enjoying dinner, drinks and dancing.  Three hundred thirty-three people attended. Bet you can't beat that number at your 50th! Those who still had energy gathered at beautiful Manito Park Sunday morning for the reunion's final event - a picnic in the park. The weather was fabulous.  It was exactly what the Chamber of Commerce...

Cindy Carrigan is Team Leader for Five Star Spokane Realty Group and Doc Nicolson is Five Star’s Managing Broker.

  Wordless Wednesday - my first submission! Todd Benson, a local artist, is hard at work just one block away from my office.  When the project is complete a second large panel and a smaller one will be in living color.  The motorcyclist was an unexpected bonus.

Their existence has spread rapidly and they even have a facebook page you can't help but "like"!   In Spokane Little Free Libraries are popping up everywhere. You can't miss these little gems packed with books and colorfully decorated so you can easily find them curbside on city streets.
