The Second Annual Summer Cookout, is a benefit for the Deschutes County Historical Society and Museum. This event is held on the lawn of the museum Sunday, August 13th. A picnic dinner will be served by Baldy’s Barbeque: pulled pork and pulled chicken with Baldy’s famous barbeque sauce, rolls, corn on the cob, summer salad, coleslaw or potato salad, and ice cold watermelon. Iced tea and bottled water are included in the price of the ticket – $35. Wine and Boneyard Beer’s RPM IPA will be available.
Time will be 3:00 – 6:00 PM in order to take advantage of the afternoon shade. Look for another silent
auction under the canopy – subjects will be announced in the July issue of the Homesteader.
Back by popular demand is last year’s popular local attraction, Down Range, who will be returning to
entertain and amuse picnickers. Linger over liquid refreshments as Loren Irving and Jay Bowerman strum,
hum, and sing favorites from a repertoire of bluegrass and folk tunes.
Rumors abound about the appearance of the first Shevlin-Hixon Lumber Mill fire engine that is currently being
restored. Step back in time and learn some facts of this important addition to Bend’s mill and forestry history.
