Landing Days turned out great.  The Museum's "Tour of Old Town" could not have gone any better.  We had over 250 people take the tour!  Big thanks go out to Larry, Keith & Christy, Harold & Judy, Cheryl, Marge (for all her work and Larry says for putting up with him), The Corp of Engineers & CTUIR for allowing the tour, and the Umatilla School District for furnishing the buses and drivers.  It was a wonderful day!

We also made a lot of "arrests" on Saturday after the parade!  We had deputies drag the wrongdoers into court and our real life city judge passed sentences on them.  We then locked them up in the old city jail and took their picture.  It was loads of fun.  There are still a few whose pictures were not claimed.  They are hanging in the museum for all to see.

Our very own Marge was the Grand Marshall of the parade this year!  Congratulations to her!

Visitors in the last month have come from all over the place!  Petaluma and Martinez, California; Orting, Pasco, Cathlamet, Mukilteo, Kingston, Plymouth, Walla Walla and Spokane, Washington; Parma, Idaho; Hillsboro, Portland, Coos Bay, Boardman, Sutherlin, Myrtle Point, Baker, The Dalles, Hermiston and Umatilla, Oregon; Texas; Tennessee; Ohio and Mississippi and The Netherlands and Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada!  Where will they come from next?
