Lostine prepares for Founderís Day

 Celebration Saturday to feature numerous events, including cider-pressing, mural dedication and a kiddie carnival 

Saturday is Founder’s Day in Lostine — a celebration of wine, cider, food and song for the whole family.

Cider pressing will be going on at June’s Local Market Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and Friday is the last Farmers Market of the season.

This is the third year Lostine has celebrated the fall harvest and June Colony said, “We want to really focus on our history as we go forward with this event.”

Friday is also the first Soup Nook of the season, which was moved from M. Crow and Co. to the Southfork Grange Hall. Soup will be sold every Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Local children have been working on a 24-foot mural on the side of the Southfork Grange since last December, said Vicky Crane. 

The project came out of an art class held at the Lostine Community Center with help from muralist Sirrka Fullerton and popular local artist Gene Hayes.

Crane said local grants and donations along with countless volunteer hours made the project a success.

At 2 p.m. Saturday, the mural will be dedicated in the pocket park next to the Grange by the children artists, Crane said. She said the theme of the mural represents the town in the 1940s with a painted backdrop and a Founder’s Day Parade scene.

“A lot of the older people in the community brought pictures to use for the scene,” Crane said.

A map of the Lostine Canyon is also featured on the side of the Grange along with the mural.

At 4 p.m. Saturday, the remainder of the Founder’s Day events start with a kiddie carnival at the Grange and carnival food such as hot dogs and caramel apples.

M. Crow and Co. is also having a barbecue starting at 4 p.m., as well as live music by Matt Harshman, and wine tasting in the store.
