We have the date for the 2018 Annual Windermere Shred Day in hand! Set aside a couple hours on May 19, 2018 from 11-2 to get your shred on down at the Windermere office at 2900 W Broadway. This year we will have 1 truck available with a 5 box limit. Bring a canned or box food donation for the local food bank and we can continue paying it forward.
Funny story about last years event is that we ran out of truck space in the first 2 hours! So it’s best to show up early so that we don’t have a full truck. It will be a drop and go service on the day of the event.
Don’t forget to come down and support your downtown with the new (hopefully annual) event of Moses Lake Brews and Tunes Saturday February 24th all throughout the downtown stores. You will find a breweries and live music in 9 different storefronts.

I only ask because I don’t think I am. I honestly don’t think I can do purple in my house even if it DID win color of the year…. What do you think?
Pantone has done it again: their 2018 color of the year is bold, beautiful, and nothing like the other color predictions we’ve seen for next year. The company says their pick, Ultra Violet 18-3838, is a “dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade” and “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future” — and the design industry agrees.
“There’s a hint of fantasy in this color — something almost unreal and fabulist about it, after all, real ultra violet rays are beyond human comprehension – the naked eye can’t see them!” says Editor in Chief of House Beautiful, Sophie Donelson. “I like the magic, optimism, and fearlessness it invokes. At home, I’d use it to envelope yourself, royals style – how about a least a mohair throw, it’s not quiet a velvet cape, but it’ll do!” We bet a plush velvet bench will do the trick, as seen in this dining area.
Nancy Fire, creative director of HGTV HOME, Design Works International, and Studio NYC Design, says she’s already thinking about how she can use it in her design work. “Ultra Violet works well as an accent pillow, wallpaper geometric combined with grey, and, of course, a regal paint color that plays well with grey, loden green, and many neutrals,” Fire says.
We think using this bold color as a statement, not to fill an entire room, is key if you usually stick with neutrals and safe shades — and Abbe Fenimore from Studio Ten 25 agrees. “When used in small doses as an accent color it can be really rich and feminine. I love it paired with pinks, greens, and metallics, especially gold and brass. You really only need a little bit of it to make a statement!” Fenimore says.
However, not everyone was on board when they first saw the shade. “I’m not a big fan of the color purple in general,” says Jessica McClendon from Glamour Nest. “However, this color is perfect for those who want to try something a little bit adventurous. It’s definitely no Rose Quartz or Serenity, as it is better suited to be more of an accent color.” So if you are a fan of purple, and a risk-taker, this color is calling your name—-Lauren Smith
The Moses Lake Ag parade has been a staple in this Agriculture town for over 20 years now. Started in 1995 by Sue Tebow this year she will be honored with the title “Grand Marshall” of this yearly parade.
This parade, on December 1st, filled with lighted tractors, farm equipment, and community merchants, is a perfect accompaniment to the close ties that we share with Agriculture here in the Basin. If you’ve lived here long enough we all know and have been helped in some way by the local farmers and their contribution to the community. Just look towards the lighted corridor on I-90 through Grant County and you will see their willingness to make the holidays brighter even for those driving back and forth across the state. Farm land ablaze with Christmas characters for miles keeps us all entertained in those long hours of driving.
This parade honoring our local farmers will begin in Sinkiuse square at 5:00 pm. The local stores will remain open for shoppers and on the streets you will find toasted marshmallows, hot chocolate, fresh made mini doughnuts and best of all FREE french fries donated by Simplot. In addition to the food there will be local dance and singing talent organized by Dale Roth in the square. Lighted parade will begin at 7:00.
All of this is put on and hosted by the Moses Lake Business Association as they strive to supply this city with a thriving downtown community where local residents can enjoy the local food and fare. Come join us, bundle up warm, as we pay tribute to the industry that keeps food on our table. We could not do it without all the help from this giving community.
