There are a couple events happening this weekend that I wanted to make sure you knew about. One is a great cause benefiting those in need in our community, and the other is a celebration of heritage.
Eatonville Wild Game Feed
Saturday, June 25Where:
Eatonville Eagles, 100 Weyerhaeuser Road North, Eatonville.What:
Various events are planned throughout the day to benefit two worthy Eatonville neighbors. Read more at the event website
, including suggested donation amounts.About the event:
The Stover family started the wild game feed over 15 years ago as an annual event held at their house in Eatonville. Originally it was a small event for close friends and family to gather after hunting season, share their favorite wild game dishes, tell hunting stories, and show off their trophies. Over the years, attendance increased and it evolved into more of a fundraiser for locals in need. In 2018, the event was relocated to the Eatonville Eagles to accommodate more guests, a live and silent auction, live band, and horseshoe tournament. There is now a committee of approximately ten Eatonville locals who meet 1-2 times a month to plan the event, making it one of the largest fundraisers of it's kind in the area.
2022 Tacoma Highland Games

Where: Frontier Park, 21718 Meridian Ave E, Graham
What: Celebrate your Highlander Heritage at this event that draws people from around the region for competitions, music, food and fun. Find the full event listings, plus ticket information at the event website.
About the event: The first event was held in 1970 when a group gathered to say "If Seattle can do it, why can't we?!" The rest is history! The event has grown over the years to add more activities and competitions and is a wonderful celebration of Scottish history and heritage.
Grateful for you!
