More Historic Pages plus the Fireweed Festival

I am continuing to add to my two on-going historic pages: The Klondike Mines Railway and the Kennecott mines. Several new pages appear today.

We had our big Fireweed Festival weekend Saturday. It was down a full third from the previous year, probably largely due to the increased cost of travel. I featured the Ramblers Band and provided a free salmon bake with potato salad and baked beans. Even with the diminished participation, the bar was full. Just as last year, I had set up an outdoor stage for the band. We had to move the band indoors by 9pm due to the unusually cold weather, even though it was mid-summer and clear outside. Even though the overall take was somewhat disappointing, the decrease in business from last year was not unexpected.
