New float trailer arrives, new float builder sought
By Richard Burger
The Grandview community got the chance at the end of last week for its first look at the spanking new $10,000 trailer that will carry the 2015/16 Miss Grandview float.
"It's been a long time coming," said Grandview Chamber President Lonnie Hendrickson.
The trailer the new unit replaced had been deteriorating for several years before the decision was made that it was no longer safe to use.
Early this year, a fundraising effort was begun to fund a replacement, the "Help Keep Us Afloat" campaign.
Sponsorship deadline nears for Wreaths Across America
Program hopes to place wreath at every veteran's grave   

By Richard Burger
Grandview's Wreaths Across America came very close last year to reaching the program's goal of placing a wreath at every one of the 468 veterans' graves in the local cemetery.
This will be the fourth year a Wreaths Across America event will take place in Grandview, and Ginger Emerson, one of the local event organizers, said they hope to make certain that every veteran interred there is honored. Last year, more than 400 wreaths were laid.
The deadline for wreath orders is Nov. 15, and wreaths may be purchased for $15 each, and $5 of each one purchased will go to the Gold Star Mothers of Washington organization to help support their programs, Emerson said.
