PAGE 2 The annual senior picnic was superbly timed this year, lazing across Maryhitl Park's rain-greened lawns the last week of August, square on a sun-drenched Friday. Once the volunteer crew from Klickitat County Senior Services had served lunch in the shade - they were round- ly applauded - the Old Time Fiddlers, led by KCSS direc- tor Roger Gadway, enter- tained. The ninth annual Outstanding Senior Volunteer recognition awards honored three who were pre- sent and one who was not. John and Alice Mattox of Dallesport learned that they had been chosen as this year's volunteers of the year. After an introduction by Nada McMurrin of Ly]e, who nomi- nated them, the Mattoxes stood for the audience's applause. Beloved in their community, the Mattoxes lend seniors a helping hand whenever it is needed. Gineva Hatcher of White Salmon was also recognized as an honored nominee, receiving an introduction by nominators Lila Webberley of Trout Lake and Jeanette Wroe of White Salmon as well as a round of applause. Hatcher, a member of the Kliekitat Senior Council, has been particularly active help- ing seniors since losing her husband, Emmitt. Margaret Fuller of White Photo by Sam Lowry Alice and John Mattox of Dallesport, Klickitat County Senior Services' Volunteers of the Year, were honored at the annual Senior Picnic in Maryhill State Park. Salmon was also nominated; sadly, she passed away some time before the event honor- ing her contributions. Robert Clayton of Bingen, who nominated Fuller, spoke of her volunteer work and her care for others. DOUBLE TROUBLE While excavating to fix a water-line leak on Sentinel Street last week, Goldendale city workers snagged a gas line, creating not only a muddy but a fragrant mess. Public Works director Dave Griffin called it a "freak accident," caused by unmapped meanders in one of just a few plas- tic lines laid during a three-year gap in underground-line technology, when guide-wires, precisely detectable by surface metal detectors, had not yet been introduced.
