The Annual State's Day Celebration and Parade is coming

By Victoria Walker
Prosser's States Day Celebration and Parade is a time "when old friends meet." "This is Prosser's most home town, filled with community pride event," stated Humberto Rodriquez, Executive Director of Prosser Chamber of Commerce.
Back in the olden days States Day was held on Labor Day every September.  This was a time when farmers would put down their plows and head into town for an old fashioned family picnic. Games were played, a dance was held, and over the years new events were added to the day. A rival baseball game between neighboring towns was the highlight for many years.
Pass the hat to flush the fund

By Victoria Walker
The Horse Heaven Saloon is hosting a fundraising dinner for The Princess Theatre.  "I am a patron of the arts and sit on the Princes theatre board," said Gary Vegar, owner of the saloon. 
In late spring, the Prosser theatre, owned by the not-for-profit Valley Theatre Company, experienced a broken sewer line. Because the break was outside the building, the expensive repairs were not covered by the theater troupe's insurance.  "We wanted to be helpful as $14,000+ was a pretty big hit for the theatre. 
The event is planned for Monday, Aug. 31 at 6 p.m. at the Saloon.  The cost is$40.00 per person, which includes the meal and beverages.  Seating is limited to 60. Tickets are available by calling the Saloon at 509-781-6228.
