States Day in Prosser

By Victoria Walker
On Monday, Sept. 1 Prosser will celebrate States Day. In its 89th year, Prosser's States Day Celebration and Parade is a time of tradition, "when old friends meet."
Held on Labor Day every Sept., States Day originally was a time when farmers would put down the plow and head in to town for an old fashioned family picnic. They played games, danced, and over the years new events were added to the day. Back in the day, a rival baseball game was held between neighboring towns was the highlight of States Day for many years.
Club News

"There's no people like show people…."
That is a line from a song in "Annie Get Your Gun" and, it is true!
Recently, the Toppenish Creek Players, a community theater troupe in the upper Yakima Valley, disbanded. Those of us involved with the Princess Theatre and Valley Theater Company certainly understand the challenges in maintaining a community theater troupe in a small town.
