The City of Washougal, in conjunction with Washougal High School, is planning an old-fashioned bonfire rally Wednesday, at 8:30 p.m., to celebrate the start of the 2012 fall sports seasons for football, golf, soccer, tennis and volleyball.
Students, staff members, athletes and coaches will gather for the rally at the former Hambleton Brothers Lumber Mill property, at Second and “A” streets, near Westlie Ford. The public is invited to attend. Parking is available at the Hambleton property, as well as in the Port of Camas-Washougal parking lot to the west.
The Camas-Washougal Fire Department will prepare the area for the bonfire with safety precautions in place for the people attending. The fire department will have engines and personnel, including volunteers, on site during the bonfire.
For more information, call the school at 954-3100.
After his four touchdown performance against Hudson’s Bay Friday at Kiggins Bowl, Stephen Camden cracks a smile when he thinks about what this football season could be like for Washougal.
“It’s only the first game, but it gets me excited about how this season could turn out if we continue to work hard,” he said. “Everyone is putting everything out there, not only for us, but for Washougal. I’m glad I could play a part in that tonight.”
