Yesterday I visited Mossyrock Elementary with my No Bullies Allowed assembly. Christie and the PTA had a gift bag with water, fresh fruit, a Clif bar, and a souvenir Mossyrock t-shirt for me when I arrived! Now I am totally spoiled 🙂
The last time I performed in Mossyrock was for their Blueberry Festival a couple of years ago. It’s a beautiful location along rural Highway 12 in Lewis County. On the way I passed the DeGoede Bulb Farm (not much happening this time of year) and Mayfield Lake. An unusual light snow that morning gave everything a wintery look.
I arrived in town early and visited the Mossyrock Dam. It’s very impressive, and the tallest dam in Washington. It provides power for about 78,000 homes in western Washington. Fun fact: the concrete used to build the dam would fill 127,000 dump trucks. (Don’t even ask how many bags of sackcrete that would be!)
On my way back along Highway 12 I checked out the Mayfield Dam. Sometime I’d like to take a tour inside one of these power plants.
That evening I performed for the Winlock Lions Club as they celebrated their 65th anniversary. It was a very fun show at the Hope Grange in Winlock that ended with a standing ovation.
