Where Do You Read the Voice? Sharon Bernal took her copy of the Voice on a recent trip to South Carolina where she visited Savannah and Beaufort. Charleston was the last stop on her trip-here she is in the market area of historic downtown Charleston getting ready to take a carriage tour of the downtown area.
Classified Employees March 4th through the 8th was Classified Employees Appreciation Week at the Vernonia Schools. Some of the employees took themselves out to the Blue House Cafe to celebrate, where we found them living it up! And reading the Voice. Thank you to all the hard working employees at the School District who do so much for our kids!
Congratulations! “One year ago, we went on our first date. Today, he asked me to marry him!” That’s how Vernonia’s favorite cowgirl, Mackenzie Carr announced on Facebook her engagement to Mr. Jeremy Ivie. Jeremy is from Kaycee, WY. “We met one year ago in Houston, TX,” explains Mackenzie. “He happened to be helping a mutual friend with their rodeo stock at Rodeo Houston and I was there working as Miss Rodeo America.”
Congratulations to the happy couple and of course to Alan and Barb Carr, Mackenzie’s parents.
And More Congratulations! Stephanie Carr took time out while in labor to catch up on reading The Voice. Stephanie and dad Jesse Bosrt welcomed Miss Leilani Joyce Bosrt into the world on March 11th. Leilani weighed 7lbs 13 oz and measured 20 inches.

Speaking of Birthdays Kathy Larsen celebrated her recent birthday with a bunch of friends at the All In Pub and Eatery. As many of you know, Kathy operates the Made in Vernonia store in town and is a great promoter of the community of Vernonia and all of our artists, crafters, woodworkers and everyone else who makes things around here. For Kathy’s party, Rachel Langmaid made her quickly-becoming-famous carrot cake, which was simply beautiful, like all of Rachel’s creations. The crew at the All in Pub did a fantastic job handling the large and overflowing table of friends who joined Kathy for her evening of celebration. How old is Kathy you might ask? Well, we’re not telling, but we’ll just say “Old enough to know better, but young enough not to care!” Happy Birthday, Kathy!
In Case You Missed It Vernonia had a good turn out for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
