Mattawa, Washington ~ After a two-year absence, Mattawa Community Days will make a return on Saturday, August 25. The all-day event will be a time for the community to come together and celebrate everything that makes Mattawa great! Morris Schott Middle School Social Studies teacher Andrew Harlow is co-director of the event.  "We were initially looking in to having a booth at Community Days to help raise money for our student trip to Washington, D.C. & New York next summer.  When we found out Community Days wasn't happening, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to bring back this outstanding event." Community Days will kick off at 6:45 a.m. with a non-denominational prayer at the Hund Park and conclude with the Community Days Harvest Dance at the Desert Aire Senior Center (starting at 7:00 p.m.).  Most of the events will take place in Hund Park and will include a community breakfast, a 10K and 1-mile run, a 3-on-3 basketball tournament; a 5-on-5 indoor soccer tournament; community parade; pie-baking, salsa making, chili baking, and hot dog-eating contests; classic car show, bingo game, a variety of food venues, rock wall, carnival games, and live music and entertainment throughout the entire day. "It has been so exciting, as we go through the process of planning Community Days, to see people's willingness to help, their incredible generosity, and the wide variety of talents and interests that exist in the area," Harlow explains.  "I think people will go away from the day with an outstanding time and a better sense of community." To find out more information about Community Days, or one of the many events, you can contact Andrew Harlow at (509) 831-7529 or Keith Edie at (509) 830-8519.
