Basketball clinic

A "Future Spartan" basketball clinic is planned for Saturday, June 21, at the Forks High School main gym. The clinic will focus on the fundamentals of the game.
For those that will be entering grades 5-8 next school year the clinic will start at 10 a.m.
The cost for the clinic is $5 per player. The first 80 players get a T-shirt.
Paperwork needed to participate in the clinic is available at the middle and elementary schools. For questions or more information, contact Rick Gooding at 780-0310.
Share your talents!
Do you have a special talent or gift you are willing to share? If, so there is a great opportunity for you! Concerned Citizens Families First Center (a United Way sponsored program) would like to tap your talents to offer classes for children, youth, adults and families.

Fourth of July Art Show
The Far West Art League will be hosting an art/photo/craft show during the Forks Old-Fashioned Fourth of July celebration at the new Peninsula College extension site (the former B of A building) and are seeking entries.
There is no entry fee for craft items, but space is limited for multiple entries of the same design. Entries for the art show must be from Olympic Peninsula artists and are limited to three per person and completed within the last two years. The same goes for the photo show.
There also will be a junior photo division for those 18 years and younger.
Complete rules for all divisions of the show are detailed on the official entry forms that are available at the Forks Forum office. For more information or questions, contact Jeanette Gilmore at 374-5137.


Help Habitat celebrate the Fourth

Habitat for Humanity is moving forward to reconnect with previous volunteers and sign up some new ones. If you would like to sign up to help with the Habitat build in Forks, go to and fill out the application. For those that want to assist with fundraising on July 4 or represent Habitat in the parade, contact Nora Alwarth at 360-310-2744 and don't forget the Habitat Store at 728 E. Front St. in Port Angeles, a nonprofit fundraising enterprise for the Habitat home building program. Every dollar spent at the Habitat Store funds the construction of homes for Habitat families in Clallam County.
