Forks High School cheerleaders recently have returned from Universal Cheerleaders Association camp, where they excelled in every way. They even brought home the coveted Banana. In order to win the Banana they had to follow camp rules, show up early to snag the front row by the stage and make sure the UCA staff knew their names before day one was over! Winning the Banana at camp is the ultimate achievement because it is voted on by the UCA staff. The FHS group set a great example for the entire camp.

Tourist of the Day

  • Jul 18, 2014 at 4:00PM

Each Fourth of July some unsuspecting tourists are selected to enjoy all the Forks-Old Fashioned Fourth of July has to offer — the tradition has been going on at least since the early 1960s, maybe even earlier. When Lorie Atwood and Bridget Galvan found themselves in Seattle for training a few days before the Fourth of July they decided that maybe they should check out the Fourth in Forks. They had been to Forks before, being Twilight fans, and they had attended Stephenie Meyer Day several times.
