Jessee & his daughter Bobbie Cook, waiting to "Ride and Toss Beach Balls" from the Ford Mustang.

RCC to give out Beach Balls at “Movie in the Park”

We huffed and puffed & blew up hundreds of beach balls for the audience at the Yelm Prairie Day's Parade. Sh..... the mini-compressor helped us blow up most of the beach balls.   Even though the inside of the truck bed and cab were filled with beach balls & the Ford Mustang was loaded with beach balls... we ran out of them at about Clark Street.  We're sorry, did not have enough inflatable beach balls on hand for everyone who attended the Yelm Prairie Days Parade. Come and get your Rainier Community Cares Beach Ball If you still want a mini beach ball come join us at the "Movie in the Park" on Saturday Night.  We are showing "Despicable Me 2" and there will be popcorn and otter pops.

Before the movie started, Rainier Cub Scout Pack #307 gave out free Otter Pops.  A long-time resident of Rainier, Jill Wilkinson, her daughter Elizabeth and several students from Rainier Middle School  ASB brought a popcorn machine made fresh popcorn.

By 9 p.m., the crowd had grown to over 150 people, who had brought chairs and blankets so they'd be comfortable as they watched the show.  Before the show a few announcements were made, followed ...

Family Fun Day 2014

FREE Family Fun Day

The Rainier Lions Club will be hosting a Family Fun Day again this year at the Rainier Elementary School Gym on May 9th from 11 am to 4 pm.   Rainier Community Cares will be supplying FREE food for all that attend (okay, dogs and chips, not sure that falls in the food category).  The intent is just to give families with children an opportunity to have some fun, make things & learn things without having to spend money. In past years, we've made bird houses, mason bee hives, kites (one even flew), spinning tops, done face painting, t-shirt coloring, given away free flags, had demonstrations from Rossi Boots 3-D printer (really neat), showed people how to raise worms (outside) and much, much more! This year some of the groups that will be there are The American Legion, the Rainier Lions, Thurston Fire, Thurston Sheriffs Department, Sea Mar in Yelm, Rainier ...
