Weekend Events Update: March 26th – March 27th

Saturday March 26th:       We all have seen our fair share of mushrooms in our yards, and in the forests in Thurston County. As with any mushrooms that we may find outside of a grocery store, there is always the question of whether or not the little  things are toxic, or destined for dinner. Mushroom expert Tom Keller, will help clear up this dilemma once and for all with his class entitled, “Mushroom Hunting,” that will be taking place from 1:30PM to 2:30PM at the Yelm Timberland Library ( ) the class is completely free to attend, and is open to both adults and teens.


Saturday March 26th:       Are you looking for some quality musical entertainment this weekend? Well you’re in luck; the experienced and talented singer/songwriter Tom Kimmel will be in concert at an Olympia Acoustic show this Saturday! This event will be a real treat for all music lovers. Since the 1980’s Kimmel has had his songs recorded by greats like Johnny Cash, Art Garfunkel, and more. Since then, he has also become well known for his own excellent performances, and published works of poetry.

This event is exclusive! The exact location of the concert will only be divulged to those who make reservations ahead of time by sending an email to: olymusic@comcast.net Please hurry while there is still time!

There is no set ticket price to attend the event, however the suggested donation is $20.
