The 2017 Rainier Bluegrass Pickin' Party Radio Broadcast

Today I found the audio of the 2017 Bluegrass Pickin' Party's 25th anniversary performances of several groups on "The Right Country" radio website.  If you missed this years celebration, or you want to listen to it again, in the comfort of your own home, you can!

You can listen to the following bands:

  • The Pine Top Pickers
  • Tried and Blue
  • Mostly Merle
  • The Grey Sky Ramblers
  • Rusty Hinges
  • The Lewis County Pickers
  • Roosevelt Road
  • Mile High Drive

This is made possible because of work that David Wuller and The Soundman Jackson did.

Remember to tune in to "The Right Country" radio to listen to your favorite country music.

Tracine Farrow, of the Yelm Lions Club, received a call to help a person who needed a wheelchair ramp.  She called the Lacey Sunrise Lions for assistance. Reggie Christen, 976A Tipsoo Loop, Rainier, WA. had an infection that developed into gangrene. He was admitted into the hospital and his leg was amputated.  He was house bound without the use of a ramp.

On July 20th, members from the Rainier Lions, Yelm Lions, and Lacey Sunrise Lions worked together and constructed a 16 foot ramp.  The project was completed in three hours.
