Anyone who observes the group working diligently on the Benham Lane home of Gloria Winkler will be encouraged to know that it’s all about friends helping friends, according to Christine Belmont.

Winkler was surprised last week when a group of friends, coordinated by Belmont, began pulling the skirting and siding off of her home.

Winkler has, over the years, used her musical talents to bring joy and cheer to many others, playing and singing at Good Samaritan Society, Chetco Activity Center, and with Carl Rovainen and his Boondock Band for many local events. However, a stroke last year has curtailed some of her activities.

Members of Brookings Boy Scout Troop 32 earned merit badges and patches during a recent week-long summer camp at Camp Meriwether just north of Tillamook.

In addition to doing projects to earn badges and patches, the Scouts also took part in campfire activities, waterfront programs and beach parties.

Those earning badges included Morgan Loring, who had to observe nature and write reports in order to earn his merit badge in environmental science. He also enjoyed Chamberlain Lake and the snorkeling class. Diving down into the lake and visiting a sunken sailboat was part of the adventure, Loring said.
