One constant that visitors and residents of Trout Lake can count on is to be greeted by Bev Meyer’s smiling face when they enter the Trout Lake Grocery, even when that smile was behind a mask.
Bev and her business have always been an integral part of the community of Trout Lake, but never more so than during this past year and a half during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Although it was often a struggle to keep track of the changing regulations for sanitation and safety, and difficult to keep some items stocked, Bev worked hard to ensure that this community was able to obtain the items they needed. Besides keeping her store open, and the shelves full, Bev helped administer the funds donated by the community to ensure that people who were adversely affected by the pandemic would not go without.
She is no stranger to community service. The store donates to many charitable organizations. She is a long time member of the Trout Lake Business Association, where she is currently serving as Treasurer, as well as the bookkeeper for the Trout Lake Grange.
Bev was born at the hospital in Hood River, “but only because that was the only hospital in the area at that time.” She graduated from Trout Lake School in 1971. During her high school years, she worked for Gil and Velda Meyer, owners of the grocery store at that time. In 1973, she married Greg Meyer, their son. They were in Alaska from 1974 until 1977, when they returned to Trout Lake. In 1978, Bev and Greg purchased the store from Greg’s parents. She has been there ever since.
Bev wants to thank the community for supporting her business, and to remind them that the local customers are the reason that she is able to make it through the winter months.
THE TROUT LAKE FAIR
Founded in 1965 by Bernice Duke and Betty Schmid, the Trout Lake Fair has become an outstanding community tradition. It takes more than a hundred people to make this three day event possible. Please thank all these dedicated volunteers.
For the first 39 years, the Fair was an informal activity carried on in the spirit of the community by the efforts of many individuals. In the fall of 2004, the Fair was incorporated as a Nonprofit Corporation in the State of Washington. It was agreed that this was the best way to insure continuity of the Fair and to limit liability. Accordingly, bylaws were written and papers were filed with the State. The date of incorporation was November 2, 2004. Lake Fair
In order to keep us focused the Fair Board adopted the following Trout Lake Fair Charter:
“The Trout Lake Fair is a fun family festival for and by the Trout Lake Community
and guests. This celebration highlights the interests and talents of the residents
of the valley and provides community service fundraising opportunities.”
In keeping with our bylaws we now have the following officers and directors:
Dennis Hill, President
Tim Webster, Vice President
Doug Anderson, Secretary
Bruce Tucker, Treasurer
Each fall there is an annual meeting of the membership of the Trout Lake Fair. According to the bylaws “Corporation membership shall be open to any Trout Lake resident that wishes to participate.” If you come, your vote counts. The bylaws provide that the membership meet annually to elect directors and conduct other business as required. Watch for public announcements of this meeting and come join us.
Sincerely: Dennis Hill, President & Fair Coordinator
