Fourth: Festivities lead off with Old Fashioned Social

The carnival games also
encompass a sweet sim-
plicity that, for many, har-
ken back to their childhood
years. Kids, and many adults,
spent the afternoon getting
their faces painted, “fishing”
for prizes, and tossing bean
bags. For Heman and other
volunteers, there is joy in
“watching the kids, seeing
their faces, their reaction to
things as simple as throwing
a string over a wall,” he said.
Between setup, running
the event, and tear down,
putting on the social relies on
participation from numerous
volunteers, including board
and community members.
According to Wright, they
had a married couple who
used to own a home in Sea-
side but have since moved to
Portland return to volunteer
for the social.
In general, he said, the
event not only serves as a
fundraiser but also helps
bring awareness to Seaside’s
museum and what it offers
for the public.
