Benefit in Granite Falls
The Granite Falls Eagles Club is putting on a dinner and hosting a benefit concert from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday for Holly Burnside, a young mother of two small children who lives in the community.
She has been diagnosed with a rare, genetic disease called Ankylosing spondylitis, a long-term disease that involves inflammation of the joints between the spinal bones, and the joints between the spine and pelvis.
Her back is broken as a result and she recently lost her job because of her inability to perform her duties.
The dinner, which is free, is at the club at 402 N. Granite Falls Ave., Granite Falls. The band is called, "Likerswitch." Donated items will be raffled for the benefit of Burnside.

Rent a tree, help salmon: The Adopt A Stream Foundation plans to rent live Christmas trees between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Dec. 15 at the Northwest Stream Center in Snohomish County's McCollum Park 600 128th St. SE, Everett, WA 98208. The cost is $35 a tree.
Driving directions are at www.streamkeeper.org/aasf/ Contact.html.
There will be more than 200 trees that include Sitka spruce, western red cedar and Douglas fir. Most trees will be 3 to 4 feet high. Directions on how to keep your trees live and healthy will be provided.
Live trees that are returned after the holidays to the Adopt A Stream Foundation will be planted in the new year next to salmon streams in the local area. For more information, call 425-316-8592.
