Jack Hendrickson, 17, Mariah Dickerson, 17, Heather Segle, 17, David Siemers, 18, and Dale Segle, 9, gathered for a watermelon snack before heading out to an outdoor movie in Lincoln Park. The entire group is from the Entiat area. Dwayne Hockett of East Wenatchee snapped this photo of the group in front of his home on a stormy day last fall. “The kids were sitting on my deck feasting on a delicious local-grown watermelon. The sky suddenly grew very dark followed by thunder and lightning and a short summer shower. Little did we know at the time that by next morning the hills behind Wenatchee would be ablaze with some of the worst and most dangerous brush and forest fires in the history of the valley. It surely was a day to remember,” said Hockett.
