CASHMERE — There’s something very creative going on in Cashmere. The Cashmere Senior Center — that homey business front at 120 Cottage Ave. where knitting, checkers and card games have been principal forms of excitement for 35 years — has been transformed into a vibrant art gallery and activities center.

WENATCHEE — For newlyweds Ted Burgess and Lois Grable-Burgess, both more than 80 years old, the dancing began from almost the first moment they met. Ted recalled, “There was a spark right from the start. I liked what I saw, so I asked her immediately if she would go out with me.”
