Hood River News: August 16, 2008: Peace Village: Kids and counselors run fast during a “Mosquito, Salmon, Bear” game during the week-long Peace Village at Columbia Hills Grange near Lyle. Churches and organizations combined to sponsor games, activities, fieldtrips and workshops based at the Grange for kids 5-14 from Hood River, Klickitat and Skamania counties. In addition to crafts, skits, games and snacks, students learned drumming, yoga, storytelling and about peaceful conflict resolution, healthy nutrition and respect for the environment.
