"Basically, it started out as an idea for a blues festival here in the valley," Wilcox said. "We sought out different sites where we could have it." Magnolia has been on some nine "blues cruises," and he hired some of the acts from those, Wilcox said. "Some of the musicians on the blues cruises wanted to play smaller venues." "We named it Harvest Moon because this is the grass seed capital of the world," Wilcox said, and it's about harvest season. The group started out looking in Sweet Home, but while they were looking, the Sweet Home Rodeo was still expected to operate this year, Wilcox said. "Cheadle Lake basically dropped into our laps. It was available for our dates." They didn't want to try to use school property, trampling the grass two weeks apart with the Jamboree, she said. "When Cheadle Lake was offered to us, we went and had a look at the site." With some 35 acres, it was plenty, she said. They got the idea because they heard from many blues fans that they weren't able to make it to the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival. "The foundation has done a fantastic job getting this site / Deaths From page 2 etery. Death Notices Edward Arthur Cutler, 88, of Sweet Home died Aug. 12, 2012.

"You won't find greener grass than at Cheadle Lake." They decided to bring a blues festival to the mid-Willamette Valley and provide more opportunities for Wilcox said, but they anticipate the residents of the mid-valley and 3,000 to 5,000 at the festival's first further south, outing.

Edna loved poetry, "The Touch of the Master's Hand" was one of her favorites and she want- ed it shared. "Whenever your life is out of tune, and no melody soothes your soul, look to the Master whose gentle touch will bless you and make you whole. "Like an old violin with so little worth, a life may be far less than grand, but may be trans- formed in a moment, you see, by The Touch of The Master's Hand." Edna is survived by her son Michael and his wife Pamela Gar- ber; daughter Marilyn and her husband Steven Richards; sister Lelia Cole; grandchildren: Traci and Brent Voile of Seattle, Wash., Carly and Jason Dolan of Ukiah, Calif., Tina and Dave Melby and Matthew Garber of Sweet Home; 12 great-grandchildren: Austin, Lucas, and Makenna Melbye, Koby, Brayden, Dayne, Syndelle, and Taivyn Garber, Max and Ma- son Voile, and Sadie and Cash Dolan. She was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Wayne Garber; baby daughter Marjorie Lou Garber; brother Melvin More- head; great-granddaughter Shaina Tyler Nicole Garber and her par- ents, James and Vera Morehead. A private burial was held Monday, August 13, 2012, at Gil- liland Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, Edna wanted donations to Evergreen Hospice. Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling the arrangements. Obituary Edna Lanore Garber, 89, of Sweet Home passed away Satur- day. She was born in Sweet Home to Jim and Vera (Coulter) More- head. Edna was raised on the prop- erty her father bought from his grandparents, John and Rachel Galbrith in 1912. She lived her entire life on the Ames Donation Land Claim. Edna was a native of Sweet Home and attended grade school and high school, graduating in 1941. She was a member of the Sweet Home High School Band, playing the clarinet, and Edna also played in a trio at many commu- nity functions. She worked at White's Cafe and Columbia River Log Scaling as the office secretary. A volunteer in the Air Force as a Ground Ob- server, Edna spotted planes during World War II and was promoted to supervisor during the three years she served. Edna married Wayne Garber in February of 1944. She worked at the Sweet Home Church of Christ as a Deaconess, playing piano for services, teaching chil- dren's Sunday school classes, and arranging funeral dinners. In the later years Wayne and Edna took care of the lawn work at the church. They were both baptized members of the church. They owned Garber Logging for years, where Edna was the bookkeeper. Her hobbies included keeping a magnificent yard, sce- nic photography, and she made each of her four grandchildren keepsake memory books. She also enjoyed elk hunting and camping with friends, trips to the ocean, PaM and Girls Club has exclusive rights to sell bottled water at the festival, Wilcox said, and The River Center will operate a food drive: The Albany American Legion, Post 10, will host the Sunday pancake breakfast as a fund-raising toot to help rebuild. The Legion Hall was destroyed by arson. The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Greater Santiam also will provide showers during the event. A shuttle will be available from the campground to the club in Lebanon. Misting tents and alternative water access also is available to help keep concertgoers healthy during the expected hot weather. "It is a challenge," Wilcox said. "It's crazy as with any first-year event. Everybody sits back to see how it comes together." But it's drawing a lot of interest from Corvallis to Sweet Home, Wilcox said. And visitors are coming from San Diego, Calif., to Chicago. Ticket sales have been picking up lately, Wilcox said. They started selling in February, and it's been surprising how well they've been selling as publicity has increased. Volunteers are still needed, Wilcox said. The event has about 150, but organizers would love to have 300. Volunteers may sign up at the festival website, www. harvestmoon2012.com or call Kim Almasie at (541) 543-4062.
