Rainier Community Cares is offering drug bags, free of charge, while supplies last. These lockable bags keep your prescriptions safe. They are used to help prevent misuse, or accidental use of drugs in your home.
You do not have to be a resident of Yelm or Rainier to receive one of these bags during normal hours.
- Just stop in and ask for one in Yelm at Tim's Pharmacy & Rite Aid Drugs.
- In Rainier you can pick a bag up at the Rainier school nurses office and Rainier City Hall.
These bags are great for parents and grandparents alike, helping to keep keep our families safe.

Since the beginning of January we have been surveying the bird population every Thursday close to the proposed tower site...3 hours after dawn and 3 hours at dusk. Black Hills Audubon Members are participating and helping our fledgling birders from our community...It is lots of fun and rewarding!
As the weather changes and birds nest we expect even more activity than ever!
Please see the BHAS Dinner Handout (attached) for the preliminary results of our surveys!
Help spread the word to the community at large about our Bird Survey for preserving wildlife habitat and all of the wonderful species and bird herds (flocks and gaggles) we have observed. Two pairs of Bald Eagles sat peacefully in a tree for over an hour on the Smith Wetland Property last Thursday.
If you would like to participate in our survey, please contact us at this email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Carolyn (360) 446-0468 and we will get back to you!
We welcome volunteers and you can train while surveying! We even have beautiful color laminated booklets for identification purposes.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who make $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.
In addition to VITA, the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) program offers free tax help for all taxpayers, particularly those who are 60 years of age and older, specializing in questions about pensions and retirement-related issues unique to seniors. The IRS-certified volunteers who provide tax counseling are often retired individuals associated with non-profit organizations that receive grants from the IRS.
To access these resources, you can use the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Locator tool on IRS.gov, or the AARP Tax-Aide Site Locator, which allow users to input their zip code to find the closest locations.
More information on resources provided for free tax preparation can be found online on IRS.gov.More updates and information from me is available on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, or Medium, and subscribe to the email newsletter.
Please stay in touch.
