Documentary Records Rural Life In Orchard Prairie

By The Spokesman-Review

In 1979, when the community of Orchard Prairie observed its 100th anniversary, the celebration was a “whiz-bang, all-day-and-into-the-night” affair.

So says one of the narrators of “A Place in the Country,” a 25-minute cinematic love letter to the Spokane-area rural community.

Produced by Hamilton Photography and Sharman Communications, the film will be shown at 8 and 9 p.m.

Saturday at the Central Grange, 7001 E. Bigelow Gulch Road. Intended as a memorial to long-time resident Violet Clothier, “A Place in the Country” is a home-movie history buoyed by contemporary and archival film and photos.

The showings are free and open to the public.
