Deming Log SHOW

The Deming Log Show is no ordinary logging show. From its inception to goal has been to raise money for injured loggers in Whatcom County. So when it gets a big turnout, like this year’s show held June 4 and 5, it’s doubly great — for those enjoying the festivities as well as the families of healing loggers. The 2005 Deming Log Show had special meaning for President Ryan Lenssen. He was hurt this year, and some of the proceeds have gone toward his lengthy recovery.

It was a highlight of the show when he was presented, along with his wife Wendy, with the Golden Ax award. “He’s our youngest president and he’s our first president to be president four years. He’s put in a lot of hard work and he’s just a heck of a guy,” says Shelly DeBruin. Shelly, an officer in the ladies auxiliary, says that the show gets in your blood. “My parents were there the first year, in the BBQ area. They started bringing me down when I was two. The show has helped my grandfather and a couple of my uncles. It’s a good thing we do here.”

Next year’s show will be held on June 3 and 4. If you come on down to Deming, Washington, you’ll not only enjoy viewing machinery, logger events and some good food, you’ll be helping out your fellow logger as well.
