We would like to share the most recent fire restrictions with everyone as shared by the Gold Post:

The thunderstorms and dry heat we have been experiencing in the area recently has prompted the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) Northeast District to issue a Regulated Use Closure, which went into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, July 15, 2014.
“All lands protected by the district will be placed under heightened fire safety restrictions at that time, including forest land within one-eighth mile of the district boundary.”

Skully says…. be safe out there folks!
The weather was good for the Memorial Day Flea Market this weekend…..
Next Flea Market in Sumpter is
July 4th – July 7th
See more flea market photos at fergusgoldpost.wordpress.com
Okay, there is a small catch to this offer…..but we promise it has nothing to do with a free cruise from Florida or winning the lottery in India!
Here’s the deal….
To celebrate the new season of the Sumpter Valley Dredge State Park…..we will offer a free scoop of ice cream (of course, you do get to choose your flavor!) to anyone who purchases a Friends of the Dredge membership while visiting the dredge in Sumpter.
A Friends of the Dredge membership really doesn’t cost that much and is a great way to become involved with the restoration and preservation of this great historic icon..……
even if you don’t live here.
As a Friends of the Dredge member, you will receive newsletters that will let you stay current with Sumpter Valley Dredge all year.
To learn more, just be sure to stop in at the Friends of the Dredge Interpretive Store on your next visit to the Sumpter Valley Dredge.
Sorry, but we do have to insert a small disclaimer here…..
To quality for your free scoop of ice cream, you must purchase a Friends of the Dredge membership while visiting the Sumpter Valley Dredge in person and at that time, you will receive a coupon that can be redeemed for a scoop of our regular hard ice cream.
This offer is good during the season of the Sumpter Valley Dredge State Park
which ends Oct 31st, 2014.

Fall colors were great this year…but it seems we are sliding into colder temps which can only mean one thing in Sumpter……..
In Sumpter, we aren’t afraid of the cold……we just know what to do to warm up! :)
We would like to remind everyone that it’s fall again in Sumpter! Of course, everywhere you look in Sumpter you can see bright vibrant fall colors popping out – and the drive up the mountain is breathtaking.….but we wanted to show you that perhaps the best place to enjoy these radiant fall colors is at the
and by the way…..
this beautiful state park just happens to be right outside our back door……
But if this sounds like a good idea….you’d better hurry….the state park closes for the season on Oct 30th and won’t open again until May 1st.
So…do you think a cozy fall weekend in Sumpter might be in order?
We’ll be waiting by the phone just in case you decide this might be a good idea! :)
Oh, and did you know about our cabin special….?
stay three or more nights and get the fourth night FREE!
give us a call for details!
Okay, so now that you all know it’s National Ice Cream month..what possbile excuse could you think of to not have an ice cream cone at the Scoop? :)

Can’t believe I just learned recently July is National Ice Cream Month! It actually started back in 1984 when President Ronald Reagan recognized the impact eating ice cream has on 90% of the nation’s population. Now, how in the world do you think I missed that reason for celebration? One will surely never know!
With it being summertime, what better treat to cool the summer heat than ice cream! More than likely you can reflect back on your childhood days and remember the scream for ice cream! I know I surely can. Even with our own kids the sound of the ice cream truck coming down the street brought on giggles, laughter and scampering to see who could get there first!
So, what are you waiting for – an engraved invitation?…
