CATHLAMET, Wash. - Have you seen people you would describe as "different," "funny" or "just plain crazy?" A newly formed action group, Champion Diversity, hopes to educate people on communication skills and diversity issues to promote peace and understanding. Organizers are holding the first Champion Diversity Walk and Mini-Fair from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 26 at the Elochaman Slough Marina.

Sign up for the walk by 1 p.m. and receive a free Champion Diversity T-shirt. Walkers will follow Diversity Dog on an easy route, and upon return to the marina will receive a water bottle and free snow cones.

Guest speakers will give presentations while the walkers are relaxing, and local representatives of organizations such as the Timberlands Regional Support Network, National Association for the Mentally Ill and Alcoholics Anonymous will be on hand with brochures and meeting information.

For information about Champion Diversity and Sunday's events, call Mary Helen Pederson at (360) 795-8610.
