RIGGINS -- Mayor McClure has proclaimed today, Wednesday, May 15, as "Savage Pride Day" in the City of Riggins in recognition of the outstanding athletic accomplishments of our 2012-13 Salmon River Savage football and boys basketball teams. Local businesses and residents are encouraged to join together and celebrate the success of our state champion Salmon River Savages. All students are encouraged to wear Savage gear on that day to include Savage hats. There will be prizes and games throughout the day at SRHS for this event. Coaches and athletes are asked to be available Monday, May 13, at 7 p.m. at Riggins City Hall for the city council's declaration of "Savage Pride Day." The SRHS FFA banquet will be held Wednesday, May 15, in the SRHS multi-purpose room honoring our local FFA members.
It is time to vote yes for the annual Salmon River Joint School District #243 school levy next Tuesday, May 21, 8 a.m.-8 p.m. at the Salmon River Heritage Center behind Crump's Chevron Station or at Canyon Pines RV Park . Our kids deserve the best and the best comes from this community supporting them by voting yes on the annual levy, which more than 90 percent of Idaho schools have to pass to keep their schools up and running.
The annual School Spring Fling will be held Tuesday, May 21, beginning at 6 p.m. at the SRHS multi-purpose room. The Riggins Elementary School, the Ask, After School Kids program, and Riggins PTO will provide a free sloppy joe dinner as well as a book fair, and their annual spring performance in addition to the all-grade art show as a thank you to the community. So get out and vote, then go on up to the high school for a great night with our kids.
Any student interested in entering a piece of art in the art show, needs to have it ready May 2 by 8 a.m. It will need to have some kind of matting with a tag on the front that has student name and grade. Students may enter a piece of photography, shop project, drawing or a painting.
On March 29, Angela (Merritt) Martinez, who graduated from SRHS and has since worked with disabled adults for more than 20 years, was selected to receive the Developmental Disability Champion Award. This award is given to "a person whose leadership and advocacy has had a long, positive effect on the quality of life of Oregonians with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families." Angela, daughter of Barry and Shirley Merritt of Riggins, lives in Independence, Ore., and works for Polk Community Living. Congratulations, Angela!
To honor the photographic skill and artistry of Earl Brockman, as well as his generosity of spirit, his family is giving away his remaining prints. They will be displayed in partnership with the year-end exhibition of student work of the McCall-Donnelly High School Art Club to be held in the McCall-Donnelly High School Commons, from 5- 9 p.m. this Friday, May 17. Although all Brockman's works are free, donations will be accepted; $25 for each work is suggested. The money thus raised will be invested in the buy-back student art fund. Each year, the M-DHS Art Club plans to purchase, frame and permanently display a work of student art. The Earl Brockman Fund would assure continuation of the tradition. For those who know and appreciate Brockman's work, this is a last-chance opportunity to add to your collection. For those who are not familiar with his work, this is a one-time opportunity to view and to acquire a photograph or two of your own. For information, e-mail either cdittmer@ mdsd.org or email@example.com.
