KOOSKIA/KAMIAH -- The VFW Ladies Auxiliary hosted their annual chili feed on Nov. 11,

from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., at the VFW Post on Tamarack Road in Kamiah, next door to Loving Hands. Proceeds support many activities of the post.

Kamiah will start the 40th year of the annual Christmas Food Basket program sponsored by the Presbyterian Women’s Club. The program includes representatives from area churches schools, businesses, clubs and Fish and Game Commission. You can help by mailing a donation to EFO, P.O. Box 5, Kamiah, ID 83536. Applications for a Christmas food box are available at the Community Action Partnership office on 4th Street in Kamiah. For information call 935-2412.

The second round of the Opera House Talent Show was held Saturday, Nov. 9, and the crowd favorites were Thann Shira and Josie Laufenburg. The final round will be held on Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Opera House on Main Street in Kooskia. This is a fun event and a great way to show off your talent. Tickets are available from Graves Green Thumb Nursery in Kooskia or by calling 926-0094.

The EFO (Emergency Feeding Outreach) will have their annual harvest dinner Thursday, Nov. 14, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., at the Kamiah Community Presbyterian Church located at 7th and Hill Street. They will be serving ham, baked potato with lots of trimmings, plus there will be gospel music during the event. The Presbyterian Church also sponsors a free meal day on the second Thursday of each month, except for November, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., which is open to the public. Everyone is invited to attend and enjoy. An interesting part of the monthly lunch program is that it is held in the Presbyterian Church facility but the food is furnished by other churches in the community. Cindy Webb tells me that 17 local churches rotate furnishing food and help to keep this program thriving.

Kooskia and Kamiah are both having a Christmas Sharing Tree. Kooskia’s Sterling Bank is sponsoring the Kooskia area drive and the tree will be in their Kooskia branch, and serves residents in Kooskia, Stites and Clearwater. The Kamiah Sharing Tree serves residents with a zip code of 83536. Their tree is in the Central Idaho Agency on Main Street in Kamiah. Parents must preregister their children.

Kamiah Community Partners Coalition (KCPC) will host the sixth annual Festival of Christmas. Holiday arrangements, wreaths and trees designed by local artisans will be donated and auctioned by silent auction beginning Nov. 25 until Dec. 6. Items that are up for bid can be seen at the Central Idaho Agency in Kamiah. Call Sharlene Johnson at 935-7647 for information.

Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Community Center in Kooskia, you can attend the Kooskia community party. Games, including a bounce house, fish pond and bean bag toss among others, will be held for the enjoyment of the children, as well as drawings for prizes for adults and children.

Events and drawings will go on all through the event so plan to stay until the end, and bring the entire family. This event is sponsored by the Kooskia First Presbyterian Church.

Big Cedar Homemakers will be delivering wreaths to businesses on Friday, Nov. 22, and individuals can pick up theirs behind the IOOF Hall on Highway 13 in Kooskia at 10 a.m. Big thanks to all of you who ordered wreaths.

Recicle in Kooskia on Thursday from 3:30-5 p.m., or Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon at the Recycle Center just across the bridge near the old pole yard. Be sure to separate items.

There is a lot going on in our area towns. Check local bulletin boards to find out what is happening, and if you find something going on, or if your group or organization is hosting something, let me know. This is such a great time of the year for caring and sharing. Keep those in the military who cannot be with their families in your mind, heart and prayers. If you know or make news, give me a call.
