Fourteen members and guest Debbie Brotnov enjoyed a potluck salad luncheon and a scrumptious Cheryln Pankey dessert prior to the Sept. 17 meeting at the Harris Ridge home of Rick and Lu Eckhardt. Members voted to donate $100 for supplies for the CV Elementary Fall and Winter garden. The project chairman is Jean Carroll. Members were thanked for their generous food and produce donations which they bring to each monthly meeting and are distributed to the Kooskia Food Bank and the Emergency Feeding Outreach in Kamiah. The club’s cookbooks, gloves and T-shirts will be available for purchase. The Highway 12 litter pickup date is Oct. 31. All volunteers are to meet at the Kooskia kiosk at 8 a.m. for instructions from Chairman Lenette Smith.

Our next club meeting is Oct. 22 at the home of Lois Frantzich in Kamiah. The meeting begins at 11 a.m., and please arrive in Halloween costume.
