White Bird It’s time to get prepared for the White Bird Medical Relief and Emergency fund-raiser. The chili cookoff will be Sept. 28 downtown. There is a sign-up sheet at the Silver Dollar or you can call any volunteer and let them know that you want to participate. There is a $20 entry fee. There are going to be some great prizes you won’t want to miss out on. All chili must be cooked on site; however, you can soak your beans the night before. After the judging of the chili, around 1 p.m., there will be a $5 dinner that will include all the chili, chili dogs, cornbread and dessert.
There will also be a beer garden.
A raffle will be drawn at the cookoff also. You could win two cords of wood, one load of gravel or a Life Flight membership! Bring your neighbor and share a meal with your community, in support of a really great cause.
There will also be a yard sale behind the Silver Dollar at the storage units on Sept. 28. So, while the chili is cooking, you can go shop for treasures. This would also be a great day to check out your local White Bird Antiques and Canyon House. Pat and Bruce have gone to many auctions and shopping trips, so go see what they’ve got, and all the great stuff we found at the Seattle gift show for Canyon House is coming in daily. There are all kinds of great deals to be found!
Guess what? Mac’s is now serving breakfast! Woo hoo! It’s about time! I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m so excited. Today was the first day they were open for breakfast. They are asking that we all come in and let them know what we’d like to see on the menu. They would appreciate our input and are looking forward to serving the early birds around here. For information you can call Mac’s at 839-2600.
