Garden club receives $500

KAMIAH — Valley Garden Club received a $500 check, and a certificate from the National Garden Club of St Louis, Mo., for their Operation Wildflower Civic Project using native plants. The award was for the work the club did on the Kelly Creek Work Station. The project began in January 2012 in cooperation with Clearwater National Forest represented by employees, Kearstin Edwards and Bonnie Schoenfeld. The garden, designed by Stevie Westberg and Jean Carrol and planted by members using native trees, shrubs and plants, is designed to be a viable part of the campground for years. A drip irrigation system was installed to ensure the hard work that was done will survive for years. Kudos to the group for helping make our area beautiful, and winning a national award — living proof that hard work and perseverance does indeed pay off.

There will be a summer blood drive in Kooskia on Aug. 14, from 1-6 p.m. at the Valley Bible Church on Main Street. Must have I.D. Eat a good meal leading up to the donation and drink plenty of water. Call Madison Fisher at 451-5876 to schedule or with questions.
