Taco Feed set for September
BIG CEDAR — Mark your calendar for The Big Cedar Homemakers Club’s major fund-raiser, the annual Taco Feed which will be held Saturday, Sept. 13, at the Big Cedar Schoolhouse east of Kooskia, on Big Cedar Road. Tickets will be available at the door for $5 per person. This event is an annual get together and is always well attended. This year should prove to be especially festive since it is the 100th birthday of the Big Cedar Schoolhouse. The schoolhouse has been nominated for the National Register of Historic Places in Idaho County. This is quite an honor and thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Big Cedar Homemakers, it should be in use for many years. All of us who live in the area, as well as all who attended or know someone who attended this old school, applaud the efforts of this hard-working group. Do come to this event. The food is great and plenty of it. No one leaves hungry and lots of local entertainment. I will have more about this event later.
