KOOSKIA/KAMIAH — All ages welcome to be part of a Christmas luncheon in Clearwater at the Clearwater Meal Center luncheon at noon on Wednesday, Dec. 17, (being served at the Clearwater Baptist Church). You will enjoy Christmas music beautifully played by Felicia (piano) and Susanna (violin) Seigles. You may even win a door prize and sing a Christmas carol or two. How about being able to get to know Larry and Katrina Foe and their young family who recently relocated to Clearwater from Arizona! Come and join in the fun festivity and freshly prepared food served by cooks Renee Olson and Tish Bedard. All lunches are free - a donation of $5 is appreciated when possible. Meet a neighbor and find a friend. “See You There!”
Harpster activities set
HARPSTER — Harpster area neighbors will be getting together on Fri., Dec. 12, at the community building, to make the popcorn balls for the candy sacks (which will also be made up at that time with peanuts, candy canes and other goodies). They will prepare around 80-100 sacks, that will be given to all the children present after the Christmas program on Dec. 14. Anyone wishing to help with this project come and join in starting at 1 p.m. on Dec. 12. This the prelude to the annual Harpster Christmas program which will be held on Sunday, Dec. 14, at the community building, at 3 p.m. All families are asked to bring cookies to share after the program, and if you would like to sing, play the piano or entertain, talk to our M.C. Alice before the program. After the short program, Santa arrives to talk to each child, and give out the sacks of candy.
Harpster Bingo will not be held in January or February, but it will start up again in March, on the first Wednesday of the month (if weather permits), and I can’t imagine any weather that could stop this fun event.
Emmanuel Baptist Church is proud to present a Christmas cantata, “Christ Was Born For This,” performed by The Whispering Pines Southern Baptist Association Choir, on Dec. 24 (Christmas Eve) at 6 p.m. This will also include a candlelight service and refreshments which will follow the service. All are encouraged to attend and celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
What’s Happening: Schedule a mammogram at the Kamiah Clinic, 935-2585. Mammograms are by appointment and are done the second Wednesday of each month. In Kooskia, recycle on Thursday, from 3:30-5 p.m., Saturdays are still 10 a.m.to noon.
The Recycle Center is located across the bridge where the old pole yard was. Be sure to separate items. Also on Thursday there is free lunch served at the Kamiah Community Presbyterian Church located on the corner of 7th and Hill Street in Kamiah, from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The Valley View Church of the Nazarene in Kamiah is hosting a community night every Wednesday.
