WHITE BIRD — It’s October already! That means my favorite holiday is almost here. We can look forward to the Halloween party at the IOOF Hall for the kids and the costume parties at the bars for us bigger kids. Time to start thinking about your costumes and it’s time to get ahold of Darla Brumley and offer to help her out, or throw a few dollars her way to help make the kids’ Halloween party a success. For years and years now, the Brumley family has been the reason our kids have a party. Support them and let them know how much you appreciate them, 839-2205. Thank you, Brumleys!
The chili cookoff was a great success. Thank you to everyone who participated and all of you who showed up to support this fund-raiser. The big winners were first place, Sheryl Clark; second place, Bryan and Barbara Lowe; third place, Rick Alley. A total of $785 was raised for the White Bird Emergency Medical Relief Fund.
