Last weekend marked the first annual Riggins Salmon Run with more than 130 brave souls participating in the race and many volunteers making it work! Big shout out to Mariah Crump, Matt Laine, Linnaea Hinton, Rachel Taylor-Diaz, Hannah McClure, Brittany McDermott and all the other volunteers as well as the Salmon River Chamber of Commerce for putting on such an awesome event! “What an awesome experience,” “What a rush crossing that finish line,” and “Can’t wait for next year” were just a few of the many comments made after the Riggins Salmon Run last Saturday. Mariah Crump, lead organizer, said, “It was a perfect day! Seeing so many smiling faces cross that finish line made my year!” And what a year it was for Mariah and her helpers getting this event to be the success it was! “A dream come true — daydreaming for one year and planning for another year! Over the moon exciting! Thank you runners/walkers, Riggins, volunteers, race committee, and a special thank you to my husband and son!” exclaimed Mariah. There will be more details in next week’s paper as all the details were not available to me at press time.

Jerry Holland’s life celebration was a precious service officiated by his children at the Salmon River Community Church. It was a touching and loving tribute to their dad and to their family. Jerry’s children did the entire service. Joshua and Jerry, or JT as we knew him, did the obituary, eulogy, message and opening and closing prayers; five of his six adult children sang “The Old Rugged Cross” as requested by their father; his three daughters, Dena, Shara and Lurene each shared poems or stories of their dad as did two other close friends; Dena sang “How Great Thou Art” as a solo following a wonderful slide show of Jerry’s life with his family, friends and work. Interment was held at the John Day Cemetery with a dinner for family and friends at the Salmon River Community Church.
