On March 11, 14 members of the Big Cedar Homemakers club met at Judy Daugherty’s house with one guest, Lori Counts.
The group chose Sept. 18 as the date of this year’s Navajo Taco Feed. Jo Hinds and Irene Finehout are in charge of entertainment this year. If you would like to participate, contact Irene at 926-4783.
Irene shared a sample letter and information regarding the new helipad at Syringa Hospital in Grangeville. This helipad could result in a 20-minute time saving for any critical patients being life flighted. After group discussion, we decided to send a corporate letter from the group in support of the helipad.
The group had further discussion on painting the Big Cedar Schoolhouse. It was decided that Lynne Anderberg would ask Sean Andrews for his advice on using oil-based paint or stain. She will report back to us at the next meeting.
