COTTONWOOD — The sun is shining and the birds are chirping as I write this morning. It looks like spring out there. But I doubt if winter is over yet. But it is a good time to start planning how you want your yard to look this summer.

Keep in mind the St. Mary’s/Holy Cross dinner Sunday, Feb. 8, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Keuterville Hall. Adults - $9; grades first through sixth - $4; kindergarten and preschool – free. This is a fund-raiser for the Keuterville church, which was the first Catholic Church on the Camas Prairie. Initially the church was a Jesuit mission called St. Peter’s, built in 1885-1886. Through a series of three different buildings, the name was changed to Holy Cross. The church that stands today was built in 1911. Support of this dinner will help maintain this charming and nostalgic structure. Keuterville church and the surrounding area are hidden treasures in the rich history of Idaho County. Your reward is a scrumptious homemade dinner.

The 1965 graduating class of St. Gertrude’s Academy is planning their 50-year reunion for this summer on June 27 at the Keuterville Pub & Grub. They are looking for addresses for lost classmates. If any families can give information on their whereabouts, contact Donna Wassmuth at 962-3561 or

It’s time for 4-H clubs to start having meetings for the new year. Keuterville Livestock 4-H club invites new members to come to their first meeting on Feb. 2, at 7 p.m. at the Keuterville Hall. Other clubs will be starting also. If you are interested in joining, check with your friends and find a club that suits you.

Last chance to order chili and cinnamon rolls for Super Bowl Sunday! The Haiti team will deliver homemade chili and homemade cinnamon rolls to your door on Feb. 1. Orders must be placed before Jan. 30. Call Debbie at the parish office at 962-3214 to order.

For Karen Kingsbury fans there is a new book at the Prairie Community Library for you. The title is “Angels Walking.” It is a very touching story about angels that are assigned to certain jobs here on earth to help people when needed. Of course, they are in the right place at the right time to get their job done.
