COTTONWOOD — Congratulations to Tony Jentges who was grand marshal for the 4th of July celebration in Greencreek this year. He did a “grand” job! New this year to the event was the Old Time Fiddlers. We enjoyed listening to them. A newcomer to Greencreek, Gary Detrick, was instrumental in getting them here. Also added to the event this year was the presentation of Quilts of Valor to three veterans from Greencreek. Herb Stubbers, U.S. Navy; Lloyd Nuxoll, Army National Guard; and Richard Nuxoll, U.S. Army, all received quilts. They were designed and machine quilted by a local group of ladies from the Cottonwood area known as the Camas Prairie Quilts of Valor Group. These talented ladies have distributed 24 quilts to people in this local community in the last three months. They are always in need of donations of money or fabric to keep this project going. They did a beautiful job on the quilts. The goal is for all veterans to have a quilt.
The Knights of Columbus breakfast will be at the KC Hall on Sunday, July 12. So you can go out for breakfast and dinner, and not have to cook.
