Umpqua Bank employees recently drove a little truck all over Grangeville and gave out free ice-cream sandwiches – I heard it was more than 700! Hope you were a recipient. We at the Free Press were fortunate enough to get some.

Thanks to Flying B Ranch in Kamiah for taking such great care of the Casting for Recovery crew this weekend. All of the women were enamored with Ryan, the young man who’s been a chef at the lodge for a decade. He made a terrific lunch on Sunday of chicken enchiladas, southwestern salad and giant, melt-in-your-mouth peanut butter cookies. Several of the women told me what a “cutie” he was and that they wanted to take him home. Great compliments for the chef!

Shannon Moudy from KLEW was there filming and interviewing too. She is related to the Moudys and Eldridges locally.

Look for more news next week on the CFR event.

I had a nice visit with Barbara Henderson in Grangeville Friday, July 10. She has a beautiful home and we had a great talk over a cold Cherry Coke. It was a nice end to a very busy week.
