Representing some of the regional agencies who benefitted from the Volunteer Fireman’s Ball and Auction held in White Bird on Feb. 14 were (L-R) Jeff Joyce (City of Riggins, Salmon River Rural Fire Department), Barbara Lowe (White Bird Fire Department) and Annelle Urbahn (Grangeville Volunteer Fire Department). The ball was held at Hoot’s Café and was sponsored by the White Bird Chamber of Commerce. In all, $6,000 was raised with $1,500 going to each department. Many volunteers throughout the county contributed to the event.
WHITE BIRD — The Fireman’s Dance and Auction was a huge success. There was standing room only and everyone had a good time. They say you can’t squeeze blood out of a turnip, but apparently you can squeeze money out of empty pockets, because we raised more than $6,000. When it was all said and done, the White Bird Chamber got to present a $1,500 check to each local fire department. That’s just amazing. Everyone involved, those who organize, those who entertain, those who donate, all deserve a great big thank you. You are the people who make living in nowhere Idaho, a blessing.
