WHITE BIRD — White Bird Days is right around the corner. It’s time to start thinking about those parade floats and everything else that we need to get organized. I’ve heard from many different people that they would like to see the family games moved back to the school, or should I say our new park. That would be great. We used to have so much fun back in the day. We are always in need of volunteers, so if you would like to help out in any way, let someone know.
A great big thank you to the Rebekahs for cooking us such a wonderful meal last Saturday. I think it gets better every year! There were just a couple yard sales in town, because there was so much going on in all the towns around us. It was still a beautiful weekend and it was good to see everyone out and about.
Mother’s Day is this Sunday. Lonnie’s corner deli is serving up a special Mother’s Day dinner. There will be flatiron steak and tequila/lime grilled prawns for $19.95. Reservations are not required, but recommended so, to make reservations, call Steve at 315-7050.
Don’t forget about your local gift store, Canyon House. There are all kinds of new gift items in stock that are perfect for Mom. You can also find a unique gift at the White Bird Antique Store! Make sure and let your mom know you appreciate her.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you beautiful moms out there who have the toughest job on the planet. Without you, we wouldn’t exist!
Happy birthday this week to: Brandi Mundt, Brian Yoakum, Ryan Johnson, John Bashaw, Gladine Gortsema, Philip Liggins, Matt Dewey, Vade Holes, Rita Henderson-Mundt, Ruth Blair, David Fehrenkamp, Kami Miller, Windy Hickman, Jamie Gennis, Tyler Buss, Ryan Meachum, JJ Reidhead, Kasey Laurence and Joann Hueth.
This picture was taken by Erica Booze in her parents, Richard and Terry Eller’s front yard. I always know when summer is here in White Bird by a few welcomed things and some not so welcome! Not welcome you say? The running noses that are brought on by the wonderful smell of the lilacs in bloom and the fresh cut grass! The more welcomed things are the sight of the tulips, daffodils and other beautiful flowers in bloom. But the most welcomed sight is the return of the hummingbirds! This little guy has a reddish body and orange color changing neck and is just beautiful. The deer eating in the background, the Salmon River rounding the bend and running under the bridge, and the storm rolling over Bufford Flats just made the picture extra special! Happy summer, everyone!
