COTTONWOOD It looks like fall is here, time to get your snow tires on. The calves are weaned and are doing very well. It isn’t even too noisy around here. It is time to clean out your garden if you have not done it yet. I have to bring in all my garden statues. The recent rains have been nice and it is starting to get cold at night. It is also time to get your sauerkraut in the crock. The neighbors got together and we did 117 pounds of cabbage yesterday. Come by for a taste in two weeks. Johanna Stubbers was the rookie this year. But she learns fast!
The Cottonwood Credit Union took first place in the Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce Scarecrow Decoration Contest. Second place went to Arnzen Drug. Congratulations to both businesses.
The Assumption Parish dinner and bazaar was a big success last Sunday. Those folks really know how to put on a dinner.
Congratulations to the Prairie football team for their second straight White Pine League Division 1 championship and their fourth win in eight years. The Lady Pirates also won their district championship game for the second straight year. Way to go, Pirates.
The Cottonwood School District will present a program for veterans on Wednesday, Nov. 11, at 10 a.m. in the Prairie Elementary gym. All veterans and their families are invited as well as anyone interested. There will be a slide show to honor the veterans. If you would like to add to the slide show, send a picture of your veteran. Thank you, veterans – for freedom in the U.S.A.!
My aunt and uncle, Casey and Rich Brockamp, are celebrating 65 years together on Nov. 7. If you would like to send them a card, their address is: 2655 NW Highland Drive Space 20, Corvallis, OR 97330. Many of you know them as she used to live in the area.
If I miss an item for the area news, it is because you did not send it to me. I appreciate those who do send items from time to time.
