WHITE BIRD We’re officially headed into winter. The clocks have turned back, the ghosts have gone, the leaves are falling and we’re thankful for the unknown blessings that are on the way.
There was a great turnout at the Silver Dollar for the Halloween party. For those of us who missed it, you can always go on Facebook and see pictures, because what happened yesterday will be on Facebook today.
November brings family and friends together for the annual Rebekah’s turkey dinner and bingo. This year it will be held on Nov. 15. Bingo starts at 10 a.m. and dinner begins at noon. I know we all look forward to this every year and it’s just around the corner.
The White Bird Chamber is busy working for your community. Right now they are working on a “White Bird Yellow Pages.” This would be a listing of all White Bird area emergency numbers and public buildings. Any new business interested in being in the listing, contact Barbara Lowe at 839-2444. There will be a White Bird Chamber of Commerce Meet and Greet, Nov. 16 at 6 p.m., at Hoot’s Café. This meeting will involve going over the yellow pages, what the chamber is about and how they support our local businesses and community. Everyone is invited to come and see what’s happening.
Mobile Food Bank in town
WHITE BIRD — The mobile food bank will be in town tomorrow. Any volunteers are greatly appreciated and should be at the school by 11:30 a.m. Food pickup this week will be at 1 p.m. We are moving the time up because for some reason, people think they need to show up early. There’s enough food for everyone, and showing up early only complicates things, so please don’t. Also, when you come to get food, enter from the north entrance, stay in your car, wait in line and we’ll just move you on through one car at a time. It’s taken us a few times to get this organized, but every month it goes smoother. We’re learning. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this possible for our community. If you need food delivered, call me at 839-2234.
Two crimson maple trees were planted in front of the Sacred Heart Church. One of them is in memory of Neva Shuck who was a founding member of the church. The other one is in memory of Craig Dufur, from Grangeville who loved attending Mass at the church.
The next park and recreation district meeting will be held Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. If you want to be a part of our new community center activities, if you have ideas, or if you just want to know what’s going on, you need to show up at the meetings. We saved this property for you, now it’s up to all of us to turn it into something great!
The cribbage tournament at the Silver Dollar last week brought in 20 players. Pat won first and Smiley won second. Join in next week, Saturday at 2 p.m.
