KOOSKIA/KAMIAH — Kamiah Barbeque Days weekend! This is one of the biggest and best events of our area. Fires all around us but, nothing can stop this.... we pray. There is something for everyone here, including free barbeque. Friday, football game, spaghetti feed, and art show with a reception afterward, teen street dance for the youngsters and for adults, the chamber beer garden opens. Big day Saturday, chuck wagon breakfast, fun run, walk and roll, all school reunion, Kamiah Valley Museum, 21st annual quilt show, at 11 a.m. the parades begin, with the chamber auction beginning at 2 p.m. and free barbeque dinner from 5 until 7 p.m., ending with a street dance and live music 8 p.m. until midnight. At 10 a.m., the Life Center will have services at Riverfront Park. You have to salute the people who work and attend events like this when so much is happening around them. This will be a great way to lighten up a bit and enjoy yourself, if only for a couple of days.

What’s Happening: Tahoe QRU monthly Community Yard Sale will be held on Saturday, Sept. 12; get your stuff together for next week, this is the last sale for them this year.

Clearwater Baptist Church located at 158 Main Street, in Clearwater, will have their bi-monthly luncheon on Wednesday, Sept. 9, for those living in the Clearwater, Harpster, Stites area. They would appreciate a $5 donation for the meal, but you are invited to attend even if you are unable to make a donation. All ages are invited to attend. Meet a neighbor, find a friend.

Long Camp Saturday Farmers’ Market and swap meet located on Highway 12 near mile marker 68, open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bring your vegetables, Idaho arts and crafts, bakery treats, collectibles and yard sale items. For information call Connie, 935-7922. Schedule a mammogram at the Kamiah Clinic, 935-2585. Mammograms are by appointment and are done the second Wednesday of each month.

In Kooskia, recycle on Thursday, 4-6 p.m., Saturdays are still 10 a.m. to noon. The Recycle Center is located across the bridge where the old pole yard was. Be sure to separate items.

The Valley View Church of the Nazarene in Kamiah is hosting a Community Night every Wednesday. Meals will be served at 5:30 p.m. followed by activities in different age groups. Public is invited to attend.

Kamiah and Kooskia Library have several programs for all ages. They stay open with the help of volunteers. If you have a few hours a day or week, get in touch with them and help. Two hours may not seem like much, but it can make a huge impact on the library. School is starting so be sure and watch for children in or near the roadways. If you know or make news give me a call
