It was really nice to walk up to the Grangeville High School track meet last Tuesday, April 19, on a beautiful afternoon and see kids practicing tennis, a baseball game in progress, and then a nice, newly refurbished track. Thanks to all the community volunteers who helped the meet run smoothly, and a big thanks to the coaches, especially Naomi Finnegan who worked so hard to coordinate all the volunteers. It was great to see so many people come out and cheer for their kids in our own little sports complex area.

I was able to attend the Syringa Thrift Store volunteer appreciation dinner last week at The Gallery. The food was fabulous (My favorite? A bacon-wrapped date. Yum!) The GHS Jazz Band played and let me tell you, they are excellent. (Want to hear them? April 30 at the Nazarene Church or May 4 at the GHS concert.) The best part of the evening, however, was the good company. I sat by retired GHS teacher Chris Agee (still one of Avery’s favorite people ever!) and we had a great visit. Lots of wonderful people there and thrift store manager Kristi Soltman Brooks did a great job organizing the event.
It was a wet weekend at the Asotin fair, parade and rodeo. I got soaked during the parade but got some nice pics of all the royalty girls representing Idaho County: Border Days, Riggins Rodeo, White Bird Rodeo, Triple Bar Drill, Cottonwood Riding Club and CVRA Rodeo. They all looked great!
