CVHS Amateur Radio Club

A new amateur radio club at Clearwater Valley High School is being mentored by the 3 Rivers Amateur Radio Club. The new club meets every Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. in the school library. The first meeting featured an introduction to amateur radio and information on where to study for the license on the Internet. Upcoming meetings will feature reviews of students’ progress toward the exam and presentations on different aspects of amateur radio. When the students are ready, volunteer examiners from the 3 Rivers Amateur Radio Club will conduct the examination at the school.

Future plans include installation of an amateur radio station at the school and participation in various amateur radio events and contests.

Lions add to scholarship fund

GRANGEVILLE — While tuition is more expensive than it used to be, one community organization is growing the scholarships it has traditionally offered. The Grangeville Lions Club will provide a $2,000 scholarship to each of two 2016 graduates.

The Grangeville Lions Club recently released the following statement:

“Grangeville Lions would like to thank our community for continuing support of our annual Christmas tree sales.  The proceeds from tree sales fund Lions Club scholarships that are awarded each year to deserving seniors from Grangeville High School. Last year, GHS graduates Travis Goehring and Kristin Kaschmitter each received a $1,000 scholarship from the Lions Club.”

“Starting in 2016, the scholarship amount will be $2,000, twice as much, because of the higher cost of tuition and because of continuing support from the Grangeville community.”

“Since 1936, the Grangeville Lions Club has been instrumental in supporting area recreational venues that citizens use daily: from Lions Park to the tubing hill, golf course, pool building and football field, little league fields and more.”

“Every April, Lions test all K-8 GEMS and Kooskia students’ sight and hearing. Adults needing assistance with sight and hearing issues may apply for help as well. These community programs are all funded by Lions Burger sales at our trailer on Main Street during Border Days.”

For information about the scholarships, about other Grangeville Lions community service efforts, or about how to join, contact Grangeville Lions Club president Tyler Harrington at 451-4285 or e-mail
