Volunteers are needed to help run the concession stand for high school and elementary school basketball games Contact Rhonda Damon or Tracie Pottenger to let them know when you can help. Thanks so much for wanting to help our kids and our schools.
“Congratulations to Everlee Akins, Kingston Ford, and Charlee Hollon for being selected as winners in the Riggins Post Office Christmas Coloring Contest. It was a tough decision but these kids did an amazing job! Special thanks go to our awesome donors: Summerville’s, Salmon River Inn, Pine Tree Credit Union, Tourist Trap Consignment and Gift Shop, and Frank and Marlene Mignerey. Without these incredible supporters, this event would not be possible. Thank you for all the wonderful coloring pages that decorated my office during the Christmas season.” ~Postmaster, Lori Schmidt.
