COTTONWOOD I hope all the fathers had a great day Sunday. We spent the day with family and friends in the mountains; our favorite thing to do. Haying is getting started on the prairie. Some farmers were able to get some hay in before the rain. Our family is cutting hay today, so that means I get grandkids all week!
The TriParish Cave Quest vacation Bible school will be hosted by Summit Academy from June 27-30. At Cave Quest kids explore what it means to follow Jesus through dark times. Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play team-work building games, dig into yummy treats and experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures. Cave Quest is for kids entering kindergarten through fourth grade and will run from 9 to 11:30 a.m. each day. Youth in fifth grade up are encouraged to be teen leaders and to come to a teen leader rally Thursday, June 23, 9 a.m., at Summit Academy. Walk-ins are welcome on the first day of VBS, but preregistration is preferred. To register, contact Lisa Riener, 962-7343. Fee is $5 per child or $15 per family to help pay for expenses. For volunteer opportunities contact Alea Wassmuth at 962-2372. Join us as we learn to follow Jesus, the light of the world.
St. Anthony’s Society will again be sponsoring the Fourth of July celebration in Greencreek. Grand marshal this year is Ray Nuxoll. It starts with a flagraising at 7 a.m. followed by breakfast from 7 to 10 a.m. Gary Dietrich informed me that the Old Time Fiddlers will start playing at 8:30 a.m. They played last year and everyone enjoyed it. There will be kid rides and Bingo all day, and in the afternoon, a beer garden, auction and races for the kids. Doug Lustig knows nothing about this, so don’t ask him. It is a good place to bring kids, so come and plan to stay all day. Money raised goes to local charities.
