It’s three generations of volunteering at Syringa Thrift Store. Pictured (L-R) are Dawn Schoo, her mom Linda Arnzen, and her grandmother, Norma Bruegeman, all of Grangeville. The trio volunteers at Syringa Thrift Store donating their time on a consistent weekly basis. “This is a great example of instilling philanthropy in family values through the generations,” said store manager Kristi Brooks. “The giving of one’s time for a greater cause.”

Many in the community — especially if you currently have kids in the Grangeville schools — have heard this is music teacher Kathy Stefani’s last year at Grangeville. She has helped build a wonderful music program in Grangeville and will be greatly missed. She will, however, get to spend more time with her mother and that’s definitely important. We wish her well.
