Corral Dust: Wayne James selected as grand marshal


Corral Dust: Border Days news from the Ole' Cowpoke

It’s hard to believe another year has rolled by, but Border Days is again upon us.

This year’s events are set for July 1 through 4 with the rodeo on July 1, 2 and 3, and parades on July 2, 3 and 4. For details stay tuned or go on-line to or check out the Border Days Facebook page.

Do note the parades are July 2 and 3 at 2 p.m., and July 4 at 11 a.m. This is a time change on the Fourth from an earlier announced time.


The 2016 Border Days Grand Marshal was recently announced as none other than local rancher Wayne James. The Free Press will have a story on Wayne in the next few weeks, but in the meantime know he is excited to accept this position.

“I am so honored,” James said last week. “I never dreamed I would be the grand marshal!”


If you have a classic car, start getting it ready. The Camas Prairie Car Club will host a car show Sunday, July 3, at the home of Roy Powell, 215 South Florence Street (next to the Hilltop Café).

Bring cars at 9 a.m., and display to 2 p.m. All cars are welcome. Call Annelle at 983-2333.


The Grangeville High School sixth Annual All Class Reunion will start after the Border Days Parade on Sunday, July 3. Come on out to the Gun Club, see some of your old classmates and meet some new ones. Everyone is invited – spread the word.

For questions: contact Randy Wells, Debbie Koole Carrell or Kirk Lamm.


Grangeville Border Days Royalty Queen Maggie Chmelik and Princess Hailey Russell have been busy representing Border Days throughout the past year. They’ll have some more to say before the event, but for now want you to know the royalty luncheon is set for Monday, July 4, at the Eagles Hall following the parade. Call or text 983-8286 to RSVP.


We’ll end this week with a little who-is-it trivia.

There’s a Border Days committee member who happened to be the first baby born at Syringa Hospital in 1996. Know who he is? We’ll fill you in next week.
