Stop by the United Methodist Church Mondays from about 2 to 9 p.m. where, in the basement, you will find Shirley teaching area dancers, ages 3 on up to adults. Just say hi or sign up for a dance class.

The Eagles will host the Kids Christmas Sale Dec. 10 at the hall in Grangeville. This offers a chance for kids to purchase affordable gifts for their families. If you have new or gently-used items to donate to this sale, you can drop them off at the Free Press and I will take them to the Eagles. No clothes, however, hats and gloves are acceptable. Gift items for men and boys are always needed, too. My girls enjoyed this sale for years and I love to see how excited the kids get doing their own shopping!
A young lady from Grangeville High School, Rose Sherrer, is having a drawing for a quilt. Not just any quilt, but a beautiful double wedding ring quilt made by her mother.

You can support Rose by purchasing raffle tickets which are $2 each or six for $10. Call 451-6321 and leave a message; Rose will get back to you ASAP. The drawing is set to take place just prior to Christmas.
