Jamie Edmondson Elk City 842-2452

Elk City is saddened by the passing of two of our own in the past two weeks. Leo Hansen, a longtime resident and logger and Joe Krzeminski also passed after a short battle with some major health issues. Joe’s memorial will be Friday, Oct. 21, in Grangeville at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. Lynn would like those who knew Joe to “come and bring your Joe stories!” Pray for the family members to experience the comfort of God’s spirit at this time.

Sew Help Me Quilters are having a baked food and quilted items sale on Saturday, Oct. 8, at 9 a.m. It will be held at the Elk City General Store. Get out and get some goodies and support this great group.
