— We got a little taste of heaven Saturday night at the Summit Academy Mystery night. The food was heavenly and the entertainment was outstanding! Barbara Flerchinger was the lucky winner of the $10,000 prize.

There will be a craft show this year after a few years of not having one. It will be at the Hangout in Cottonwood Dec. 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Space is limited so call 962-7787 for a no fee table. Only homemade items. If you are not a crafty person, come by and support our local crafters. It is a good time to get some Christmas shopping done early.

A Public Square Rosary Crusade will take place this Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Cottonwood City Park, beginning at noon, rain or shine. Come and participate. We will meet and walk while praying the rosary. Questions-call Max 507-1058.

The Historical Museum at St. Gertrude’s 17th Annual Lecture Series began last week with a very interesting talk on “Camas Prairie Railroad” by Dr. Marc Entze. He spoke to the largest crowd ever.

This week on Oct. 13 at 7 p.m., Ivar Nelson and Patricia Hart will speak on “The CCC in Idaho: Building Our State/Supporting People in Hard Times.” For 10 years, beginning in the late 1930s, the Civilian Conservation Corps was part of the New Deal programs initiated by the Roosevelt administration to mitigate the impact of the Great Depression. Ivar Nelson and Patricia Hart will explore how CCC brought vitality to Idaho’s economy and society. This should be of interest to many people also as there was a CCC camp located above Kooskia.

All youth grades 9-12 are invited to sign up for their first year preparation for confirmation. Sign-up sheets are in the entrance of the churches. It is a two-year program because of youth scheduling conflicts and the positive outcome of the longer journey. Homeschool parents, contact Father Paul. The first class is Sunday, Oct. 16 at the CEC building.
