Next Monday we will have a lot of children out and about for the Halloween festivities. Kamiah schools close to let the children have a costume contest and trick or treat downtown. This all begins around 3 p.m., and lasts a couple of hours, so be careful when you drive, dark costumes could cause an accident. This is a fun time for the kids, adults and merchants, be sure and dress your child in costume and enjoy the fun. Many of the local clubs, groups and churches are having a party, check in your area to see if there is a party near you. There is one, a haunted house, Oct. 29 through 31, from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m., located at the Esther Spur in Kooskia to benefit Kooskia’s Little Girls Basketball. There is a charge of $5.
Recycle on Saturday at the recycling facility over the bridge near where the old pole yard was; 10 a.m. until noon. You now have a place to recycle cardboard, office paper, plastics, tin and aluminum cans. Ask at the recycle site or call 983-2843 for additional information.
Kooskia has a couple of new additions to the park, thanks to a grant written by Joy Lee, the Idaho Community Foundation, and donations from Freedom Northwest Credit Union and Cloninger’s Clearwater Valley Harvest Foods. The city purchased a maypole, and a wooden train, built by Dave Roberson of Kamiah, and is now available for younger children to ride on. It will make a fun addition to the park.
What’s happening: Farmers/Flea Market at Long Camp RV Park, on Saturdays through the end of this month, 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., vendors welcome and no charge for space. Schedule your mammogram at the Kamiah Clinic, 935-2585. Mammograms are by appointment and done on the second Wednesday of each month. Tahoe QRU is still offering free Tai Chi classes at their facility, 7856 Leitch Creek Road, seven miles east of Kooskia on Saturday morning beginning at 9 a.m. Just show up! These are continuing classes for everyone but emphasis is on seniors to help with balance and general good health. If you know or make news, give me a call.
