KOOSKIA / KAMIAH The Addict’s Mom Club will be participating in the nationwide campaign called Lights of Hope, 2016. On Sept. 10, 5 p.m. at Wa-A’Yas Community Center in Kamiah, candles will be lit and burn as a beacon of hope for those who have had drugs touch their lives. More than 22 million people nationwide are addicted to drugs and the carnage they bring to their families is immeasurable. If you know anyone battling addiction or have a family member or friend using drugs, take them to this event so they can see firsthand the misery they cause when they use drugs, and hopefully get help. If you are considering doing drugs, don’t! Life is too short to waste it rotting your brain. Get high on life.
If you enjoy the performances put on by the Valley Singers around the holidays, you might consider joining their group. They need singers and bell ringers and everyone can participate. No experience necessary, but is appreciated. If you were ever a member of a group such as this, consider calling and joining. If you have questions or need additional information call Doug Warrington 935-0822.
