As of Tuesday, April 25, 2017
The farmers are getting anxious to get in the field. Usually by this time some of the planting is done. But the rain is not cooperating. At least the pastures are nice and green. The cows will probably be going out soon. Then I won’t have any baby calves to watch out my window. At least they will be happy to be on green grass.
The Knights of Columbus will have a roadside cleanup this Saturday, April 29. Meet at the KC Hall at 8 a.m. for a mandatory safety briefing. They could use your help and you could get some exercise. A win/win situation. Come out and participate and support our community and our country.
Summit Academy students will be participating in their annual Hike-a-thon on May 11 at Fish Creek Recreation Area on Grangeville Mountain. This is one of their most fun-filled fund-raising events of the year. Depending on the age, students will be hiking between one to five miles. Students will be asking for sponsors for this event.
Summit play is May 4-6

There will be a Rosary Rally at noon on May 13 in honor of the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima. The Blessed Virgin first appeared to three children on this date. We will walk around the outside of St. Mary’s Church while singing songs, praying some litanies, and praying the rosary. Everyone and anyone is invited. It should take about 45 minutes. If it rains, the event will take place inside the church. Max Nuxoll will lead the procession.
