Tonya J. Kennedy, MMC of City of Grangeville (clerk), has earned the designation of master municipal clerk (MMC), which is awarded by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC), Inc.
IIMC grants the MMC designation only to those municipal clerks who complete demanding education requirements; and who have a record of significant contributions to their local government, their community and state.
Note that the organization photo on page 2B last week should have stated “Girl Scouts troop 3702 in Grangeville delivered “Troop to Troop” cookies to the Idaho County Veterans Center in Grangeville this week. They will also deliver to the Armory. Pictured are Earl Barnes, Scott Scribner, Ellie Kouril, Chloe Weisz, Callie Weisz and Ben Paul.”
This is a wonderful treat the girls give our local military. Thanks to them! Callie and Chloe are our little neighbor girls whom we love so much, so we were recipients of cookies this year, too. There’s nothing like Girl Scout cookies, but I am glad they only sell them once a year!
Ace Home Center owners Bill and Karin Vetter are repairing/rebuilding the lawn center to make it a more retail friendly, shoppable space for bulky seasonal items.
They said they owe a “huge thank you” to Dallas Neumann for his help with this endeavor! Dallas is Karin’s brother-in-law.
