Firefighters in the Elk City Days parade 2017.
As of Tuesday, August 22, 2017
ELK CITY It’s that time of year to clean out the garage, closets, cupboards, drawers … and trade your treasures for cash! Come up to the airport with your treasures, setup a table, bring some chairs, erect a canopy and sell those treasures at the Community Yard Sale on Saturday, Aug. 26. Set up time is from 7 to 9 a.m. The sale goes from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; no early birds. There is no charge for space. Call Debbie Taylor at 208-842-2494 if you plan on participating to reserve your space.
Images of Elk City Days had to include those who go “Into the Woods” to fight fires. Every year they put their lives on the line and, unfortunately, every year we lose some of them. Be sure the keep them in your prayers.
Speaking of wildland fires, you might find a couple of books on the 1910 fire interesting – one is called the Big Burn by Timothy Egan, the other is The Year of the Fires by Stephen Pyne.
