COTTONWOOD Prairie Community Library announces their upcoming fund-raiser, Brats and Brew, on Oct. 21. Mark your calendars now. Tickets are available at the library, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Phone 208-962-3714, 506 King Street, basement of the Cottonwood Community Hall. Advanced ticket price is $25 per person, or $30 per person at the door the evening of Oct. 21. PCL is not supported by your tax dollars, so this fund-raiser is very important to have funds available to keep the library open. We appreciate your continued support for PCL.
Richard Lane is coming back to the tri-parish for a life changing mission Sept. 11-14. Each night the talk begins at 7 p.m. He is a very imaginative speaker who keeps your attention. His talks will chronicle our journey from the dust of our beginnings, through our desert struggle, to Heavenly Glory. If you have never heard him speak, come and see what he has to offer. You will be impressed.
Congratulations to the new Fair Queen Rachel Chmelik and her two princesses, Sierah Poxleitner and Emma Gehring. May you have a fun year.
Did you watch the eclipse? It was fantastic even here at 95 percent. The best part for me was to look at the shadows created by the trees. Each little bit of light shining through the trees created a little moon crescent. See the attached picture. This picture was created by a fir tree.
School will be starting soon. Where did the summer go? We still have smoky skies, but it seems to be a little better than it was. At least it wasn’t smoky on eclipse day. All the pasture land is very dry and sure could use some rain.
