ACE Home Center in Grangeville hosted its JD Power Tour and customer appreciation day Friday, Feb. 10. “We would like to thank everyone who came and participated and also say thanks to everyone who baked, shopped and/or donated to the A.R.F. fund-raiser,” said ACE owners Bill and Karin Vetter. “Between the bucket sale and bake sale on Friday, we raised more than $500 to help with fund-raising efforts toward building a local animal shelter.” At right, Veterinarian Dr. Kim Wolfrum is pictured with the A.R.F. bake sale items as she assisted with the fund-raising efforts.

Most people have heard, and letters have been sent to patients, that Dr. Danny Griffis has resigned as a physician at Syringa Hospital and Clinics. He has been an asset to the hospital and community and we are sad to see him go. However, family does come first and he and Jen and their family need more of his time, so we wish him blessings with all his future endeavors.
It’s a season of changes at Syringa. Soon, CEO Joe Cladouhos will retire, and board vacancies will be filled. In addition, Syringa has a signed agreement to affiliate with Kootenai Hospital District. (Look for more information on this in next week’s paper).
