Jeannie Fitch 628-3845

— I do hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day and are enjoying time with family and friends. Many Riggins kids, young and old, are sledding and skiing. Take care while driving in the snowy icy streets and roads, and be safe playing in the snow whether in your own yard or in the mountains or just plain ol’ having winter fun wherever.

Severe weather warnings are in order for Riggins. This week, the weather forecast calls for extremely cold temperatures, expected to be in the high teens with lows hovering between -5 and 0. Make preparations and be safe. Stay inside and keep warm if you do now have to go out and about.

Bingo, sponsored by the Riggins Senior citizens, is tonight, Wednesday, Jan. 4, 6:30 p.m., at the Riggins Community Center for adults 18 and older.

The Two Ladies Shop and the Idaho Banana Co. are undergoing major changes. The Idaho Banana Co. has added on to its shop. Mary Lou now has her flower arrangement prep area in the new addition. There is a new ADA assessable toilet for customers, which has an outside entrance convenient to the gazebo area. New items are in both shops with all new decorations and arrangements throughout. Please stop by and discover your special treasure, a gift, or just pick up some beer and wine.

Secret Santas helped 25 families, which included 48 kiddos, have an amazing Christmas. The Riggins Secret Santas would like to thank everyone who donated money for gifts, those who took a tag from the Giving Tree and purchased gifts, those who helped wrap gifts, and those who prepared the family food boxes. Thanks to our whole Salmon River Canyon for being a community family who jumps in to help when the call goes out…or just does things when things need done regardless of the situation and regardless who knows.

Salmon River High School football and volleyball awards will be held Thursday, Jan. 12, … time and place to be announced soon.

There will be no school Monday, Jan. 16, honoring Martin Luther King Day, so Salmon River school students, teachers, and staff will have a four-day weekend. Enjoy!

Fit and Fall Proof exercise class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays 10-11 a.m., at the Salmon River Community Church in its fellowship hall in the back. Class is open to everyone; it is a very good class for strength and balance.
