Just another reminder that Doumecq Highway District is still working on the Rice Creek Road Embankment Removal project. It should be finished by Jan. 24. The road work is being done approximately two miles above the Salmon River Rice Creek Bridge at the Center Canyon / Rice Creek junction. For questions contact road supervisor Tom Cullin at 839-2775.
Don’t forget to make plans for the VFW breakfast at the Cottonwood Community Hall, serving 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., on Jan. 22. The Prairie Quilters will cook and serve the meal, and there will be a quilt presentation at noon. All are welcome. For tickets, contact Shirley Baerlocher or Judy Forsman. Suggested donation is $8 per plate. The proceeds will be used to buy fabric to make Quilts of Valor for our veterans.
There are still tickets available for the St. Anthony’s Society Annual Crab Feed on Jan. 21, at the Greencreek Community Hall. Music will be by “Centerline” which is ’80s rock band. Tickets are $30 per person and they will have pork loin as an alternate choice along with the crab. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., dinner at 6 p.m., and dance at 9 p.m. Call B & A Performance Auto, 962-7755, or Connie Schumacher, 962-3451 days or 962-7781 evenings for tickets. Dance only ticket is $8. This event is sponsored by St. Anthony’s Society and Greencreek Hall. So you can eat out for the whole weekend and not have to cook.
A Hunter Safety class was held at Prairie Elementary School last week with 5th and 6th graders from Summit Academy in attendance also. Eric Wassmuth is the lead instructor with help from a number of other people. Susan Wassmuth retired from teaching the class this year. She has been an instructor for quite a few years. She always had a good style of teaching and was very knowledgeable about the material.
Note to Gary in Greencreek: I admire your Christmas spirit by keeping your Christmas tree in your yard this long. It is very sparkly at night. Did you know that most Christmas trees have limbs on both sides of the trunk? Just something to think about for next year.
