WHITE BIRD With an early deadline this will a short column this week. I mostly have reminders for all.
July dates: 6th is the food bank, 10th is WBARD Mtg. at 7 p.m., city council meeting is on the 12th at 6 p.m., with the chamber at 10:30 a.m., and the SRAG is at 10 a.m. on the 13th.
Another reminder is the library community calendar. They are busy getting this ready for 2018 with the theme of western cowboys. They are asking for any updates on the calendar or if you have dropped someone off of it – they need to know! This is a major fund-raiser for them, so let’s help keep it updated.
I received this e-mail and was asked to pass it along. The Idaho County Republican Central Committee would like to have a comment that the White Bird community does not have a precinct committee person on the Central Committee. If anyone is interested in serving in this position, please contact Jon Menough, chairman at 983-4392 and attend the next meeting on July 20, at 6 p.m., in the Super 8 Motel in Grangeville.
Birthdays for this week are Missy Palmquist, Cameron Bashaw, Marilyn Giddings, Jackson Randal Howard, Chad Lowe, Cheryl Cullin, Joseph Galbreth, Buzz Wright, Bob McNight, Joyce Wilson, Alexandra Fanning, Lara Lowry, John Brown, Alice Johnson, Gen Keas, Billy Cox, Sandy Dixon, Gabriel Laurence, and Kyle Freund. In Memory of Jerry McManus.
Anniversary wishes go out to Gary & Jessica Boone, and Shaun & Laree Bass.
TidBits: White Bird Catholic Church, previous to the building of the church, services were held in Mr. Glatigny’s home. The church was built with Glatigny’s money and designed by Donald Morrison, a nephew of Mrs. Glatigny. It was dedicated in 1922.
Banner Ridge School was located near the forks of Banner Ridge Road and Skookumchuck Creek on the edge of the deep canyon of Baker Gulch. Among teachers at Banner Ridge School were Kathryn Bentz, Mrs. Myrtle Hagen (1931-32). In 1935 Banner School combined with White Bird School and then opened again for two years with Ruth Young as the teacher. After school closed, Bill Rider moved the building onto his ranch (present day Jack Bailey property) where it is being used as a shop.
