— This Sunday, the 28th, there will be the traditional Memorial Day bridge ceremony with flags, gun salute and wreath placed in the American River at noon. Come on out and honor our veterans. Flag bearers should gather at the VFW at 11 a.m. There will be Auxiliary members handing out poppies and flags at the ceremony. Following the ceremony, stew and hot rolls will be served at the Post by the VFW Auxiliary.

Attention: The community is invited to a memorial get-together to remember Farris Cheney on June 3, noon to whenever. It will take place outside at the old Reno Club. There will be a barbecue of prime rib, smoked turkey, hamburgers, and hot dogs. If you would like, bring a salad or dessert. Bring your own beverage and chairs. Call Nolene Banks at 842-2414 or Chris Thompson at 842-2552.

Hikin’ for Healthy Hooters walk happened Thursday after school at 3:30 p.m. The school children, school staff and Elk City residents walked a mile with team captain Becky Hays from Boise (see photo). The walk is a ghost walk as part of the Boise Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and raises moneys for cancer research, mammograms and support for under-insured or patients without insurance, and donates funds toward The Richter House, a place to help cancer patients and their families. Becky gives each child who walks with her a T-shirt and so enjoys coming and walking with the kids.

Speaking of volunteers, I would like to draw your attention to the following: Bob and Debbie Taylor installed new outdoor carpeting on the ramp at the Elk City Medical Clinic; Joe King continues to keep the public rest rooms at the Elk City Park nice and clean.

Speaking of the Elk City Park, if you noticed something different, thank John Stoneking for the donation of the new picnic table.

REACH Club has acquired a spot to collect donated aluminum cans and is working out the details...stay tuned for more information soon!

Meetings: Sew Help Me Quilters.

Birthdays: Kenneth Thompson and Ben Cooke
