— Don’t blink – the sun will go away! It was really nice to see it for more than a day or two.

With that, be on the watch for the snakes as they are out and the rattlers are on the strike. Remember that the young ones are more poisonous than the older ones. Be careful with the animals as ticks are being found also.

As we near the end of May, that brings on several things for the coming of summer. Schools will be ending, with graduations, so be ever watchful. Be responsible and most of all be safe. Memorial Day is coming up and it also starts the first long holiday of the season. Enjoy, but please be smart!

There are no meetings this week, but I do want to run some upcoming events for everyone again.

May 29 is Memorial Day. The cemetery has been trimmed and mowed by volunteers and it really looks great from the highway. Thanks to all!

The American Legion Post No. 152, along with the Rebekahs will be placing flags on all of the veterans’ stones at White Bird and Slate Creek cemeteries. This takes place on Friday, May 26, at 1 p.m.

On Monday, May 29, the public is welcomed to join in paying respect and remembrance of the sacrifices that this nation’s veterans have made to defend our rights and make this country free. This starts at the White Bird Cemetery at 11 a.m., and then at noon you are asked to join them at the White Bird City Park for the ceremony there, along with Bob Senter, Earl McCool, Warren McConnell, Matt C. Wheeler and Ural Duane Arnhart all receiving their quilts of Valor. Pie will be offered by the Rebekahs after the ceremony.

The Salmon River Art Guild will be having their annual Art Show and Sale June 17 at the IOOF Hall. Admission is Free from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pacific time.

Have you thought about Adventure Idaho “Living the Good Life” and considering doing something for the parade, it’s not too late. You can enter by contacting Danielle at 839-2457, or e-mail her at blondechica2262 @ Get your thinking cap on and let’s have some fun with this as there is a variety of things you can do with this theme!

The city is looking for help setting up all the stuff for White Bird Days, so if you can spare an hour or two, come on down and lend a hand.

Birthdays for the end of May are Bettie Cox, Del Wadsworth, Joe Anderson, and Justin Meacham. In Memory of LaVonne Wright, and Alvin Blankenship.

Anniversary wishes go out to Don and Wilma Erne, Blanie and Jacki Sandoval and Frank and Marlene Mignerey.

Everyone have a wonderful and safe weekend and then I will be letting you know what everyone has planned for White Bird Days.
