Did you notice the greenhouse that used to be at King’s is now at Grangeville Builders? Stop in and see what they have; and if you haven’t been inside in a while, stop in and see Jody at the front desk or Ken or any of the crew there.

If you do, you will not only see some beautiful plants and gorgeous flowers, but also the friendly face of Amanda Wolfinger Robinson who is helping out at the shop this summer.

This exciting news just in from Gloria Taylor, who heads the Save the Old Opera House (Kooskia) Committee: “The owners of the Opera House have granted the committee a three-month extension on our buy-sell agreement as we have been gaining momentum and people are starting to respond by donating or purchasing shares. This also gives us more time to organize fund-raisers.

The other great news is that Freedom Northwest Credit Union has stepped in to assist and has offered a challenge to us and you: They will match the next 50 shares sold! They feel that if the surrounding area really wants this to be a success, that they will show their support and the credit union will match them! Donation and share forms can be picked up at either Freedom Northwest branch or e-mailed to you by contacting lanefamily1988@gmail.com. Stock purchases or donations can be made at Freedom Northwest Credit Union under Old Opera House Inc. in account No. 21133 or sent to Gloria Taylor at 177 Lee Road, Harpster, ID 83552. Be sure to fill out the form!

So, where are we? Checks for shares are coming in daily. The board of directors is now activated and with them comes additional staffing power! We hope that you have visited our Facebook page, Kooskia Opera House and ‘liked’ it. In addition, there is a Go-Fund-Me set up. Check it out!”
