— Wasn’t that extra hour of sleep welcome Sunday morning? It is snowing as I write this morning, so I guess winter is here. All those chores that you didn’t get finished you don’t have to do anymore! They will wait until spring.

Summit Academy’s Mystery night was a huge success with the biggest crowd ever. The atmosphere was outstanding, and the decorations were beautiful. A lot of people worked together to make the 20th Anniversary of Mystery Night special. Jana and Mike Frei were the big winners of the $10,000 prize. Summit is very grateful to the sponsors: Sonnen Meats, B&A Performance Auto, Lindsley’s Home Furnishings, Les Schwab Tire Center, Chesky Woodworking, Intermountain Feed and Mercantile, Hoene Hardware and Cottonwood Foods.

Mass for deceased KC members will be Tuesday, Nov. 14, at 6:30 p.m. Father Paul will celebrate Mass for deceased KC members at St. Mary’s Church in Cottonwood. Current members and family members of the deceased are invited and encouraged to attend.

St. Mary’s Catholic Parish in Cottonwood is requesting bids for snow plowing. Plowing would be done on an “on call” basis and the successful bidder will be paid on an hourly basis. Bidder provides his own equipment, fuel, insurance, and materials to do the job.

We would like to have a snowplowing contract worked out before Nov. 13 if possible. Bids accepted until the job is filled.
