Mega Kudos to the Tri-parish people who donated so generously to the Cottonwood Food Bank these last 40 Days and also throughout the year. It is such a welcome sight to see our shelves full and be able to give everything on our list, plus a few extras. Being a small town and operating strictly from donations shows what a thoughtful, generous little community we have, one to be proud to be part of. Note from the Food Bank Volunteers.

Saint Augustine’s Catholic Center at the University of Idaho is looking for a development director and also a director of music ministry. For information, see For application information, visit or email
