WHITE BIRD Here it is the middle of the month already, and as this writing is coming out. I hope everyone did something a little extra special for their Valentine this year. Even if you didn’t have someone special, I hope you wished everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day.
I didn’t receive the results of the Fireman’s Ball, but will have that for you next week.
The only meetings for this next week is the WBARD on the 12th at 7 p.m. This is opened to the public so go check them out and see what they have to offer. The other meeting is the city council on the 14th at 6 p.m. They have a lot of information to be discussed, so plan to attend.
The chamber held its meeting last Thursday and elected the new officers. They are: President - Danielle Swineford-Lindsey; vice-president Cody Farmer; and Sandy Murphey stepping in as secretary/treasurer. Thanks ladies and we hope to have a great 2018. They have scheduled an open forum community meeting on Thursday, March 8, at the IOOF Hall, 6 p.m. This is for all patrons, community organizations and anyone who is wanting to know about the chamber, they are trying to build it back up and plans are to take it in another direction to help promote the town and what we have to offer. Remember that the 2018 dues are now due, and the invoices will be sent out soon.
The sportsman show in Boise is fast approaching so if you want your business information to be included at this show, take your brochures to Verna at the Canyon House and they will put them on display for you while they are down there. They will be talking about our community and what we can offer visitors and there will be a slide show that will run promoting the businesses and what they are offering as well. This is March 1-4.
