CLEARWATER VALLEY The biggest event of Kamiah’s winter social scene is fast approaching. The 41st annual Crab Feed offers three nights of all-you-can-eat crab dinner and entertainment on Jan. 25, 26 and 27th at the American Legion Hall in Kamiah. This year’s theme is Land of the Lost. A rock and roll band called the Kingpins will play Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets cost $30 for Thursday night and $35 for Friday and Saturday. Call 208-935-0200 or stop by the flower shop to buy tickets.
I’ve heard from Lara Smith at CV elementary that plans are under way for the annual Valley Educational Support Team (VEST) fest. This annual event, scheduled for March 10, is a fund-raiser to supplement funds for Clearwater Valley schools. The organizers are looking for donations of homemade or store bought items for the live auction, silent auction and raffle. Last year’s event included dinner, music and dancing as a fun backdrop to fund-raising.
I checked out Lewis and Clark State College’s lifelong learning spring class listing. I found several local (Kamiah and Kooskia) smartphone and computer classes. Lauren Paterson of Muse Media is offering three one-night classes entitled Social Media Savvy, Smart Technology Night and SmartPhone Photography, all taught in Kamiah. The social media class teaches how to use Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and Snapchat. The Smart Technology class helps you use your iPhone, iPad, Samsung and Android devices and how to find and use the hottest apps. The Photography class includes features of your smartphone camera, how to manage photos on your phone, how to edit photos and use of Cloud storage. You need to bring your own device and each class costs $15.
Elijah Zeida is offering a class called Clean your Computer. You can learn how to rid your computer of malware, junk files and fix problems that slow your computer down. It’s a BYOC (bring your own computer) hands-on class, a one-night session for $45. You can register for any of these classes online at lcsc.edu/ce. Lots more classes on a variety of topics are offered in Lewiston, Grangeville and Orofino.
