WHITE BIRD Here it is almost the end of January already – we just started the New Year, so the months are going to start going by faster. It is staying daylight a little longer, but remember, winter is still here!
No meetings again this week, but we do have some reminders that I need to let everyone know about as by the time this comes out, the events will be fast approaching.
The chamber has put their elections on hold until after the fireman’s ball, but in the meantime they are needing your help as a community. They are looking to fill vice-president, secretary and treasurer positions. So, if you would like to help make a difference in this town, think about taking on one of these positions. They aren’t bad offices to hold and they only meet once a month. The chamber dues are up and if you would like to keep your dues, they are $50/year for businesses and $25/year for individuals. There are some very good perks to being a member, so check them out. Call Cody Farmer at 208-839-2887. If they can’t get enough to continue with this organization, once it’s gone, there is no getting it back.
WBARD will be holding their monthly breakfast this Sunday, Jan. 28, starting at 8 a.m. They will be serving sausage, potatoes, eggs and toast, at no charge, but donations are always welcomed.

TidBits: Here’s some remember when….from 1973:
When hippie meant big in the hips.
A trip involved travel in cars, planes & ships.
When pot was a vessel for cooking things in.
Hooked was what grandmother’s rug may have been.
When fix was a verb that meant mend or repair.
When neat meant well-organized, tidy & clean.
Grass was a ground cover, normally green.
Bread came from the bakery and not from the mint.
When roll meant a bun & rock was a stone.
Hang-up was something you did with the phone.
Methinks that our language is going to pot.
Have a good week everyone!!
