My quote for the week: “Always be kind. If you see someone falling behind, walk beside them. If someone is being ignored, find a way to include them. If someone has been knocked down, lift them up. Always remind people of their worth. Be who you needed when you were going through hard times. Just one small act of kindness could mean the world to someone.” Wow! THIS quote really spoke to me Sunday afternoon as I helped a family in need.

Bingo for July will be tonight, Wednesday, July 11, at 6:30 p.m., at the Riggins Community Center. Everyone 18 and older is invited to join the fun and help raise funds for the Senior Citizen Transit Bus.
