GRANGEVILLE Looking for something extra to do with those guests during Border Days?
Pick up the Grangeville Turn of the Century Driving Tour pamphlet at the Bicentennial Historical Museum, 305 North College Street, 1 to 5 p.m. July 4, 5 or 6, or at the Idaho County Genealogical Society resource office on North Idaho (by the Methodist church), 1 to 4 p.m., July 4, 5 or 6.
The pamphlet features 15 homes built from 1890-1910, with some photos and short histories included.
Did you know when Border Days Grand Marshal Ernie Robinson’s cows calved this past winter they got 17 sets of twins? Just a couple years back, one of his cows had surviving triplets. Ernie said he is thankful for good animals – including horses and dogs – but, moreover, he is thankful for great family, friends and neighbors who assist on the ranches in so many ways.
Thanks to Grangeville Health and Rehabilitation which is again preparing to place more than 1,500 flags outside of homes and businesses to celebrate the Flag Day and the Fourth of July.
Art in the Park on July 4 will feature a variety of booths and food items – including strawberry shortcake from the United Methodist ladies and “walking tacos” from the Lutherans. I hear the Nazarenes will offer a game booth this year, so be sure to stop by and play. There will be items to buy, things to learn, music by the Old Time Fiddlers and just a plain good time at Pioneer (city) Park.
Did you know Asker’s Harvest Foods has donated eggs for all three days of the Border Days celebration and its Super Egg Toss for the past 10 years? That’s about 22,740 eggs! Wow! Thanks, Asker’s.
The annual Cowboy Breakfast is set for Wednesday through Friday, July 4, 5 and 6.
Sponsored by the Masonic Lodge (Nos. 9 and 87) and held at the Masonic Temple on Grangeville (just off Main Street across from U.S. Bank), the breakfast is set for 6 to 11 a.m. and includes all you can eat sausage, eggs and hot cakes, as well as beverages. An $8 donation per person assists lodges 9 and 87 in a variety of projects, including the provision of local high school scholarships. If you haven’t been to this breakfast, it’s a good time to decide to attend this year. The Masonic Lodge has had a lot of upgrades, but the event is still a time of good food and good visiting.
