Last weekend Richard (Richie) Brockamp and John Terhaar received Quilts of Valor made by their Duman nieces in Idaho. Both men live in Corvallis, Oregon, but both were brothers-in-law of Alfred, Dominic and John Duman. We want them to know how much we appreciate their service to our country. (Richie) Brockamp served in the Army during the Korean War. John Terhaar served in the Army Air Corps during WW2 in the Pacific islands. They both had some stories that were quite interesting. The quilts were delivered to them by Bonnie Gehring and Virgil and Donna Wassmuth.

All ages and eras of car or pickup enthusiasts are invited to participate in an 80-mile cruise beginning on Main Street in Kamiah at 11 a.m. with stops in Kooskia, Grangeville, Cottonwood, Craigmont and ending in Nezperce City park for a “picnic” of Lions burgers and car showing.
