Corral Dust: Border Days news from the Ole' Cowpoke

— Idaho County Genealogy Resource Center will be closed on July 4, but will remain at regular hours (1-4 p.m.) on Thursday and Friday, July 5 and 6. Stop by during Border Days: the center is located in the blue house (just across from the courthouse) at 111 South Idaho Ave.


Don’t forget to stop by the Bicentennial Historical Museum July 4, 5 or 6, 1 to 5 p.m., for a variety of displays.


The Grangeville collection site for Idaho County Recycling will be closed Saturday, July 7, as volunteers will be gathering town recyclables following the Border Days festivities. It will be open again on July 14.


Heard on the street: “I love it when Border Days is close – all the street lines get painted and everything looks so fresh!”


Heard at a Syringa Hospital board meeting: “Border Days is my favorite holiday!”


Note that this year’s Grangeville High School all-class reunion will be held after the 2 p.m. parade on Thursday, July 5, at the Grangeville Gun Club, all at no cost to those attending. Seating is available inside, or bring a chair and enjoy the view outside while seeing old friends and making new ones.


OK, so there was a little mix-up with the number of grandchildren Border Days Grand Marshal Ernie Robinson has. It may have been the visit was so pleasant, numbers became secondary. Anyway, he has 10 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. Wow! What a Robinson legacy. For the record, he is such a nice cowboy! Be sure to say hello to him when he rides his horse through the Border Days parades.


In case you didn’t hear: Asker’s Harvest Foods has donated 22,740 eggs during the past decade for the Super Egg Toss for the past 10 years. Cash and Carry Marketplace has donated approximately 7,500 popsicles following the Kiddies Parade during the past three decades.

Those are just two of the local businesses who have helped make Border Days a fun, family event. Support your local merchants always – but especially during Border Days!


Border Days Royalty tryouts saw two Grangeville High School students Thursday night, June 28. GHS senior Jillian Hausladen, daughter of Renita Lee and Brett Hausladen and GHS junior, Colby Canaday, daughter of Gary and Lisa Canaday, are each vying for queen. The good news is, whoever is not to be queen will be princess and they will have a fantastic, fun-filled, busy year. It’s an awesome experience and responsibility. Good luck, girls. The royalty will be crowned by current queen Micaela Farris and princess Bella Klapprich during the final night of the rodeo, July 6.
