— I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. Now, we look toward to fall and the activities that come with it: woodcutting, hunting, the sights of the changing colors and, of course, the holidays. Once again, our little town will come alive with various activities. Many will need help so get in contact with someone if you are able to help in any way.

The upcoming meetings are: Food Bank pick up will be on Sept. 6 at noon; they are in need of some help, so contact Leah if you are able to be there. WBARD will be meeting on the 10th at 7 p.m., City Council meets at 6 p.m. on the 12th, SRAG meets at 10 a.m. and the chamber will have their meeting at 10:30 a.m. on the 13th.

The next Brown Bag Series at the Idaho County Historical Museum in Grangeville will be on Sept. 12. Programs start at noon every Wednesday. Bring a lunch and enjoy various programs. This one will be on Nez Perce History with James Lawyer doing the presentation.

Upcoming event for September is the Annual Gun Show at Hoot’s Cafe on the 8th and 9th. Saturday starts at 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sunday will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be a small admission charge at the door. Call 208-839-2265 for more details.

Again, the woodcutting/potluck will take place in September, but I do not have a date on this yet. This is an American Legion and community project, so keep watching as I will let you know when and the time.

The annual Chili Cookoff will also be in September and details will follow.

Birthday wishes go out Wayne Whinery, Millie Robinett, Jacob Larson (9th); Katheryn Van Acker, Debbie Johnson, Dale Rosenbaum (10th); Jerry Greer, Suzanna Lowry (12th); Kamie Laurence, Amber Brumley (13th); Jake Johnson, Shilo Storey, David Seyer, Sharon Sickels (14th); and Tiffany Stolberg (15th).

In memory of Lisa (9th), and Glen Wilkens (14th).

Anniversary wishes go out to Tom & Cheryl Cullin, Ryan & Tracye Randall (12th), and Bill & Bonnie Asker (15th).

TidBits: It has now been a little more than two years that I have been writing the White Bird news for the paper and am loving every minute of it. I have had help from e-mails, calls and people personally stopping me on the streets to give me news. I want to thank all of you for keeping me updated on things and events; it’s a great help and I want to keep the community in the loop of what is going on in our little town. Here’s to many more years; keep that information coming in and I will report it for you.
