Riggins News: Quilters’ craft show, auction set for Oct. 27

Quote of the week: “Grief never ends…but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith. It is the price of love.” The first Riggins Oktoberfest will be Saturday, Oct. 20, at 100 S Main Street at Rants and Raves Taphouse and Saloon from 3-7 p.m. There will be a live band, a costume contest with prizes, and a barbecue … all family friendly.

Riggins News: Fire department seeks local volunteers

Quote of the week: “If we could spread love as quickly as we spread hate and negativity, what an amazing world we would live in.” This is my October challenge to you…spread love! Fire Prevention Week is this week, Oct. 7-13. Special thanks to our Salmon River volunteer firefighters Roger Rashok, Randy Spickelmire, Donnie Clay, Dave Olson, Jonny Wilson, and Jeff Joyce-Chief. Look, listen, learn, and be aware…fire can happen anywhere. Look for places fire could happen and address the problem. Listen to know the sound of the smoke alarm. Learn two ways out of every room. Besides serving on the Fire Department and being available for fire alls, these guys also go above and beyond to respond to ambulance calls to help when needed. Kuddos to you for your dedication to our community. More fire department volunteers are needed. This takes dedication and training to become a firefighter.

Riggins News: Salmon Run is this weekend

My quote of 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.” I saw lots of this kindness last week in the 4-H/FFA barns in Montana at Beaverhead County Fair.

Riggins News: Free rafting event on tap for this Friday

My quote of the week is again from me with an addition: “I did ride in a convertible…a 1963 Red Corvette convertible in the Idaho County Fair Parade. (I had several people who were not at the parade ask why I didn’t get a convertible…well, I just didn’t mention that part last week.) What a grand week at the Idaho County Fair as the 2018 Grand Marshal.”
