COTTONWOOD -- We had a nice rain over the weekend. It washed away the smoke again. It is really starting to look like fall. We have a huge flock of blackbirds around here and they are getting all my apples, so I better get them picked.
They are still selling raffle tickets for the Ferdinand Parish raffle. Since their dinner is postponed until next year, they are hoping to sell as many raffle tickets as possible, as that will be their only income. For tickets contact Pat 208-507-2633; Marilyn 208-507-1173; or you may pick them up from Seubert Excavators’ office or from the Tri-Parish office. The quilt pictured was made by Jeanne Arnzen as one of the raffle prizes.

A Rosary Rally was held last Saturday for America Needs Fatima at St. Mary’s Church in Cottonwood. There were over 20,000 rallies all over America that day. The intention is to ask Mary to protect our country, state and community from all the evil that is going on in the world. It was also supporting police officers who protect us every day. About 75-80 people participated in the walk or stayed in church while saying the rosary. Even the rain did not stop us from walking through the downtown area. This community has been doing the rally for about 10 years.
