COTTONWOOD -- Reports from the Cottonwood Summerfest committee say that it was a lot of fun and well-attended.

The parade was amazing, all the fun contests, and kids enjoyed the dunk tank and games. Good job to all who were part of the planning.

It’s almost fair time, Aug. 14 to 17, and there are seven young ladies vying for fair queen. Good luck to all of you. Time to start thinking about what you want to enter in the fair. It’s more fun if you have entries.

It’s also time to register for school. My grandkids can’t wait for school to start.

Local author, Dick Southern, and his co-authors, Pat (Heuett) Van Buren and Philip Rathbun, will have a book signing scheduled on Aug. 4 from noon to 4 p.m., at the home of Don and Donna Southern in downtown Gifford. The two book titles are Halfway Stage Stop: Pioneer Settlement, Gifford, Idaho and Big School On a Hill: School Through The Years, Gifford, Idaho. Mega kudos to you.
