WHITE BIRD -- Last Saturday morning, Monty and I were headed toward White Bird when a deer ran across the road, fell down, got up, and continued across the highway. All the time, I'm slamming on the brakes! Never hit it and that's not the way I want to go hunting. I have been seeing horns in the rigs, so they are getting something...be careful out there in the woods or the highways, you never know when you'll see something.
The Old-Time Fiddlers will be at Hoot's Cafe, Sept. 27-29. Come and join the fun. Bring your instrument.
The White Bird Bar & Grill will be hosting a nacho bar every Monday night thru the football season. This all starts at kickoff time. They are also having darts.

The days they will be playing will determined by participants and what works for their schedules. Sign up and more information is at the bar.

The chamber is looking for a secretary. If you have time on your hands and like to take minutes, then this is the job for you. Let President Homer Brown know if you would like to take on this project. The Chamber is also taking on revamping the kiosk at the entrance of town. They want to get the businesses involved, repaint and make it a better viewing for the public and tourism. Other projects are in the works with more information to follow.
