WHITE BIRD -- Fall was here and gone on Sept. 26. Then the snow made an appearance, but isn't supposed to stick around. Mother Nature is playing with us again!

Remember, food pickup will be on Thursday, Oct. 3. If you can help with distribution, let Leah know or Rob Beeson -- they can always use the help.

Upcoming meetings for the first part of October are the city council on Wednesday, Oct. 9, followed by the chamber on Thursday the 10th at 11 a.m. The chamber will be holding a luncheon at Hammer Down with hamburgers and the trimmings. Come have lunch with us, attend the meeting and see what's happening. Holiday ventures will be discussed, and they will be needing help, so if you're a chamber member or just curious as to what you might be able to help with, join us and possibly become a member. They are still looking for a secretary; if anyone is interested in this position, let Homer know.

There is rumor that the volunteer firemen may be putting on a tri-tip dinner later this year? Stay tuned and I will try to find out more on this one.
