White Bird Crawdad Feed

The American Legion Crawdad Boil in White Bird drew more than 100 people.

The crawdad feed was another success with over 100 people attending. Our new Memorial Park was overflowing with the young and old along with the fun and stories being enjoyed by many. Thanks for the American Legion for sponsoring this well-earned project.

They now have, as of last Saturday, grinded one lane and the highway has been reduced to two lanes. Please use caution when driving and be aware of traffic.

White Bird Bar & Grill (formally Mac's) has made this historic building their new home. The ornate carved wood back bar from the 1800s has an amazing story with an epic journey stopping near Florence, Idaho in a place called Frog Town, but the journey didn't end until it was delivered to White Bird where it found a permanent home.

The bar opened again on June 15, and is now open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Come by for drinks and appetizers. Happy Hour is from 2-4 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, there are ultimate fully loaded Bloody Marys. In memory of the history of Mac's, and all who came before, they are offering the Frogger, a unique drink just like this place. They have gotten it cleaned up, and the grill will be opening soon!

Chad and Denise Clanton of Lewiston

The rodeo raffle winner of the horn mount by Leighton Vander Esch is Chad and Denise Clanton of Lewiston.

The rodeo raffle winner of the horn mount by Leighton Vander Esch was picked up this last Monday. Chad had actually won it, but since his wife Denise is a Dallas Cowboys fan, and knows who Leighton is, he decided to let her have it. They drove up to Grangeville, and since Tuesday (25th) was her birthday, the timing was right. Congratulations Chad and Denise Clanton of Lewiston.
