The Salmon River Art Guild announces its second annual March Miniature Madness Show Saturday, March 21, at Hoot’s Café just south of White Bird. They will once again have a very special show and sale of miniature artwork for less than $50. The first March Miniature Madness Show was such a success, the guild decided to “go for it” once again.

All paperwork needs to be completed and submitted to the Clerk by March 20. Thank you for your interest and support.

The Central Idaho Rodeo Association, a family-oriented rodeo with events for ages from kids to grandparents, is looking for new members. It is a great place for kids to learn riding their own horses.
