WHITE BIRD — The First Annual O.C. Abbott Memorial Golf Tournament will be held Saturday, Sept. 18 at the Grangeville Golf Course. The tournament is to honor OC as a longtime White Bird resident who was very active in our community and in the American Legion White Bird Post #152. The proceeds from the tournament will go to support the work of the same American Legion Post. OC had some underlying medical issues and when he contracted Covid-19, it took him last year. His wife, Maggie, is still very active and a great asset to our community. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. and tee off is at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start. The cost is $100 for green fees, lunch and prizes. The two grand prizes are great, so look for the posters around town and get signed up. For information or to preregister call Walt Lindsey 208-404-8571 or Maggie Abbott 208-507-1777.
