Pine Tree Community Credit Union in Grangeville and Riggins will celebrate International Credit Union Day Thursday, Oct. 17. Stop by PTCCU to say hi and have some refreshments. P.S. Did you know PTCCU has 3,929 members?!
Speaking of PTCCU, it’s time for the annual food bank cash drive starting Oct. 14 and running through Dec. 20. For every $1 donated, PTCCU will match $1, up to $1,000. This will help support families in our community.
Mayors Pepper Harman of Cottonwood and Betty Heater of Kamiah are among 77 participating in the sixth annual Mayor’s Walking Challenge from the Blue Cross for Idaho Foundation for Health.
A mayor who averages at least 10,000 steps a day in October will earn $1,000 for their community to spend on school or community projects, or promote physical activity or healthy foods.
