Dollars for Scholars,bingo at Norse Hall

VERY BRIEF. Due to technical difficulties, this column will be extremely short this week and I will try to do do a lot more "yakking" next week. I do hope you have all come through the buckets of rain and blustery wind storm that we have had to deal with this past Sunday and Monday. We had three inches of rain out here in West Valley, (so far) so it was not nice.

Those celebrating birthdays this coming week from June 6 thru 12 are: Brenden McClain, Justin Elfers, Elijah Doiron, Matalyn Longtain, Peyton Souvenir, Paige Ferguson, Nicholas Danker, Ryan Helms, Tanner Hoven, Bentley Olson, Sharon LaBerge, Nicholas Danker, Johnnie Peyrollaz, Alec Christiansen, Mark Howie, Colton Reynolds, Andrea Hess and Michaela Sechler.

May you all have a wonderful time on your special day.
