Public Access to our National Forests is a long standing tradition for the residents of Idaho County.  The Forest Travel Planners goal is to preserve that age old privilege and protect the forest resources for many years to come.  Pictured here are the late John Jenny and the late Urban Riener, in the 1950s on the USFS Road between Adams Ranger Station and  Little Slate Creek.

On Saturday, September 11, the St. Gertrude’s Academy (SGA) Class of 1960 joined the Sisters for dinner to celebrate their 50-year reunion. The 26 graduates had the opportunity to visit with former teacher Sister Catherine Manderfeld and Sister Petronilla Lieser, who worked in the cafeteria when they were at SGA. “I am thrilled to have so many join us,” said Sister Angela Uhlorn, the SGA graduate liaison. She took the group on a tour of the chapel and the high school, where they looked at their class pictures and shared memories. “They just kept visiting!” remarked Sister Angela. The reunion began the night before with a dinner at Ernie’s Steakhouse in Grangeville. The Class of 60 reunion follows the recent Class of 70 reunion on July 30-31. Shown is the St. Gertrude’s Academy Class of 1960 gathering in the Monastery dining room. Click on the photo for a larger view.
