On November 10, our Idaho County Fair Queen Sarah Baune, 1st Princess Merannda Chaffee and 2nd Princess Halee Hill took their moms on a road trip to the Boise Towne Square Mall to look for royalty dresses for their upcoming parades in 2011. As you can see in the photo the girls were having a lot of fun trying on their new dresses with lots of chit-chat and oohs and aahs. The girls finally made a decision on the most magical dress they could find. We are very proud of these young women for who they are and for the great example they are setting for the young girls across Idaho County. A couple upcoming events that they will participate in are the 3rd Annual Tree Lighting of Pioneer Park “Winter Magic” in Grangeville and the Cottonwood Christmas Parade. Please come support your Idaho County Royalty.

Summit Academy’s 1st and 2nd graders are all smiles standing next to their craft and food booth they are working in front of the school gymnasium. “Would you like a muffin to go with your hot chocolate or coffee?” they ask as they collect the money and hand out the treats. Coffee and hot cocoa along with muffins, cookies and an assortment of other treats are offered as part of their fundraising efforts in making Thanksgiving baskets for people in our community.
