 On Saturday, Sept. 15 Troop 638 helped the Knights of Columbus with the fall roadside cleanup. They had 23 bags of garbage plus a lot of larger items that would not fit in the bags. Thank you for helping keep our raods as clean as possible. The more we bag our own trash and not throw it in the ditch, the better. Pictured are Seth Chaffee, Hunter Chaffee, Jared Coppernoll, Kevin Tillinghast, Caleb Butler and Matt Coppernoll. Not pictured but part of the cleanup crew were Greg Nau, Joe Didier, Drew Cochran, Keith and Aleta Coppernoll, Jessica Butler and Shari Chaffee. Photo provided by Shari Chaffee.

Boy Scouts Jared Coppernoll, Hunter Chaffee, Drew Cochran and Seth Chaffee head out into the smoke filled air to start the fall road side cleanup on Highway 95. Another reminder to bag your own trash and please don’t throw any flammable items out your windows. The weather is still very hot and our fields are especially dry. Photo provided by Shari Chaffee.

Thank you to the Grangeville Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for their help in cleaning up the Kindergarten building and the old elementary gym.  Thank you to Jason Rambo who organized the crew and had the suggestion to help out the school in Cottonwood.  The group cleaned, scrubbed, washed windows, trimmed shrumbs, removed fence and painted.  We thank all of them for their help and WOW, they made a difference. Click on the photo for a larger view.
