A good time was had celebrating what would have been Martin Nuxoll’s 100th birthday.
The day started with a family golf tournament at Grangeville Golf Club. Wine and bacon were enjoyed by the golfers before they got too interested in trying to hit that little white ball. Everybody won that day.
Then it was up to the Cottonwood Butte property of Roy and Felix. The perfect hosts (thanks Roy and Helen) had the place all prepared for the party. With the help of many, a pig and potatoes were roasted in a pit. Along with the excellent pig, a potluck was enjoyed. As a special event, all got to attend a Mass celebrated by Father Reuber.
Visiting, picture taking, horseshoes and volleyball were enjoyed by many. About 155 attended.
Family members came from Nebraska, Ohio, Illinois, Texas, Washington, Oregon, Chile, Mexico, Louisiana, Washington D.C. and from many parts of Idaho. 
Unable to attend was Carol Williams of Arizona. A brother, Fred, died in 1990.

Karol Holthaus and Elaine Sonnen Of the Lewis SCD with the grant award check to help local schools, including Summit, participate in the Hatchery in the Classroom project. LSCD was awarded $6750.00 to purchase four aquariums and equipment for local schools to participate in “Hatchery in the Classroom”. Students from Highland, Nezperce, Kamiah, and Summit Academy will learn about the life cycle of steelhead or salmon. Dworshak Fish Hatchery will deliver steelhead or salmon eggs to the schools to be raised from egg to fry. The students will do daily monitoring, feeding, cleaning and general care of the fish. In the spring of the year the steelhead or salmon fry will be released in one of our local streams.
