A couple of photos from the first Summer Reading day of the summer held at Prairie Community Library last Thursday, June 19. Photos by Shelley Schlader  See story at left. Click on the photos for larger views. 

In the upper photo Jessica and Andrea Kaschmitter paint an undersea scene mural on one of the walls in the Library. The lower photo shows them with the completed scene. Photos provided by Laurine Nightingale. Click on the photos for larger views. (We have to gray-scale our photos for the print edition  now and accidently saved the gray-scale version over the original of the lower photo.)

Former Cottonwood resident Frank “Bud” Schober awaits his lunch at the Veterans Home in Lewiston. Also pictured, volunteers Aurelia Bruno and Michelle Conroy of the Civil Air Patrol. “Every year the Veterans of Foreign Wars District 2, which consists of 9 VFW Posts located in Idaho, Lewis, Latah, Nezperce and Clearwater counties, sponsor a Bar-B-Que at the Lewiston Veterans Home. This is really an appreciation dinner for the service and sacrifice of all the Veterans and other residents of the home. This year the menu consisted of steaks, (cut into bite size pieces by volunteers), macaroni salad, baked beans, watermelon, and ice cream for dessert.  Next time you’re in Lewiston, stop by the Veterans Home located at 821 21st Ave. and thank a Veteran! They really appreciate it.” Photo provided by Rick Johnson. Click on the photo for a larger view.

The old Benedict Seed Company buildings which have been used by Primeland as a seed cleaning plant are continuing to be torn down. The empty space at right is where the building previously pictured in the Chronicle was located. The much taller building currently being demolished requires a crane to reach the upper portions. A couple weeks ago the cupola atop the building at right was removed by the crane. The aluminum siding has been removed showing just how much wood was used to construct the building to the right. Click on the photo for a larger view.

Noelle Pikus-Pace, shown after receiving a silver medal at the Winter Olympics, will be at Grangeville July 21. See story above left.
