The new Community Hall lower level kitchen has been framed in over the last week. The doorway and serving window are shown. The doorway in the back will be closed off with a new ladies restroom put in back there. The new entrance from the outside ramp will be to the left and a bit behind where this photo was taken. It will be just to the south of the wall separating the lower hall from the council chambers on the east side of the building. When the work is finished the Senior Citizen lunch will move here from the current location in the Cottonwood Community Church and the outdoor handicap access ramp will make it easier to gain entrance to the lower level, replacing the elevator out front that never really worked like it was supposed to.

This Picture is of the 5th Grade Boys Basketball team.   Players,  Ben Gehring, Keenan Shears, Morgan Poxleitner, Colton McElroy,  Conner Forsman,  Ryan Wemhoff, Westin Riener, Levi Walsh.   Coaches   Sarah Walsh and Glenn Poxleitner. They played 3 games in Kamiah this last weekend, their first games of the year.   Although we didn’t win any of these games,  these young men gained a bunch of experience and really improved on defense and rebounding as the weekend went on.  Good job Boys.  Photo provided by Glenn Poxleitner.

Summit Academy students in grades 7-12 headed to Boise on Friday January 22nd.  On Friday afternoon they toured the Idaho Capital Building with Senator Sheryl Nuxoll.  That evening the students gathered with other youth at St. John's Cathedral for an overnight pro-life youth rally.  Ramona Trevino, speaker for the pro-life march gave a special presentation to the students.  Ms. Trevino is the former director of a Planned Parenthood clinic.  They spent the rest of the evening preparing signs for the next day's march and playing games.  Saturday morning brought Mass at St. John's Cathedral and then the March for Life which led them to the Capital Building once again.  It was an excellent opportunity to defend and share their faith.  The students returned home Saturday night exhausted from the crazy schedule and all the walking, yet energized by the pro-life movement.  Photo by Summit Academy.
