On Saturday May 9th a group of Greencreek men gathered at the Greencreek Hall.  They updated and cleaned up the area to the left of the Hall.   They pruned the big tree back, removed the fence out front and put concrete barriers out front, painted the metal storage container on the North side of the Hall and then they put up a pole fence on the back of the property to separate the Hall ground with the neighboring alfalfa ground.  The guys did a great job, it looks really nice.

SpokAnimal came to Grangeville this past Wednesday, delivering approximately 575 lbs of dry pet food and 150 cases of canned cat food, which has all been distributed to local animal rescue groups. SpokAnimal also transported thirty six cats & kittens back to Spokane for adoption.  Although their shelter is closed due to Covid-19, they have been able to continue adoptions through sites such as Petco and Petsmart.  The cats & kittens transported were in local foster care and were coordinated by Animal Rescue Foundation and Animal Ark. We are very grateful for all of the help SpokAnimal is able to offer our rural area!! The pictures show Chad from SpokAnimal and Rhonda from ARF offloading some of the pet food and the other pic is kittens ready to travel to Spokane to find their furever homes.
