Watch the Trojan Volleyball schedule times. The published schedules say the games will begin at 4pm. The accurate time is 5pm. The days haven’t changed, just the time.

Supervising Teacher, Seth Coombe, said that the Cardwell School staff is in place and ready to take on the 47 students registered for this school year. Kindergarten has 9 eager little students starting their education experience. The rest of the class numbers will be later. Box Tops for Education are still being accepted at the school.

The Whitehall Pinochle Club announces its winners from the regular afternoon of cards. High went to Carol Tichenor, Second to Martha Hanson, Low to Florence Weyer and Pinochle to Kathy Clark. Renee Webster had a Round Robin. Host was Michael Clark and next will be Gladys Ballard. Guests were Erv Hedegaard and Dee Panich.

Days of opportunity are passing by quickly for anyone procrastinating about visiting the Jefferson Valley Museum. The closing date (for the 2017 season) is September 15th. Local visitors, new residents and long time ones, have added to this season and made it so interesting for the volunteers. Questions provide them opportunities to learn more about the area as research brings answers. On Sept. 10th, Nick Schrauger, who has family ties to Whitehall is bringing a group of Koreans to investigate and locate the Truck Gardens that were operated by various Korean families in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Some of you reading this didn’t know that. So much to learn about our valley.

Labor Day is misnamed - it should be Play Weekend. My house was busy for the weekend, with Dan and Kelly Mock from Gillette, Wyoming and Cameron and Shelby Mock from Boulder, Colorado arriving early Saturday morning and filling every minute with work, visiting, church and an afternoon at the lake in Helena. Other family members joined them for dinner and lots of LOUD visiting and laughing. William and Julie Grinder and their four daughters had just returned from an extended vacation, mostly out of state, and added to the wildness of my house. Today, Labor Day, is quiet. It’s easy to apply Philippians 4:4 when the weekend was such a blessings. “Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, rejoice.”

Something to look forward to: On September 23, 2017, a group of professional musicians from the Eastern part of the U.S.A. and friends of Dave and Axon Parker, will be performing at the Star Theater with a ‘no charge’ concert. It will be an amazing evening of music. Time, etc., will be announced next week.

On Friday, at 9:30 am at my house, there will be a kick-off meeting to start arrangements to celebrate the Cardwell School’s 100th anniversary. Anyone interested, please come and get involved.
