Kettle Falls students donate food to food bank
Kettle Falls Middle School students donated a total of 1026 pounds of food to the Kettle Falls food bank last week for the annual Martin Luther King food drive. The winning class received bragging rights and a trek down to Mama Boys for pizza and soda. Mr. Jones’ class took 1st place at 314 lbs brought in. Students almost doubled their last year total of 529 pounds. The Kettle Falls food bank was very grateful!
Colville Rendezvous Days looking for volunteers
In order for Rendezvous Days to move forward in 2019, we are in need of a few key positions that we need to find volunteers for, or the event will not happen this year. Most importantly, we need someone willing to step up and take the position of the General Chairman. The current chairman, Steve Oswin, is willing to mentor someone during the 2019 event in order for the position to be completely taken over in 2020. Other key positions needed are the secretary, and volunteers for set up and tear-down. If you are interested in any of these positions, please let us know as soon as possible. If you know anyone in the community who you think would want to be a part of this event, please give them our information. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Future committee meetings will be in the evening as this seems to be the best time for people to be able to attend. Thank you.
Washington State Patrol will have additional patrols on St. Patrick’s Day
Whether or not you have Irish decent in your DNA test, Saint Patty’s Day is a fun reason to get together for corned beef, cabbage and a green drink. The Washington State Patrol (WSP) would like to remind everyone of the importance of planning ahead and avoid driving impaired at all cost. We will have additional troopers on duty this weekend in an effort to remove impaired drivers and prevent any potential tragedy on our roadways. The WSP Mobile Impaired Driving Unit (MIDU) will also be positioned in Snohomish County so those arrested can be dropped off and processed by staff assigned to this unit. We want to encourage everyone to have a great weekend and drive sober!
