Fraser prepares for community center fundraiser

By Norma Brand

    Memorial Day will bring visits to cemeteries all over this country. The lawns are trimmed and flowers will brighten up the stones of family members and friends. The war in the Middle East has added many more monuments to fallen heroes; it is a time to reflect on the good times and sad times. To “Remember.”


    The fundraiser for the Fraser Community Center is planned for Saturday, June 5 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Money raised will go to the Indoor Bathroom Fund. Donations are needed, we are looking for household items, children’s toys, games, dishes, garden tools, anything that is in good shape and you no longer need. Call Gini Donnelly at 435-4525 or Norma Brand at 435-4354 to arrange delivery.

    Congratulations to Tyson and Cheyenne Thornton on the birth of their son Jackson Curtis. Jackson was born on May 18 at Clearwater Valley Hospital in Orofino. He weighed 7 pounds 15.3 ounces and measured 23 inches long. Jackson’s grandparents are Wayne and Lisa Thornton and Mike Jackson and Shannon Broyles. His great-grandparents are Carl and RoseAnna Thornton and Mick and Darlene Jackson.

    Shirley and Keith Lutes attended the wedding of their grandson Adam Allen and his bride Jade Bonnalie. The wedding was held at the Red Lion Inn in Lewiston, and the reception was at the Yacht Club Annex. Shirley reported it was a beautiful wedding with a full house of relatives and friends. Congratulations to the newlyweds. Adam and Jade will make their home in Lewiston.

    Donna Brown made a trip to Nampa on Mother’s Day to spend time with her granddaughter Lydia McIntosh. Lydia’s sister Grace, her mother Danette, and her father Josh flew to San Francisco, CA for the wedding of her uncle Isaac McIntosh. Grace was the flower girl at the wedding. We hear she had a great time. Back home, Lydia and Grandma Donna spent quality time together, while the family toured San Francisco.

    A moose was sighted at the farm of Donna and Danny Brown on Tuesday night and Reggie and Peggy Ball have photos of two cougars that spent some time near their home. They have a camera stationed on a game trail that crosses their property. Ask them to show you the photos of all the critters they have captured on film.

    Peggy and Reggie Ball attended the 50th birthday party of Sandy Moore on Friday, May 14.

    Happy Birthday goes out to Charlotte Bonner on June 2.

    Happy Anniversary goes out to Donna and Danny Brown on June 1, and on June 3 to Larry and Sherry Schlader and Tony and Heather Christopherson.

    Enjoy a safe Memorial Day.
