   This column had an early copy requirement because of the Memorial Day weekend, so you will hear about the Camas Festival events next week.

   On Thursday, Marie Green’s daughter, Wilma reported her mother is expecting company over the Memorial Day weekend. Ben and Linda Marra, who are friends of Mike Green, were scheduled to speak at the Camas Festival and planned to spend some time at the farm. Their topic “Along the Red Road” photo journey was given at 1:15 p.m. on Saturday at the Weippe Community Hall.

   The Fraser Community sends our condolences to Oreta and Dale Stuart and their family. Oreta’s mother Flo Holt Lyons passed away on Wednesday, May 12. The funeral services were held in Lewiston on Monday, May 17, and the internment took place at Gold Hill Cemetery at Cedar Ridge.

   A picture of Flo and her granddaughter, Lisa riding on a mule and her husband, Buck on horseback was featured on the inside cover of the memorial folder. This picture is a real tribute to a ranching family.

   The Stuart’s daughter, Carmon Minard and her husband, Scott, and daughter, Tessa Brown, traveled to Fraser on Friday, May 14, for the funeral.

   The family also attended the graduation ceremonies at the University of Idaho for Mallory Calhoun on that weekend.

   Happy Birthday goes out to Clint Boyer on June 7, and to his wife, Bobbi, on June 10.

   Happy Anniversary to Sharon and Mike McHone on June 6.
