   Everet Martin reported that the Hilltop Heritage Committee co-sponsored Sunday’s “Weippe All School Reunion”. This event was a great success with the community hall being filled to capacity. The entire day was wonderful.

   Because of the generous support of those attending, the museum will be able to stay open for the foreseeable future. Everet Martin, Chairman of both committees, would like thank everyone who attended and who supported the museum.

   Weippe Rebekahs will participate in the community garage sale. They will hold a PLANT and Glass sale Saturday, June 5 at the Hilltop Senior Citizens Center at 215 1st Avenue West in Weippe from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The plants will be both indoor and outdoor plants of various sizes. The Glass sale will include Depression glass and collectibles.

   The Rebekahs want to thank everyone who supports their fund raising events. They are a non-profit organization that invests profits in the community. This is a Win-Win situation.
