Thanks again to everyone who donated items and to everyone who attended and purchased many of the things on display. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you and we hope you are happy with your selections.

   After the meeting the hostesses served a delightful lunch of taco salad in tortilla shells, cake and strawberry short cake. Bev Bailey won the white elephant. The summer months are busy times, so the Club will take a break, the next meeting will be on Oct. 13. Enjoy the summer; we will see everyone next fall.

   Jan Thornton and Jim McManus held a fish fry at Janís home on Sunday, June 13. The sun came out and it was a beautiful day for an outdoor picnic. Jim loves to fish and he prepared some of the salmon he caught on a grill and some he dipped in a light batter and deep-fried to perfection.  Besides the potluck dishes brought by the guests, Jan also made fry bread.

   Their guests included and Janís grandchildren Ayla and Dylan Campbell, her brother, Gary McCoy and his friend Patti Epeldi came from Nez Perce, Janís son Kurtis, his wife Miranda, and their children Keyan and EmmaLyn came from Kooskia, Jimís sister, Kathy Shawver drove over from Myrtle and Bert Cornu drove up from Orofino.

   The rest of the guests were from the Fraser area. They were RoseAnna Thornton and her granddaughter Cera Selzler, Ron Johnson, Reggie and Peggy Ball and Steve and Norma Brand. What a great way to spend a beautiful late spring day, visiting with everyone and enjoying all that good food. Thanks Jan and Jim.

   The weather in Fraser finally turned warm enough to work in the vegetable gardens. Monday, June 14 was the first day for many of us on the hill to get our seeds planted and the tomatoes and peppers set out. We hope they will have time to mature before summer is over.
