 Annual Show & Shine Saturday in the park

   Orofino’s 7th annual Show & Shine will be held Saturday, July 17, in Orofino City Park. Over 100 classic cars will be on display.

   The event is free of charge to all. Food vendors will be present as well as KLER Radio which will be playing oldies music and broadcasting live from the park. Bring the family, and have fun from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m.

    The Show & Shine Committee donates scholarships each year to deserving seniors. Show & Shine chooses students who will be Manual Arts students and who might not otherwise receive scholarships. One hundred percent of monies raised goes into the scholarship fund as all costs are paid for by the members. To date, the group has awarded $22,000 in scholarships through the sale of T-shirts, $5 raffle tickets and entry fees.

   Prizes being raffled off will be a $200 gift certificate donated by Les Schwab; a $200 gas card; and a $100 gas card.

   This year’s scholarship recipients are: (from Timberline Schools) Alex Opdahl who received a $1,500 scholarship; he will be attending LCSC. Also from Timberline, Walker Newcome received a $1,000 scholarship.

   From Orofino High School, Stephanie Steward received a $2,000 scholarship and plans to attend LCSC. David Upton received a $1,500 scholarship and will be attending North Idaho College.

   Congratulations to these hard working students.
