Fire Department car wash

    Weippe Fire Department will have a Bake Sale and Car Wash Saturday July 31 and again August 14. This is a group that works constantly to keep the members of our community safe. They respond to fires and help people avoid fires by using preventative measures. 

Family visits

    Sandee and John Cox were visited by his son, John “Charlie” Cox . The family while enjoying a BBQ held in John [Charlie’s] honor. Greg Klug, Sand’s son, took time from his busy work schedule to join the family for an ice cold Coke.

    John, known as Charlie as a youth attended school in Weippe and graduated from Timberline. John currently lives and works in the greater San Deigo area. This trip was by motorcycle. Motorcycling down the open highway is one of John’s favorite types of vacations.  As part of this adventure he filmed his trip up the Greer grade. Using a small camera attached to the front of his motorcycle, he videoed his trip curve-by-curve. The resulting video was played on the TV screen and relived by all.


    Dolores Watson traveled to Elko NV to attend the wedding of her grandson, Curtis Millage and Amanda Merril, both of Elko. Curtis is the son of Terry and Bill Millage. Terry and Bill raised their children in Weippe until Curtis was in grade school.

    Dolores flew from Lewiston to Boise and was met by granddaughter, Cherish Millage Rooney. They drove to Elko to gather with family for the celebration.
