Historic Pierce Cemetery Friends News

   This past week has been very busy for Historic Pierce Cemetery Friends (HPCF).

   Our group was privileged and honored to serve the luncheon at the courtyard on Aug. 4 in honor of Governor Otters visit.

   Thank you to everyone who helped serve, Pierce Cemetery Friends, Patty Goodrich, Tanjee Goodrich, Verla Thrall, Cindy Flury, Carmen Syed, Linda Smith, Catherine Carlson and special helpers, Taylor Goodrich, Krista Borders, Marlene Johnson, Nancy Cowgar, Sue Thompson, Kathy Hodges, Linda Bolen, Sherry Schlader, and Mary Jo Medley and Nancy Searles. Well done ladies! Everyone did a wonderful job!

   We also had a special display of the Memorial Flags at the cemetery on Aug. 4, in honor of the Governor Otter.

   Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who made an extra effort to help set up the Memorial Flags on Aug 4 and Aug 7. The winner of our Memorial Flag Raffle this year was Cliff Miler. Congratulations Cliff!

   By the way ----as of this week we have changed our name from Historic Pierce Cemetery Friends to Pierce Cemetery Friends.


   I received an e-mail from former pastor Jeff Staggs, his wife, Debbie, passed away three weeks ago. We are all very sorry to hear this.

Capital for a Day

   The Sesquicentennial Committee would like to extend a BIG THANKS to ALL that helped to make the “Capital for a Day” such a wonderful event. There were over 160 of the townsfolk involved, from the planning and beginning preparation and set up to the final teardown. What fun! And what a success! And best of all, to see so many turn out for the occasion. It was great to see the City of Pierce make this a memorable event for Clearwater County.

1860 Days

   A big thank you to everyone, committee members and citizens and visitors of Pierce for making this 1860 Days such a success.

We worked hard to see the smiles and laughter, the tapping feet to the music, and the chocolate pies all over kids' faces.

Thanks to Empire Lumber for the log donation, and to Russ Koepke for the winning bid. Thanks to Solid Rock Co., and Carl Stemrich for his winning bid.

Thanks to all the contributing organizations for creating more excitement and inviting people to Pierce to enjoy the weekend.

Thanks to the Pierce-Weippe Chamber for their donation for extra portable restrooms. We could go on and on, but know this is

all appreciated, and we are always working to make next year's celebration more fun for all.

This week we are taking a break, so the next 1860 Days meeting will be Thursday, Aug.19, 6 p.m. at Blue Moose. We will be discussing

future improvements and ideas, and all committee members are encouraged to attend.
