It looks like the month of February is going to be our snowiest time this year. As I look at the calendar for the past week I see notations of snow almost every day.
When we woke up on Monday morning the employees of the Clearwater Highway District were out plowing the roads in our community. It was still dark and heavy snow was falling: the lights of the big plow made it look like a space ship moving up Cottonwood Road. Steve used our John Deere tractor to plow our yard and to clear the snow that was piled up by our mail box. Our mail person has to be commended for making the rounds on such a snowy day. We send a “BIG Fraser Thank You” to everyone for all the work they do.
On Sunday evening, I left a message for Jake Armitage at the Clearwater Highway District shop about plowing the driveway and the parking lot at the Fraser Community Center on Monday and Wednesday of this week. The Fraser Boosters 4-H Club and the Get Together Club are scheduled to use the building.
I received a telephone call from Rick McIntosh on Monday; he decided to cancel the 4-H meeting that was scheduled for 7 p.m. on Monday night due to the snow.
The Get Together Club will meet at 12 o’clock on Wednesday; let’s hope we don’t have to contend with another snow storm.
You still have time to get your special Valentine a gift this week. Sherry’s Cakes and Bouquets has fresh cut flowers, including Tulips, and lots of special gifts to choose from at her shop. Her hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Feb. 13 and on Valentine’s Day. Her new location is 112997 Lower Fords Creek Road which is just ½ mile off Highway 11. For more information call her at 208-435-4793.

Orofino Schools High Honors went to Breyer Boyer for the 9th grade and Macoy Boyer for the 10th grade. Congratulations, we are proud of you!
I received a card from Milton Snyder on Monday; he enjoyed the article that appeared in the Fraser News on Jan. 23 about the “Gun Fight at Fords Creek Canyon”. He mentioned that his dad, Milton Cooper Snyder was four years old at the time of the incident. Milton plans to be in the area for a signing of his book Reflections sometime in April.
Jerry Moore and Dave Daniels traveled to Wallace last week to visit Mike Green. Mike is at home and enjoyed the visit, our thoughts and prayers go out to you, Mike.
I contacted Carol Skinner several times over the past week. Her husband Randy passed away on Jan. 9. After his services in Orofino on Jan. 13 she and her grandchildren took his remains to the Turner Cemetery at Soda Springs for burial. Carol is now at the farm on Green Road, taking care of her husband’s things. We send you our love at this difficult time, Carol.
Happy Birthday Greetings go out to Connor Cox on Feb. 21, Izabella Brown on Feb. 23 and Jayce McHone on Feb. 25.
