Families and friends enjoy visiting at the Fraser Father’s Day Breakfast on Sunday, June 16.

The 15th of June has slipped by and over half of our year is gone; has Old Father Time been making adjustments to his time schedule without informing us? When we were young, we thought certain events would never arrive; now that we are heading for the twilight years’ time seems to have taken to the fast lane. Maybe this is a reminder that each day is precious gift and it isn’t a good idea to take it for granted.


There were two containers that remained at the Fraser Community Center after the Potluck Dinner in memory of Bill Jackson ended. One is a large glass bowl with etching on the sides that held a pasta salad and the other is sauce pan with a glass lid and a spoon that contained beans. Please call Board Member Norma at 208-435-4354 to schedule a time to pick up your items.

The Fraser Get Together Club met on Wednesday, June 12 for their regular monthly meeting. Hostesses Linda Beard and RosaAnna Thornton served sandwiches, dessert, juice, ice tea and coffee before the meeting was called to order. The White Elephant was won by RosaAnna Thornton.

Plans for Annual Father’s Day breakfast were finalized; Peggy Ball printed the posters advertising the event and Rosena Aultz and Sally Marks distributed them. It was a pleasure to have Dyan Spence entertain the members, she played her guitar and sang several songs and then remained for the meeting.

The club will take the summer off and meet again October 9; hostesses will be Donna Brown and Cindy Rose.

After the meeting, Cindy Rose had just turned right onto Highway 11 when a young bear ran across in front of her car and then veered up the Judd Ranch driveway. Loretta Judd may have a wild critter living on her property this summer.

On Friday, June 14, I had an appointment at the Clearwater Valley Clinic. As I was waiting, I visited briefly with Nichole Hendren and had the pleasure of meeting her and Jake Armitage’s little daughter, Jerika Madalynn, who was born on June 1. Jerika’s three older brothers will be a big help as she grows up.

RoseAnna Thornton’s great granddaughter, Eveleigh June Batterman, was born on April 8 at 9:36 p.m. Her parents are Neika Denison and Tyler Batterman. Everleigh’s grandparents are Brandy and Don Denison; great grandparents are Gene and Linda Applington and Lola Wilkins is her Great Great Grandmother.

Nancy Maki reported the members of Faith Lutheran Church in Pierce invite everyone to join them on Sunday, June 23 at the Pierce Play Park. A worship service will be at 10 a.m. followed by a potluck dinner. All are welcome, if you have any questions contact Nancy at 208-464-2463.

The Annual Fraser Father’s Day Breakfast was held on Sunday, June 16, at the Fraser Community Center. The kitchen crew arrived at 6 a.m. Steve Brand and Brad Brown set up the tables and chairs; Donna Brown, Norma Brand, Linda Beard and Dolores Watson worked on the food preparations.

The aroma of the foods that made up an “all you can eat breakfast” filled the Community Center as people arrived at 8 a.m. The Kitchen was very busy for the next two hours.

Steve Brand prepared the pancakes on the big grill, Donna made the biscuits, and Linda browned the sausages and cracked the eggs for Norma to scramble. The sausage gravy was heated on the stove before it was poured into the crock pot. Dolores helped until she had to take over as the cashier.

This is a fun community event and the kitchen crew was pleased to serve all the area residents who stopped in for breakfast. It warmed out hearts to see everyone enjoying the tasty food as they visited with their neighbors and friends. Iris and Wally Schmidt made a surprise visit this year.

When everyone had said good-bye the crew cleaned up the Center for the next event. Plan to come back next year and start your Father’s Day celebration with a tasty breakfast. We will look forward to serving you again. On a final note: The Fraser Get Together Club appreciated Mary Ann’s in Weippe for their help when the correct change was needed for the cash box.

Happy Birthday Greetings go out to Emma Brown and Dawn Cloin on July 2.
