The month of April was blessed with a variety of weather in the Fraser community. Mother Nature and Old Man Winter provided us with everything from sunshine to an intense snow storm on Sunday April 28.
We had some very windy days along with rain that amounted to almost five inches in our rain gauge. We will see if all that moisture brings on the flowers in the month of May.
Speaking of the month of May, Mother’s Day arrives on May 12. Sherry Schlader reported she will have out door baskets, bedding plants, fresh cut bouquets and gifts available at the Little Cottage shop at 12997 Lower Fords Creek Road.
Plan on sending your special lady something beautiful for Mother’s Day. Put your order in early. Her telephone number is 208-435-4793. Deliver is available.
The Fraser Community Center has a new roof over the south entrance. Reggie Ball was hired by the board to design and install the roof.
The weather finally cooperated on Thursday, April 25. Steve Brand used his line truck to lift the finished roof out of Reggie’s pick up and placed above the door.
Before the day was over the job was completed, plus a wall was installed on the west side. Now there will be protection available for anyone entering the building. Good job guys.
On the morning of Monday, April 29, the Clearwater Highway district worked on Lower Fords Creek Road. They used the big grader to edge the gravel road to provide a ditch to catch any excess water.
Sherry Schlader invited me to sit at her table for the “Six for Tea” event held at the Pierce Community Center on Sunday, April 28. This is a special tea to honor the senior girls at timberline Schools and the Idaho Youth ChalleNGe Academy. All ten tables were decorated to compliment the theme “Let’s have a Party”. Doni and Tiffany Bonner provide the entertainment.
The committee members provide the trays of tasty Savory and Sweet foods. Each course was served with a delightful tea which was provided by Amy Jared. An English Breakfast Tea was served with the Savory course and a Black Current Tea complimented the Sweet course. This was a very special event and shows the support of the community for all graduating seniors.
Kay Stone and I had been working on a P.E.O. project for about a year. To show her appreciation for my help she had Sherry Schlader deliver a flat of pansies to my door. Thanks Kay, they are now planted and we will enjoy their colorful faces when we sit on the back deck.
