New Life Fellowship Church is holding their School Supply Drive to fill backpacks for kids that will be given out on Sunday, Aug. 18 from 4-6 p.m. Kids always look forward to starting the new school year with a backpack full of supplies.

If you are able to donate to this wonderful cause they will gladly accept items for the kids or you can also make a monetary donation and it will be used by the “shoppers” to get the needed supplies.

New Life Fellowship’s Aug. 18 Sunday service will be “Cowboy Church” at 10:30 a.m. at the Weippe Community Hall, followed by a potluck. Everyone invited.

Last day for the Pierce Pool was Friday, Aug. 9. We want to thank all those who spent their summer with us. A big Thank You to Idaho Central Credit Union (ICCU) for their donation that made it possible for many local kids to enjoy some fun time at the Pool.

Thanks also going out to the Weippe Rec District for their continued support of the people in their Rec District to have half price swim lessons and free swimming. The Dworshak Rec District paid for transportation for people from their district to come up and partake in swim lessons and also the Tuesday & Thursday Swim Bus. We loved having you all and hope that we will see you next year too!

Now that the Pool has closed we will be doing some much needed maintenance in preparation of having the pool running smoothly (and warm) next summer. Thanks again for sticking it out with us this summer, even when it got a bit chilly!

The Wild Weippe Rodeo will be happening this Weekend! Come on out and support your local rodeo!

Idaho Youth ChalleNGe Academy (IDYCA)

The Cadets got to have a little PT time at the Pierce Pool a few days last week. After the jog down from the Academy I think it felt good to get in the Pool. The Cadets have also started school and are keeping busy with class work. They have already started some Service to Community projects and we look forward to seeing them out in our communities.

Letters of encouragement are always welcome and they will be passed on to those cadets that may not receive mail from home. Just address your letters to: Any Cadet at the address listed below or if you are interested in mentoring a future cadet please contact the Academy at IDYCA, 117 Timberline Drive, Pierce, ID 83546.
