The Gem Team is inviting the hilltop to Pierce Community Day, Saturday, June 27, from 9 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., at Pierce Community Center (parking lot). This eventful day will encompass quite a few happenings: Clean-Up Day starts at 9 a.m, and bags will be available for anyone wishing to enjoy a refreshing walk around town and clean up at the same time. The City garbage truck and the County container will be at the Kiosk that day for discarding any larger items.

Disaster Preparedness presentations will be featured in the parking lot from 10 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. The Pierce Fire Department, Clearwater County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team, and the American Red Cross, among other groups, will inform and teach about being prepared in the event of a disaster. This will be a first for Pierce, and all very welcome information.

Pierce Community Day is all about the Pierce community and its services. All service organizations are invited to host a booth at the Community Center to introduce themselves to the community. This is a no-vendor event, just service groups.

The Pierce Gem Team will be offering wonderful baked goods at this event! We are asking our community of amazing bakers to contribute their talents for this fundraiser. The bake sale will run from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. or until we sell out. This promises to be a huge, helpful, and informative day! If anyone wishes more information or wishes to be part of this event in any way, please call Kathy at 208 464 1083.

The community will soon have two new dog waste disposal stations; one at the Play Park Pavilion, and the other at the Courtyard Park Pavilion. There will be disposal bags for dog waste near a garbage can. We hope this will be another easy incentive to help clean up Pierce.

Our next Movie in the Ballfield will be Saturday, July 11, beginning at 7:30 p.m. The movie will be announced soon. Concessions will be available.
