Once again, we invite the creative juices in everyone to start flowing, to make the awesome auction items we see every year.

This is a lively auction, and Leroy Kuykendall has graciously agreed to be our auctioneer again. There will be door prizes, and as always awaits, the superb layout of delicious appetizers created by our best cooks. The kids’ craft room will also be up and running. Anyone wishing to donate food, crafts, or just time is encouraged to call Kathy at 208-464-1083 or contact any Gem Team member. Thank you in advance, this will be a fun night.

Let Jenni or Kim know if you would like to participate so we can make sure we have enough materials.

Pierce Community Center

The Pierce Community Center is preparing for Fall Events and getting ready to send out their annual Bazaar information, so be watching for yours in the mail. If you normally do not receive one and would like to attend this year’s Holiday Bazaar, contact the Pierce Community Center and leave your information for Brandy to get back with you. Starting in November we are beginning school year events at the Center.

The first craft class will be Oct. 22, at 6 p.m. We will be doing a pumpkin craft using dryer vents. Prepayment is necessary and choice of color as they will be painted prior to the class in the color of your choice. A single pumpkin is $25, or two $45 (for two that will be stacked). Contact Brandy or call the Community Center for more details for the class. ALL items needed to create your personalized pumpkin will be provided. Bring your own glue gun as there will only be a couple on hand.

With the Bond passing, and a new roof being done to the Community Center, the original, 50-year-old air turbines were saved and repurposed into large “pumpkins”. There were only two turbines, one to be sold and one to be raffled off at the Annual Holiday Bazaar. These turbines have been painted and decorated to resemble fall holiday pumpkins.

All proceeds made from the repurposing of the turbines goes back to the Community Center. The turbine to be sold has already been sold. The proud owner of one of the Pumpkin Turbine is RoseAnna Thornton of Orofino, formerly of Lower Fords Creek. We would like to extend our thanks to her on her very generous purchase and donation to the Community Center. We hope you enjoy your “small” piece of Pierce Community Center History.

The second turbine raffle tickets are $1 a ticket, or six tickets for $5. You can view the “pumpkin” in person at the Community Center and purchase your tickets while there. Also, you DO NOT need to be present to win, so those who live out of the area can support the Center and have a chance at winning the second pumpkin. If you come join us at the Annual Holiday Bazaar and purchase the salad and soup lunch, you will receive a free entry to the pumpkin.

The Pierce Community Center is open for their normal hours. Monday-Thursday from, 4 p.m.-7 p.m., and Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. DO NOT send your child after school, or on Fridays, if they have been ill. They are also going to strictly enforce cleanliness in your child while at the Center; washing hands, wiping down computers if they trade spots, etc. In order to keep the Center open, they need to make sure guest and staff are being kept safe.

Any events, news, or information you would like to share in the Clearwater Tribune under the Pierce/Weippe news, please be sure to contact Brandy Denison by social media or email at mrsfs24@gmail.com prior to the deadline on Monday to make the following Wednesday paper.
