Assembly President

visits White Pine

Rebekah Lodge #60

Vickie Jorgenson, Rebekah Lodge Reporter sent this information.

Last Tuesday night lodge members hosted our State Assembly President Pat Marvin from Mountain Home. This was her official visit to our lodge and we honored her with a dinner prior to our regular meeting. As Assembly President Pat has spent this past year traveling and visiting each of the 20 lodges we have in Idaho.

During her visit to our lodge she talked about the historical aspects of the Odd Fellows and Rebekah describing their role in caring for people in the community before public services came in to being. Our creed back then was to care for the sick, assist the widow or orphans and bury the dead.

These charitable acts have been replaced by public service agencies that provide those services when needed. So, in keeping with our charitable work we now step up and help in whatever way is needed in our local community.

Just a few of the examples of community projects are: providing a place for grieving families and friends to meet and comfort one another, awarding a scholarship to a high school student, stepping up to lend a hand in other community projects like the 4th grade forestry tour, or preparing food and serving at the Prom and sponsoring the Weippe Mobile Food Pantry. Our members believe that community involvement is the key to our existence and we work hard to step up when called upon.

If you would like more information about us or our community projects please contact Christina Supak or Kathleen Kingston.

The museum is having a bake sale Friday from 10 to 4 – at the museum. There will be surprises in store, so come out and see what museum members are providing. This is a fund raiser for the museum. Some other events at the museum are the Bunko party at the museum Wednesday, April 24, 11 a.m. and a Genealogy meeting Thursday, April 25, 1 p.m. with Tammy Trieb.

Weippe Wesleyan Church will have their fourth annual Easter Drama and Egg Hunt Saturday, April 20 at 11:45.  This is a free event with prize drawings and free hotdogs.  There will be a few hundred eggs with candy placed out for the kids to pick up.  The egg hunt is open to kids up to 12. They are divided into four different age groups so all get a chance to find some eggs.

Registration starts at 10:30 for the prize drawings. You will need to be present to win.

The drama starts at noon and lasts seven minutes. They are looking for “actors” for the drama. There are no speaking parts, the “acting” is playing out what is being sung about in a song.  Rehearsal is Friday, April 19 and they can use more “actors” of all ages.  If you would like to help, call the church at 208 435-4470, leave a message and they will get back to you with the practice time.

The Easter service at Weippe Wesleyan is scheduled for April 21, 10:45. There will be a short song service, approximately 10:30, before church actually starts.

He also mentioned wells have been in operation without problems; currently taking in a daily average of 120,000 gallons per day into Lagoon #1 and currently pumping an average of 76,000 gallons per day.
