Happenings - stamps

These S&H stamps were found in an old book. Remember these? You received a booklet where you pasted the stamps. After collecting enough full books, you could pick an object from a catalogue. I remember saving books of stamps to get a mixer. Different objects required different amounts of books.

Correction from last week: Due to a misunderstanding with Dr. Snyder’s publicist, the booking signing is scheduled for Saturday, April 6, 1 to 2 p.m. at the Clearwater County Free Library at Weippe instead of the Weippe Hilltop Heritage Museum. Dr. Milton Snyder’s latest book, Reflections: A Retrospective – What I have Seen, What I have Learned, What you might like to know, and a Life Well Spent will be available at this event.

He is a former teacher, principal, professor, and Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Snyder is currently living in Seattle. Previous books include Maybe Milton Should Go Work In The Woods, a memoir published in 2009. Milton was born in 1929 on the family farm outside Weippe. The family moved to Lewiston after his father’s death, where he graduated from Lewiston High School in 1947.

In 2015, he published The Third Battle of Manassas: Managing Change and Growth in a Suburban Virginia School District, Manasses, Prince William County, 1973-1977. In 2016 his book Radiant: The Dolores Jean Gibbons Story was published.

Milton has many relatives in the area; among those are Barbie Jared and Billi Cooper.

The Weippe Rodeo Association had their first meeting of the year last Friday at Weippe City Hall. Minutes of the last meeting were read and accepted and the treasurer reported all bills paid. Andria Brotnov has resigned as Queen Wrangler, Angel Gering offered to hold the post until elections during April meeting. Under old business: speakers for bleachers, estimate $1,100. More discussion and price checking needs to be done before there is a decision on this.

The announcer, clown and stock contractor are all booked, except for local stock. The committee needs a fund-raising committee to help complete the alcohol-free bleachers. They are two thirds of the way there.

Elections for President, Vice President and Director for 2019-2021 are scheduled for the next meeting in April.

Shelby Bird is Weippe Rodeo Queen and Hannah VanHook is Weippe Rodeo Princess for 2019. Thanks to the November spaghetti dinner fundraiser, Weippe Rodeo Royalty will have new chaps and other necessaries for the year.

The search is on for Grand Marshal(s) this year. More people are needed to assist with the many tasks associated with the Wild Weippe Rodeo. Break the tasks down and it is manageable, the more supporters/volunteers the less work for all. Consider helping with the Wild Weippe Rodeo planning!
