THANK YOU & CONGRATULATORY NOTES:

THANKFUL FOR FRIENDS HELPING FRIENDS! A photo posted by Debbie Brown shows a dusty road with at least 8 trucks hastening toward the site of a fire.  It happened to be a shed on my land at Starvation  Point. Don Coats pointed out how this is something we are able to count on. As the recipients of their assistance let me again express gratitude for this trait which we are able to count on… friends helping friends. Of course, those of us who have lived here always find this one of the things we love about Sherman County!  May I express appreciation for you wonderful people who were spread all over The Point when I finally heard about the fire and came to see what had happened. Lost nothing which can’t be replaced or regrown. Thanks so much! ~ Nell Melzer and Allan, Bruce and Doug.

CONGRATULATIONS, to Sherman County’s 2017 Oregon Century Farm and Ranch families: Belshe Ranch -James Belshe and Kee/Crofoot Ranch -Dell & Nikki Squire.

THANK YOU, HOME-GROWN ENTERTAINERS … for wonderful family entertainment that celebrates Sherman County with home-grown memory-making open class competition, car show, BBQ, horse games, cattle sorting contest, 4-H & FFA contests, dance music, demolition derby and the Down on the Farm Chore Course at the Sherman County Fair, designed, produced and enjoyed by friends and families. ~The Editor
