THANK YOU & CONGRATULATORY NOTES:

THANK YOU! The entire Stradley family would like to thank each and every person who came out to help with our shop fire on Tuesday August 21st. Thanks to the fast responses and hard work of the various departments and many individuals on scene, the fire was contained to just the single structure and no one was injured.  We are so grateful to you all! ~Dick, Arlone, Brian, Lara and Levi Stradley

CONGRATULATIONS! The Sherman County Fair honors the Sherman County Road Crew as the 2018 Grand Marshals: Ray Mabe, Mike Barrett, Ryan Owens, Keith Fritts, Bruce Olsen, Gary Shull, Luke Lawrence, Rick Jauken, and Mark Coles.

Your willingness to put it into words

is all that is necessary.
