HONORING AND CELEBRATING THAT

IMPORTANT MAN IN OUR LIVES: Dad

T

his month officially marks the start

of summer. With the longer days

and more sunshine, this is the time

of year when there is no better time to enjoy

the outdoors.

Here in the Inland Northwest, opportunities

abound when it comes to the many outdoor

activities—most of which are right at our

fingertips. Whether it’s a round of golf at

your favorite golf course or getting out on

the water for a day of boating, now is the

time to make it happen.

There is a lot of pressure put on families

these days to be successful; to give back to

their church and community; to juggle the

pressures of work (many working more

than “full time” just to make ends meet)

while managing sports activities and social

engagements; to raise independent, strong,

kind children; to have life all figured out and

being, or at least appearing, “put together.”

It is nearly impossible, yet, every day, men

are rising up to one of the greatest challenges

and lifelong commitments, though most

rewarding—that of fatherhood.

MEN & WOMEN!

June 20 is that one day a year set aside

to honor and celebrate our fathers, and

those men in our lives who have been our

unwavering father figures.

“Father” isn’t just a name or a title, but a

role; a figurehead of the family. He is a man

who is not just present but engaged in the

life of his wife and children. Even more so

now than ever, we need men to step up and

be leaders in the home. It is his duty to pass

on values and lessons to his children, while

helping relieve the everyday pressures most

modern-day women and mothers are faced

with. Now is not the time to take a backseat.

Men are severely needed, and it is imperative

that their voices be heard and that they make

every effort in making a difference in the

lives of the people who look up to them—

especially their children.

Thank you to those men who sacrifice for

the betterment of their families, selflessly

committed to raising the next generation of

men and women, whose hands our future

lies. This Father’s Day, reflect on the meaning

of this day while celebrating those strong,

hard-working, determined, loving men

who are always ready and willing to take the

wheel and help lead us to a brighter future.

Happy Father’s Day to those not only with us

but who have passed on, their legacy living

on through their children and grandchildren.

Come on Baby Light My Fire

WAYS TO WARM UP THE OUTDOORS

By Deann Hammer, Interior Designer

The Inland Northwest has an abundance of nature at our

fingertips. We love to be outdoors and enjoy the water,

mountains, and singsong of birds.

However, when the sun goes down, temperatures drop—and

it gets chilly. There are a number of options for outdoor heat

that can help us warm our souls both inside and out.

Gas Lanterns

Gas lanterns were a staple in New Orleans and the South, and have

now made an entrance on the West Coast. These charming fixtures are

beautiful on a front porch or back deck, as they have a living fire inside

of them and add warm light to any space. You will need to plan ahead

when installing them, as they require a gas line to be installed inside of

your walls.

Built-In or Free-Standing Outdoor Fireplaces

You can buy a cinder block kit to build the fireplace structure to

accommodate a real wood-burning fire, or you can plumb it for gas for an

easier gas log set. Look at the shipping cost, as these blocks are concrete

and are delivered on pallets that are very heavy! These units will typically

need to be faced with a ledgerstone or brick. Sometimes they are covered

with plaster for a more Spanish or modern look. MutualMaterials.com

sells stone cladding.

Outdoor Gas Fireplaces

There are gas outdoor fireplace units you can purchase from a fireplace

shop that can be framed in with wood, but make sure they are protected

from the rain/elements, preferably under cover, as the water will damage

your pilot light. After framing, these gas prefab units are then covered

with stone surround to emulate the fireplaces we see inside a house,

adorned with glass doors or a glass panel.

Stone Fire Pits

Stone fire pits are the easiest way to roast a marshmallow or burn wood

in open air. There are even kits available to make the project even easier.

Make sure to measure your space first so that there is enough room to

walk around the fire pit while also being able to accommodate a few

Adirondack chairs.

Pre-Made Metal or Stone Chiminea-Type Wood-Burning Units

There are various options available online for small metal wood-burning

free-standing units. I have found that the front opening of the unit needs

There are a number of options for outdoor heat that

to be fairly small, or you will get a horrible back draft of smoke spewing at your

face. The best units have small front openings to end the smoke up through the

flue and out of the way.

Propane Heaters

Propane heaters are a terrific way to heat up a space. There are tall units that sit

on the ground (with wheels for ease of mobility), or if you have a covered porch,

installing ceiling heating units are very effective. These are typically hung between

6- to 8-feet apart and have a metal shield on top that deflects the heat downward

toward your seating area. They can be hard wired in on a thermostat, which allows

you to have more control over your heat than a free-standing unit that can easily

be blown out by strong wind.

Fire Pit Tables

These can come with a built-in space for a propane tank under the table, or a hose

that leads to a gas hookup on your house. Fire pit tables are a quick and easy way

to add fire to a dinner party.

You can enjoy the outdoors long into the cool evenings with a little fire. It’s up to

you to decide which works best for your space and lifestyle.

A

friend of mine has a traffic-coneorange

T-shirt hanging from one of the

bookcases in his living room. The shirt is

new, unworn, and the bookcase is situated so that

you can see it from anywhere in the main living

area of his home. That makes the shirt impossible

to miss. Knowing my friend, I was certain there

was a story attached to this unique decoration.

“That’s my favorite hiking shirt,” he said,

cryptically adding, “I just haven’t worn it yet.” He

paused, giving my curiosity time to build, “I keep

it there as a reminder and as a promise.

“A few months ago, my family was exploring a

beautiful preserve about an hour’s drive from our

home, miles of well-kept hiking trails situated

around a stunning lake, postcard idyllic. We

were about a mile or so from the third trailhead,

looking forward to a picnic lunch, when my

youngest son spotted a fallen tree.

“This kid can’t pass up a good climbing tree, so,

up he went, and I followed. We started across, but

the log was rotting in the center. My foot found

a particularly mushy spot and I slipped. I knew

I was going down, either jumping or sliding.

It wasn’t that far, maybe four or five feet, so I

jumped.

“Good idea. Poor execution. My left foot landed

in a hole, and I felt my heel catch on a tree root,

as my momentum continued to carry me forward

… until …

“Crack.”

‘Into the Forest I Go’

My friend shook his head, “What I thought

would be another fun, immersive day exploring

nature turned out to be the first of three days in

the hospital, including surgery to repair a badly

broken ankle, followed by six weeks hobbling

around my house on one leg.

EMBRACING ADVENTURE

BY TRISH BUZZONE, THINKING PARTNER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, THE JOHN MAXWELL TEAM

which I’m still walking through … well, limping

through, anyway.”

My friend glanced at the shirt, smiled, “One

day soon, I’m going to put that shirt on for the

first time, and I’m going to hike that trail to the

end and back again. I’ll probably move more

slowly, certainly more carefully. That’s why it’s

my favorite shirt, because it represents the first

of many more hikes to come, new opportunities

to explore, seeking adventure immersed in the

beauty of nature.

“That’s the promise. And the reminder? The

reminder is that those experiences that bring us

exhilaration, illumination, joy and fulfillment

may also cause us pain. That’s part of the risk

integral to growth, and it shouldn’t discourage us

from seeking adventure or embracing challenges.

We’re at our best when we’re open and curious.

We need to get out, to explore, to embrace the

wonder and the opportunity on the other side of

the unknown. That, to me, is the meaning behind

the message on my favorite hiking shirt, a quote

by the famous naturalist John Muir: ‘And into the

forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.’

“That’s always been one of my favorite reasons

for heading out on the trail. You start the hike

understanding the world and yourself in a certain

way, and you always come home understanding

both the world and yourself a little bit differently.”

My friend glanced at the traffic-cone-orange

shirt, adding, “Next time you go on an adventure,

don’t go looking for anything in particular. Be

fully present and open to whatever happens—and

try not to fall off any trees.”

PARADISE VALLEY GRANGE RETURNS

BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH ADVOCACY, GROWTH AND CONNECTION

By Taylor Shillam

SHE STARTED

ENGAGING WITH

COMMUNITY

MEMBERS TO SAVE

THE GRANGE—

AND RECEIVED AN

OVERWHELMINGLY

POSITIVE

RESPONSE.

The Paradise Valley Grange Hall #389 was

established in 1945 with the purpose of

promoting positive changes within the

community. Since then, it has impacted the lives

of many who were lucky enough to grow up in

Paradise Valley.

Those positive changes continue today thanks

to a community dedicated to its revival. With

memberships growing, more events scheduled, and a

focus on continued growth while fostering the tightknit,

supportive groups granges were created for, the

Paradise Valley Grange is on track to becoming better

than ever.

A grange is a social organization that encourages

families to band together and promote the economic

and political well-being of the surrounding

community and its agriculture. Founded after the

Civil War in 1867, the grange is the oldest American

agricultural advocacy group with a national scope.

Nationally, granges have strong history in grassroots

activism, community service and family values, acting

as “America’s premier nonprofit, nonpartisan, fraternal

organization that advocates for rural America and

agriculture, and brings rural communities together,”

according to the founding organization. Across the

state, granges serve based on the values they were

founded on: faith, hope, charity and fidelity, with

involvement in food pantries, ringing bells for the

Salvation Army, and supporting groups like the FFA

and 4-H.

There used to be several granges in Boundary County;

now, the Paradise Valley Grange is the only one

that remains.

“Last year I received word that the Grange could

possibly be ready to shut its doors,” said Kim Haworth,

representative for the Paradise Valley Grange. “They

were down to just a handful of numbers.”

She started engaging with community members to

save the Grange—and received an overwhelmingly

positive response.

“We’re now up to 45 members, with a goal of having

100 by the end of May,” she said at press time. “We

have some good people here. My goal is to get some

of the old events going again (dances, dance classes,

Halloween parties, etc.), and add in some new ideas.”

The Grange hosted a highly successful Bingo night

in May. Entire families were encouraged to attend for

an evening event that included a cash pot for Bingo

winners. Proud of the event’s impressive turnout, the

Grange plans to continue Bingo nights into the near

future as they build on their calendar of events.

With its membership growth on the rise, the Grange

stays motivated with its goals for the future.

18

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


“Our goal right now is to raise money to get our

building repairs done,” Haworth said, recalling

the damage the building has accumulated over

the years. “It needs some tender loving care.”

Another goal of the Grange draws back to its

roots, as Haworth seeks to encourage everyone

to get to know their neighbor again.

“With the influx of new people, no one knows

each other anymore,” she said. She’s hopeful

the growth of the surrounding community will

translate into more opportunity for connection.

“The hall is currently being used by 4-H groups,

Extension Office classes, and more—and with

the white church down the road, we’re hoping

to draw wedding receptions our way.”

The community is already showing its strength,

with members gathering regularly to contribute

to community projects, including yard cleanup

for the Grange itself. They hold monthly

meetings and potlucks to come together to

boost membership, morale and more.

The Grange is also dedicated to giving back and

is working on a selection of programs to help

people in need. Haworth has been in contact

with a handful of local entities to determine

where that help is needed most.

A growing line of CBD products

We are a local manufacturer of

CBD products. All of our products

are lab tested and made from the

highest quality materials. CBD

has been proven to have many

medicinal benefits such as pain relief,

inflammation and helps with anxiety!

We carry CBD for pets as well.

Check us out at:

Facebook.com/northidahocbd/

Or email us directly at:

nidahocbd@gmail.com

Charitable work is the root focus of granges

across the nation, with members giving

countless volunteer hours to raise funds for

important causes, including local education.

Haworth encourages any community members

who see, hear or know of anyone in need of a

helping hand to contact the Grange.

The Paradise Valley Grange is dedicated to

revitalizing and supporting the facility it

occupies, and the surrounding community

it was created for. Through lighthearted

gatherings, efforts to give back and a shared

commitment to growth, the Grange is

determined to continue its progress.

Together, the Paradise Valley Grange, with

support from its members and the surrounding

Bonners Ferry community, can have a positive

impact on life as a local.

The Paradise Valley Grange encourages

community members to follow along with its

growth, initiatives and events on Facebook at

their page titled Paradise Valley Grange #389.

Any community members who are interested

in joining the Grange can send them a direct

message through Facebook or contact Kim

Haworth directly at 208.946.0022.

The grange was established for the betterment

of the community, and our local Paradise Valley

Grange remains dedicated to doing just that.

GEARING UP TO CELEBRATE!

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT TO HELP MAKE THIS AN UNFORGETTABLE WEEKEND!

By Jillian Chandler

Bonners Ferry resident John Becker is at it again to bring two lively

events to the Bonners Ferry community. Saturday, July 3, you

won’t want to miss the full day of family friendly entertainment

at the Boundary County Fairgrounds, as the 9B Arenacross and Fourth

of July parade and fireworks return.

Registration will open at 9am (and continue until 11am) for this

year’s 9B Arenacross. Bonners Ferry’ Fourth of July parade—also

to be held July 3—will start at 11am in the main parking lot of the

fairgrounds. “Anyone is welcome to participate in the parade and to

join those gathering in that area,” smiles John. The 9B Arenacross gates

will open to the public at 4:30pm, with the show starting at 5:30pm.

The night concludes with a spectacular fireworks show, which will

start at dusk in the ballfields at the fairgrounds, and the show is free

to attend! Throughout the evening, there will be food and product

vendors available, and the Parks & Rec concession stand will be open

raising funds as well. As of press time, John was still working to finalize

additional festivities for the day.

Sponsorships are still needed for this year’s events, and the community

is encouraged to help in any way they can. “Our biggest need is

finances,” affirms John. As of press time, they are still $5,000 shy of

their fundraising goal for the fireworks. “One hundred percent of all

money raised for the fireworks goes back into the fireworks show.”

Volunteers will be needed to help clean up the fairgrounds on Sunday,

and for those who would like to organize other events throughout the

day/evening (gunny sack races, dunk tanks, anything to add to the

day’s fun) then please reach out to John.

“With all of the hubbub in the world today, I hope our local families

can find a way to tune out the busyness of life and spend the day with

their families; watching or participating in the parade, hanging out

at the fairgrounds eating good food for the evening, socializing with

others from our community and then enjoy what we hope will be a

KEEP LEARNING

WIDE RANGE OF DAY CAMPS AVAILABLE TO LOCAL KIDS

by COLIN ANDERSON

While it can be tempting as a parent to throw on a movie or let

the PlayStation or Xbox do the babysitting for an afternoon,

kids do best in summer when they are outdoors burning off

steam and interacting with others. When school is out it can be difficult

loading up activities while also balancing work schedule and other tasks.

Luckily there are several one-day camps available to kids happening

throughout the rest of summer.

The local 4-H program has partnered with the University of Idaho

Extension Office to offer a wide range of single-day camps for children

ages 8 to 14. Several camps are run out of the college’s Boundary County

Extension office, while others can be found at the fairground and other

convenient locations. Pre-registration is required, and if you wish to

register your child, or have any other questions, you can reach out to

4-H Program Coordinator Debbie Higgins at 208.267.3235 or by email at

deborahh@uidaho.edu.

Babysitting 101, June 15 & 16 (Ages: 11-14, Cost $30): Attendees will

learn the basics of caring for infants and young children as well as minor

first aid skills and healthy snack ideas. Lunch is provided on day two, and

kids receive a certificate upon completion as well as a resource kit to help

them in the future.

Cooking Camp, June 21 (Ages 8-12, Cost $15): Young chefs will learn the

basics of preparing a fresh meal through various cooking methods.

They will learn safe handling of food and the techniques for making a

nutritious meal.

Youth Farm Tour, June 30 (Ages 8-12, Cost $15): This camp is held at the

fairgrounds, where kids have the opportunity to get up close and personal

with animals commonly found on the farm.

A Day in Nature, July 8 (Ages 8-12, Cost $15): Day campers will head out

to the Kootenai Wildlife Refuge to learn about the unique trees, plants,

flowers, birds, insects and mammals found near their homes.

Beginning Macramé, July 13 (Ages 8-12, Cost $10): Campers are

introduced to the ancient art of Macramé. They will see examples of work

and learn the basics knots and hitches in order to create their own piece.

Tie Dye Fun, July 20 (Ages 8-13, Cost $10): Kids get hands on and turn

plain things into something bright and colorful all while learning how the

process works.

Camp Clover, Special Youth Camp, July 15 (Ages 5-9, Cost FREE!): The

theme of this all-day camp is “Growing Green.” Kids meet up at Snow

Creek Pond for a day of learning about nature—while in nature! Dress

for fun outside.

There’s nothing like a fun and educational day camp to keep the kids

learning and engaged all summer long!

LOOKING FORWARD TO THE FOURTH

THE INLAND NORTHWEST’S BEST WAYS TO CELEBRATE

INDEPENDENCE DAY THIS YEAR

BY TAYLOR SHILLAM

The biggest summer holiday is on

the way, and this year, the Inland

Northwest is more than ready to

embrace Fourth of July celebrations.

As COVID restrictions lift and holiday

gatherings begin to make their return, many

annual events that were passed by in 2020 are

returning, leaving the region ready to truly set

off Independence Day with a bang!

Across North Idaho and into Spokane, a

selection of celebratory events are in store for

Inland Northwest locals and visitors to take

their pick of July 4th festivities.

Coeur d’Alene’s Fourth of July Festival

& Parade

Coeur d’Alene’s annual Independence Day

celebration is back with a parade, festival in the

park and Independence Point fireworks show.

The Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce

reported the board has decided in favor

of scheduling the city’s annual two-day

celebration of Independence Day.

Last year’s festivities and parade were canceled

due to COVID-19 safety precautions and

restrictions. This year, Coeur d’Alene brings

back the community event that annually boosts

the economy along with the spirits of locals and

visitors to the area.

The weekend-long, family friendly event

will kick off in City Park on Saturday, July 3.

Vendors and carnival rides will be set up in the

park from noon until 7pm that day.

Following tradition, the parade will kick off

at 11am on the 4th, starting on 15th Street

and supported by vendor booths, music and

another day of family friendly activities in the

City Park, with the fireworks display at dusk

presenting the holiday’s grand finale over Lake

Coeur d’Alene.

No COVID restrictions are placed on the

event, although the Coeur d’Alene Chamber

encourages attendees to maintain safe practices

while enjoying the holiday.

“As always, it is your right to assess the risks

involved, take your own precautions, and

come to your own conclusion as to whether to

participate in social activities at this time,” they

announced.

Independence Day at the Coeur d’Alene

Resort

The Coeur d’Alene Resort’s 4th Fest is back,

offering an evening of family friendly activities

culminating in Coeur d’Alene’s fireworks show

on the lake.

Ring in the holiday with a lakeside picnic,

with the resort offering a dinner buffet, live

entertainment, and, of course, the celebratory

fireworks show. Tickets are available online,

with options available for all ages (plus,

children aged 2 and younger dine free).

Festivities begin at 6pm, with live music

beginning at 8pm and the City of Coeur d’Alene

fireworks show kicking off at 9:45pm.

Stay tuned online and on social media as the

dinner menu and additional details will be

released in the coming weeks!

will be asked to leave a parking space between them and the car next to

them. There will be approximately 1,700 parking spaces available for use

between the four locations.

to spend the evening downtown will be encouraged to enjoy the Pavilion

Lights Show.

Focus on Living the Way You Want

Homestead and solar designs to bring peace of mind

By Jillian Chandler

“I

have no fear of building where others say it’s impossible. Anything

is possible once it’s done.”

A life spent serving others is what inspired Rick Phebus to pursue

a new, fulfilling path, off-grid path. “I spent my life serving others, and that

is not something I’m willing to stop doing,” he shares. “In the Army, I was

always leading units to establish camps literally anywhere in the world—so

why not expand it and tie in my education?”

With degrees in forestry, land surveying and wildlife biology, plus time

spent teaching and undergoing survival training in the Army—and a

life living mostly off grid—it all made sense. In February of 2021, Rick

introduced Off Grid Unlimited to Boundary County.

Building an off-grid home can be an overwhelming experience, and Rick’s

number one goal is to help you in creating your dream homestead in the

most friendly and effective manner possible, while properly communicating

with the client every step of the way. With his knowledge and experience,

and connections to some of the best electricians, plumbers, excavators,

carpenters, well drillers and log home building sources, Rick ensures a

seamless process—all the way to the finish line.

Though the current market is primary for solar, which is what Off Grid

Unlimited caters to, Rick is working with partners on bringing other

alternative energy resources to the area—think wind, geothermal and

hydroelectric.

Due to the fact that Rick can custom tailor designs across the board (he is

also a licensed general contractor), he can tie in all the additional things

people forget (or regular contractors don’t manage) when building their

homestead—like the water sources, how to build a root cellar, how to get

paid for timber, and work with forest management. “There is a lot more to

off-grid homesteads than slapping a solar panel on a roof,” he says.

Rick shares that working in areas where absolutely “nothing exists” has

been the hallmark of his career through the Forest Service, Park Service

and Army. “I can literally help anyone who needs it. If I can’t help them, I

know who can. It’s identical to my time in the Army as a First Sergeant—

with the added benefit that I can think more outside the box.”

After the initial conversation to discuss the client’s goals, Rick then travels

to the job site to evaluate for improvement and installation. “It’s a good bit

like being a cross between a combat engineer and Bear Grylls,” he smiles.

“Off-grid clients like to be remote.”

208.627.3236

OffGridUnlimited.com

Through Off Grid Unlimited, Rick is able to provide better than retail

prices, as he has built strong business relationships, working through

distributor/wholesale agreements with manufacturers of the industry

standard products.

Rick attributes the fast success of his new business to his friends, family and

mentors, and he is proud to have the opportunity to own a business and

offer his services right here in Bonners Ferry. “The people here stick together

when it’s bad. While the rest of the country is tearing itself apart, our county is

standing strong,” he says. “People here are not afraid to work and build and be

good to one another.”

If you are interested in making the move to solar, you can call the office or

schedule an appointment online today. Don’t wait! It’s time to focus on living

the way you want, and you will have peace of mind thanks to Rick’s expertise in

homestead and solar designs.

“In the end, I save the client time, money, and offer insights based on my

experiences across the world.”

“I spent my life serving others, and that is not something

I’m willing to stop doing. In the Army, I was always

leading units to establish camps literally anywhere in the

world—so why not expand it and tie in my education?”

NOTORIOUS

NUPTIALS

WEDDING BELLS RING OUT STORIES OF EMPTY

CAMERAS, BROKEN ZIPPERS AND A DRUNKEN

ROAD TRIP TO MEXICO

BY DAN AZNOFF

Author’s note: The following collection of anecdotes are excerpts from an

upcoming book tentatively titled "Notorious Nuptials." Each of the stories

have been sourced with members of the wedding party. Be advised: Some

of these wedding stories date back more than 50 years.

Weddings are the source of memories that can last

a lifetime.

Every marriage ceremony is unique in the collective

reminiscences of the people who were involved. They

generate emotions ranging from the father of the bride, who reluctantly

gives away his little girl, to the maid of honor, who stands aside as she

loses her best friend to a man that she has slowly come to accept as part

of her own extended family.

Emily Norgaard of Mukilteo, Washington, can still remember the words

of caution that her father uttered when the two most important men in

her life faced off in the aisle during her own wedding procession.

“My father horrified by my soon-to-be-husband when he warned him

that he was giving the bride away,” she remembered. “He (my father)

made it clear that his store did not offer an exchange or return policy.”

If the shoe fits

The ring bearer forced Delores Dobson of Anaheim, California, to

delay her ceremony while the mother of the 6-year-old boy rushed out

on a Sunday morning to buy her son dress shoes that actually fit his

young feet.

“How does a 6-year-old who wears a child’s shoe fit into a size 13 men’s

shoe?” the bride asked rhetorically. His mom had to buy a new pair.

“That was not a simple task on a Sunday morning,” explained Delores.

“Our wedding was 45 minutes late.”

Inevitable

Young people were responsible for the mess at the reception for Carlotte

and Rob Larson at the home of the bride’s parents. They agreed the

mishap was the result of a critical error in judgement.

“All the tables were taken up with food, drinks and gifts,” said Carlotte.

The bride explained that lack of table space eventually forced the punch

bowl to be moved to a low coffee table in the living room, just out of

sight of the adults in the room.

“So, it was not a surprise when the small children washed their hands in

the punch bowl,” she remembered.

Her new husband was more understanding.

“It was all okay. It was something we all should have expected,” Rob said

with a heavy sigh.

No Rx for dumb

As a medical professional, Dr. Larry Johnson thought he had anticipated

“every possibility that could go wrong” prior to his “very expensive”

wedding at the posh Beverly Hills Hotel in 1968.

Larry wanted every aspect of his wedding day to be perfect. That

included contracting with a professional photographer to document

intimate moments during the ceremony and at the lavish reception.

But the doctor was ready to seek legal help when he realized the socalled

professional had forgotten to load film into his camera. The good

doctor wanted to file legal action against the vendor.

“I wanted to sue,” Johnson said after some reflection. “But my ‘brilliant’

father-in-law said not to sue.

“He was wrong!”

Lost in translation

The third time was supposed to be the charm for Amber Palms,

32

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL 33


California, resident Joe Morris when he flew his fiancé and

the entire wedding party to Acapulco for a romantic seaside

ceremony in April of 2000.

The destination wedding seemed to be “muy bueno” until it

came time for the bride and groom to exchange vows. That

was when Morris looked down at the words he was expected

to recite.

“My wedding vows were all written in Spanish,” he remembered

with a sinister laugh. “I could not understand a word of what I

was supposed to say.”

Quick drink

A quick visit south of the border was also part of the

wedding story provided by Tom Margitan, who also resides

in Arbor Palms. An impromptu road trip became part of

the wedding plan when Tom realized his bride needed to

visit Mexico together with her soon-to-be-ex-husband for a

quickie divorce.

According to Tom, the husband agreed on the condition they

could stop for “a drink” along the way.

According to Tom, “a drink” to his wife’s former spouse really

meant a stop at every cantina and watering hole along the

highway. The threesome eventually made their way to Mexico

and back across the border into Nevada, where Tom was

legally able to marry his bride in Las Vegas.

Don’t mess with Mother Nature

The unpredictable weather in Seattle sent a spiritual

message to the bride and groom during the wedding of

Joel and Sharon Hoerner.

Their wedding day began on an ominous note when the

flowers for the ceremony were mistakenly delivered to the

wrong church, which caused the ceremony to be delayed

for more than an hour. As a result, Sharon’s sister Carlotte

and Joel’s sister Beth were prepared to walk up the aisle

empty-handed.

As it turned out, the missing flowers were a lucky twist that

gave the attendants a free hand because the formal dresses that

had been ordered were all too long.

“The bridesmaids each walked up the aisle with one hand

holding their bouquet and the other holding up their dresses,”

Sharon remembered in vivid detail. “The bridesmaids were

the so-called

professional

to load film

into his camera.

hunched over during the procession and then up four steps.”

That was when Mother Nature decided to get involved in

the April wedding by pelting the chapel with sheets of rain,

sleet and hail.

“At one point the hail hitting the roof was so loud we could

barely hear each other reading our vows,” Joel remembered.

The weather, however, did not take away from their happy day.

“The sun eventually broke through, and we had bright

sunshine all within the time of the wedding,” Sharon said

with a smile.

Ever the romantic, Joel accepted the changes to the weather

as a blessing.

“God was sending us a message that our marriage could

survive any storm.”

Looking back at his wedding day, Joel admitted that staging

a wedding in Seattle during April was probably not the

best plan.

An exclusive

The author of this article was a reporter in Los Angeles when he

contracted with an award-winning newspaper photographer

to document his own wedding in Newport Beach, California.

The problem was the photographer had never “covered” a

wedding before. The result was that the so-called professional

documented the wedding like a news event, which meant

every photo included the bride and groom.

“You would have thought we were the only people in

attendance,” said Dan, able to laugh about the blunder 41 years

after the fact.

Faux tropic

After living together for eight years, Greg Elwin and his fiancé

Stephanie decided that if they ever did get married, they

would exchange vows with their toes in warm tropical sand.

However, the former police chief made the practical decision

to save his money for the honeymoon by inviting their closest

friends and relatives to a clambake at Sunset Beach near the

Hood on the Puget Sound.

With their toes buried in some of the 200 pounds of pure

white sand imported for the occasion, the happy couple were

class assignment.

Missed it by that much

Melinda Cavalleto of Old Town Mukilteo can still recall

glancing over her shoulder during her ceremony long enough

to see her brother and father with their arms outstretched

prepared to catch her maid of honor as she swayed back and

forth. The officiant, she remembered, had apparently not

recovered from drinking too much at the rehearsal dinner the

night before.

“She ran up the middle aisle of the church and

threw up just as she was running out of the

church,” Melinda remembered, before adding,

“And yes, she is still my best friend.”

Double-crossed by the old double switch

Mary Smith can still laugh when she recounts

the series of blunders that took place with the

keys to her car following her wedding to her

beloved Richard at the Atwater Baptist Church

in Los Angeles in 1958.

“When we were ready to leave, my husband’s

friend had his car. That is when my husband

remembered that he had the keys to his friend’s

car that was parked in front of the church,”

she said with a huge smile. “The best man

was left holding a second set of car keys as

he watched the newlyweds jump into his car

and drive away.”

Mary went on to explain what the best man

did not know was that some pranksters

from the wedding party had already fiddled

with the car that was normally driven by the

bride and groom.

“When his friend jumped into our car, it

would not start because another friend had

disconnected the necessary wires.”

Measure twice, zip once

After refusing to be measured for his tuxedo,

retired teacher Julius Aznoff was not surprised

when the tuxedo pants reserved for his fatherin-law

were too narrow in the waist to fasten

when he arrived on the day of his daughter’s

wedding at the elegant Huntington-Sheraton

Hotel south of Pasadena in 1976.

When the father-of-the bride threatened to not

walk his daughter down the aisle, the groom

was ready with his response.

“The hell you’re not,” Julius snapped. “Pull

them up, button your coat and get out there.”

The stunned father turned to one of the

groomsmen to confide that he could not pull up

his zipper. With a smile, he was reminded that

his daughter’s wedding was not an appropriate

time to brag about the size of his anatomy.

Picture perfect

What could have been an emotional disaster for

a young bride in Harbour Pointe, Washington,

developed into a picture-perfect wedding day

that created memories she will cherish for

a lifetime.

Stephannie Stumpf admitted to being a “photo

fanatic” who wanted to document every

moment of her wedding day 24 years ago.

The image she envisioned suddenly went out

of focus two days prior to the wedding when

the groom’s father suffered a heart attack that

left him in the hospital when the couple were

scheduled to exchange their vows.

To guarantee a picture-perfect day, Stephannie

got on the phone with the hospital and received

special permission to take her wedding

photos at the hospital with the entire wedding

party, including her father-in-law dressed

in his tuxedo.

“So, our wedding party and the photographer

drove to the hospital before our wedding to

take the formal photos,” she remembered

lovingly. “I will forever be grateful that we had

that chance.”

Everybody has a wedding story, and there is still

time to add your story to "Notorious Nuptials."

TUMMY TIME

By Molly Radonich, LAT, ATC

It’s not just for babies

Eighty-six percent of Americans sit for their jobs all day. Then we

go home and sit at the dinner table, followed by sitting to watch

TV. We sit a lot, and generally most of us don’t sit up straight

either. This leads to forward head posture, curved shoulders and

a rounded spine. This can tighten up the muscles in the front of our body

and makes the muscles in the back really weak.

The muscles in our back help with posture and the ability to move our

spine. If we let those become weak and stiff, we are predisposed to having

back pain and other issues.

So, what can we do about this? When babies are growing and developing,

we have them do “tummy time” to help strengthen their back muscles

and encourage proper development of the spine. Though adults are done

growing, it is still beneficial to be in positions in which we are on our

stomachs. This position is good to help encourage extension of the spine

and strengthen your posterior muscles.

"How should I do this at home?" There are several ways to safely perform

prone strengthening and stretching exercises.

The first thing to try is what physical therapists call “prone on the elbow.”

To perform this motion, start on your stomach, and prop yourself up with

your elbows directly under your shoulders. Let your glute muscles (the

muscles on your sit bones), relax and take deep breaths. If you feel sharp or

radiating pains, discontinue exercise and seek medical advice. This exercise

will help with low-back and mid-back extension and help strengthen your

posterior neck muscles.

Once you feel confident with the prone on elbows exercise, you can move

HEALTHY TIP

SUMMER SKIN-CARE

The cracked, dry skin of winter is behind us. But now with the sun shining

and spending more time outdoors embracing the warmth, it's important

to properly prepare your skin and keep it glowing. Stay hydrated,

exfoliate and wear sunscreen daily—even if the weather is overcast.

And don't forget to protect those lips with a lip balm or sunscreen with

a minimum of 20 SPF.

to a cobra pose. This pose is very similar, but

you will be actively moving up and down. For

this pose, you will start on your stomach as

well, and place your hands underneath your

shoulders. Keeping your elbows tucked in at

your sides, lift up and leave your hips on the

ground. For this exercise, make sure you inhale

on your way up and exhale on your way down.

This exercise helps to strengthen your back

and neck muscles while stretching out the

front of your body. Make sure you are keeping

your glutes relaxed. Stop if you feel pain or

radiating symptoms down your back, and seek

medical advice.

Once you feel confident with those two poses,

you can move onto the Superman pose. This

strengthens many of your posterior muscles

including hamstrings and back muscles. To

perform this pose, start on your stomach. Lift

your head, arms and legs off of the ground,

leaving just your hip bones and stomach on

the floor. You can inhale up and exhale on your

way back down, or you can hold this position

for 30 seconds and repeat three times. Make

sure your head is in a neutral position and you

are not straining to look up or down.

If you spend a lot of time at a computer or a

desk, I would encourage you to spend some

time on your stomach to promote extension

of the spine. A rounded spine is very hard to

correct once muscles have gotten accustomed

to a slouched position—and can lead to pain

and injury. Try to spend 10 minutes a day on

your stomach to keep you standing tall for a

long time!

UNFORGETTABLE OUTDOOR EXPERIENCES AWAIT IN NORTH IDAHO’S BACKYARD

by Taylor Shillam

The Inland Northwest is home to endless opportunities for outdoor adventure. While this is no secret to the region’s residents or

visitors, North Idaho’s adventures include several hidden gems that could be overlooked by even the most active locals.

Local skaters, climbers, adrenaline junkies, and those simply seeking a new experience, can find what they’re looking for while

staying close to home, with a selection of big adventures just a short distance away. North Idaho is the home of several high-quality venues

designed to take guests to new heights with zip lining, ropes courses and treetop adventures.

Coeur d’Alene Adventures

If there’s an outdoor adventure you’ve had your eye on, Coeur d’Alene Adventures likely offers the chance to finally try it. Their selection of

over nine different adventures includes fly fishing and spin fishing trips, whitewater rafting and horseback riding.

Their scenic rafting trips offer full-day and half-day options, departing seven days a week just across the Idaho/Montana border. Guided

fishing trips are offered on Hayden Lake and the Coeur d’Alene River, guided by knowledgeable local rafting and fishing guides.

The eco-friendly company is completely paperless, taking reservations only by phone or online, and taking extra measures like sourcing

locally homemade lunches and utilizing solar panels to power their activities and their adventure shop located on the Clark Fork River. They

also offer equipment rentals for those looking to take their adventure plans into their own hands. CdAAdventures.com

Mica Moon Zip Tours & Aerial Park

Mica Moon is home to famous zip line tours and “the Northwest’s best aerial park,” promising excitement for nearly every age

group and occasion.

Each three-hour zip line tour takes guests along Mica Moon’s signature course through forests, across the company’s private

valley, and through a bit of history as it passes camps where moonshine was produced during the prohibition era. The tour

includes two short hikes and a bird’s-eye view of some Northwest scenery and wildlife, with guides leading the way.

Mica Moon describes their aerial park as a treetop wonderland full of obstacles with varying degrees of difficulty.

“Think Ewok village, but better,” their website reads. The feel of an Ewok village combines with the opportunity to unleash

your inner Ninja Warrior with varying height-defying challenges to choose from, including a wine barrel bridge and high-rise

tight ropes.

Ages 6 and older are welcome to participate in Mica Moon’s zip line tours, treetop adventures or a combo tour, with

packages available for youths, adults and seniors, along with group discounts and additional opportunities for team building,

corporations and date nights.

“We will offer night tours, fall color tours, even enchanting twilight tours … that take advantage of intimate, panoramic redstreaked

sunsets,” Mica Moon states. Located in Liberty Lake, Washington, it’s a short drive to the Mica Moon headquarters

for your family, work or date night outing! MicaMoon.com

Tree to Tree

Located in Athol’s Farragut State Park, Tree to Tree is a site for family friendly aerial adventure, with obstacle courses including

Tarzan swings, an aerial skateboard, zip lining and more.

The park hosts more than 100 activities, divided into color-coded courses to accommodate both youths and adults. The courses

progress in difficulty, each designed to test balance while encouraging both mental and physical strength. Now open for the

year, the park has COVID-19 policies and procedures set in place, with select mask-required locations on the property, and

reservations required for each adventure. TreetoTreeIdaho.com

using lighter platforms for healthier trees.

Participants aged 7 and older are welcome on the award-winning

courses, rated by Trip Advisor as Coeur d’Alene’s number one outdoor

activity. ZipTimberline.com

Coeur d’Alene Skate Park

The 14,000-square-foot Coeur d’Alene Skate Park has attracted skaters

from across the region since its completion in 2017. A community

effort from local skateboard and biking enthusiasts brought on

the funding and construction of the new skate park after over 25

successful years at its original location. With a prime location on

Garden Avenue, just a quick distance away from North Idaho College

and the city beach, Coeur d’Alene Skate Park provides a safe place for

young skaters to visit after school or during those long summer days,

for community members to gather, and for all ages to practice their

skills on their bike or board.

Millennium Skate Park

Post Falls’ skate park, located along the Centennial Trail at Greensferry

and 3rd Avenue, has something to offer for all skill levels. Complete

with a turf area, ramps, boxes and rails, the park welcomes skaters

from sunrise to sunset.

With so many adventures in North Idaho’s backyard offering new

perspectives on enjoying the breathtaking Inland Northwest, this

summer could be your chance to try a new adventure. Whether it’s

up in the trees, on a skateboard, or in the whitewater rapids, that

adrenaline rush you’re seeking is waiting for you!

Practice That Swing!

SUMMER BRINGS PLAYERS OF ALL SKILL LEVELS TO THE GOLF COURSE

by COLIN ANDERSON

It’s the great unconquerable game that we both love and despise. A

slight twist in the hips, movement of the head or proximity to the

ball and your shot might be heading for the woods, the drink, or the

beach. Still, when you line everything up just right, strike the ball cleanly

and smash a perfect drive down the fairway, or watch your approach shot

land softly just feet from the pin, there really is no feeling like a great

golf shot. Whether you’re a weekend duffer, retiree playing with friends,

scratch player, or just getting started with the game, every round of golf

is a challenge.

With the most stable weather of the year, summer is when the courses see,

by far, the most visitors. The weekend warriors come out of hibernation,

typically cruising in a power cart and taking down several nerve-calming

beverages throughout their round. The final tally isn’t always what’s

important to these golfers, rather the camaraderie amongst friends

after a long week of work, coupled with enjoying a great Northwest day

outdoors having fun instead of tackling yard work.

Still, others seek the serenity of a quiet round just after sunrise. In the

calm of the early morning, the crack of a tee shot seems to linger longer,

and getting in a quick 9 before most have even started their day gives a

great sense of pride to early risers.

No matter your skill set and the experience you hope to achieve, you are

very likely sitting just a short drive from a course that can provide what

you are looking for. If it has been some time since you last swung a club

or if you are new to the game, there are a few things on the to-do list that

will help ‘get you in the swing of things’ for prime summer rounds.

Anyone who has kept an eye on the PGA Tour over the past 20 years has

seen a pretty dramatic shift in player appearance. Gone are most of the

rail skinny and overly husky players, and most pro players today take

their fitness seriously. Even if making a tour isn’t your ultimate goal,

treating golf like an athletic event will almost certainly help improve your

game. While it’s tempting to pull up to the course, practice a few puts

then head to the #1 tee box and swing full speed, a proper warmup is key

to setting yourself up for success.

Stretch out your entire body. Roll your neck and shoulders, and take time

to stretch hip flexors, quads and calves. If you have time to hit the driving

range before your round, remember to start with wedges and low irons,

work your way up to the middle irons, and take just a few shots with the

woods and driver.

Between rounds, a day or two of yoga or stretching sessions is immensely

beneficial for flexibility. Simple bodyweight movements like

push-ups, crunches, squats and lunges will help balance

all the muscles utilized in your golf swing. For those

who want to get serious, there are many personal

trainers out there who can design a routine

specific to golfers.

Once you are on the course, know your

skill level and choose the proper tee

box. If you aren’t a low handicap,

don’t hit from the Championship

tee box. While you

don’t want to feel

rushed, pace of

play is important

to everyone

having fun. If

your ball goes out of bounds, spend just a minute or

two searching for it and, if it can’t be found quickly,

take a drop and move on. If the group behind you is

moving quicker, stop at the next tee box and let them

play through.

Finally, don’t be afraid to take advice from an expert.

Sometimes the smallest of adjustments can make a

world of difference. Trained PGA professionals at

almost every course can recognize flaws in your swing,

which, when corrected, will help you hit straighter,

longer, and lower your score.

It’s a wonderful time of year to be outside, and for

many, 18 holes is the best way to spend it. Remember

to be conscious of those around you, and also relax and

enjoy the game. You’re there to have fun, right?

A Couple Courses to Try:

Mirror Lake Golf Course

This 9-hole course is friendly for the beginner but still

challenging enough for the advanced golfer. Welldeveloped

trees line most fairways, and there are water

hazards to be aware of as well. The grounds crew works

hard each season to keep the putting surfaces fast and

smooth. The atmosphere is relaxed with beautiful

views of the Kootenai Valley and Selkirk Mountains

around every turn. You can pick up what you need at

the full-service pro shop and hone your skills on the

driving range and practice green. After your round,

enjoy a bite from the snack bar and a beverage from

the cocktail lounge.

The Idaho Club

Boasting Idaho’s only Jack Nicklaus Signature Design

course, the Idaho Club’s 18 holes take full advantage

of the surrounding beauty of the area. The course

flows naturally with the Pack River, so water is

found all throughout the course. Tucked in a valley,

the surrounding forests are also striking. It’s not

uncommon to come across deer, elk or even moose

during your round. Course members get the early tee

times, but the public is welcome beginning at 10:30am.

You can relax after your round back at the beautiful

clubhouse and enjoy a great meal or drink.

enjoying the summer weather while out playing on the water, and lucky

activities to keep you busy all summer long.

kayaking

fishing

The perfect way to explore nature from a different point of view is from a kayak, when you’ll

have the time and peace to take everything in while enjoying a healthy adventure on the water.

Kayaks can be used on any body of water, which make them ideal for exploring those hard-toget-to

spots your powerboat can’t go. There are many different types of kayaks ranging from

whitewater and recreational to inflatable, so visit your local outdoor adventure or watersports

store to find the right fit for you, and consider borrowing or renting first before you invest

your money.

Throw a line in from the boat or shore, and enjoy the rush when you get that first bite or

land the big one. If you’re looking for a true adventure, sign on for a fishing charter or fly

fishing class—there are a wide variety of options ranging from multi-day trips to scenic boat

tours into remote rivers or lakes. It’s a great opportunity to learn something new and have

an experience you’ll never forget. If you are headed out this summer to throw in a line, don’t

forget fishing rules and license requirements change depending on where you are, so make

sure you’re licensed and ready to go.

WASHINGTON’S

CASCADE LOOP

The Ultimate Summer Road Trip, Part II

By Marguerite Cleveland

Part II of the Ultimate Summer Road Trip begins by heading through farmlands toward the jagged peaks of the Cascade Mountains,

where you will make your first of two crossings. Highway 2 follows the Skykomish River in an area known as the Stevens Pass

Greenway, which is a National Scenic Byway as well. This drive passes through the charming small towns of Sultan, Gold Bar, Index

and Skykomish, each with its own local flair. A must stop for coffee is the cute Espresso Chalet, which is the home of Harry, the endearing

sasquatch from the movie “Harry and the Hendersons.”

Other must stops include Wallace Falls State Park and a hike to Bridal Veil Falls. Once you are past Skykomish the road begins to narrow

and climb up to Stevens Pass with its incredible views. There are stunning overlooks and picnic areas on the river throughout this drive,

so plan to take lunch with you to enjoy some time outdoors. After crossing Stevens Pass continue along Highway 2 through the stunning

Tumwater Canyon to Leavenworth.

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


CRUISE THE 25-MILE PAVED LOOP THAT

CIRCLES THE RIVER AND CROSSES TWO

BRIDGES FOR A BEAUTIFULLY SCENIC RIDE.

Leavenworth

Leavenworth is a cute Bavarian-themed town, which will make you feel

like you are in Germany or an Alpine village. There is so much to see

and do in town. Try some German food or pop into one of the many

tasting rooms for local wine or cider. With a main street closed to traffic,

it is a wonderfully walkable town. Schocolat offers handcrafted Belgian

chocolates that are a luxurious taste not to be missed.

The Leavenworth Reindeer Farm is a fascinating place to learn about

Caribou as well as the opportunity to feed them. Leavenworth is

also known for all of its outdoor recreation. Enjoy a tube float on the

Wenatchee River or hike on more than 800 miles of trails.

Plan to stay the night here at the Icicle Village Resort and Spa. It is close

enough to walk to everything in town but away from all the noise. The

onsite restaurant JJ Hills Fresh Grill has some Bavarian favorites as well

as a Northwest-themed menu. The outdoor patio has great views of the

Cascade Mountains.

Wenatchee

Wenatchee sits at the confluence of the Wenatchee and Columbia rivers.

Visit the downtown National Historic District with plenty of boutiques,

galleries and restaurants. The Pybus Public Market is located on the

Columbia riverfront. Rent bikes at the market and cruise the 25-mile

paved loop that circles the river and crosses two bridges for a beautifully

scenic ride. Head into the market for local farm goods, artisanal foods,

restaurants and shops. Select some refreshments and either dine in or

pick up a picnic to enjoy in the Wenatchee Riverfront Park.

Chelan

Lake Chelan is a popular summer vacation destination for Western

Washingtonians looking for summer sun. The stunning lake is

surrounded by orchards and vineyards. In recent years, the area has

become known for wine as well. The Lake Chelan AVA is known for its

unique terroir due to ice age glaciers and the “lake effect,” which creates

mild temperatures with a longer growing season. There are more than

30 wineries and tasting rooms.

For a unique adventure take the Lady of the Lake ferry from Chelan to

Stehekin. This darling hamlet can only be reached by boat, helicopter or

hiking. It makes a perfect day trip, or you can stay overnight. There are a

lot of hikes, including the lovely Rainbow Falls. No trip here is complete

without a stop at the Stehekin Pastry Company with its wide selection

of delectable treats and breakfast or lunch offerings. They even have a

cabin for rent.

Beebe Springs Nature Area

As you leave Chelan make sure to stop at the Beebe Springs Nature

Area just north of the Beebe Bridge. The park overlooks the Columbia

River and has 2 miles of ADA-accessible trails that weave around the

marshy area where Beebe Creek flows into the Columbia River. The

park is adorned with metal sculptures created by artist Virgil “Smoker”

originally lived on this land. Pateros is a good spot to gas

up and stock up on snacks.

Once you turn onto Highway 153 you will see the Cascade Mountains in

the distance. The terrain will gradually change from high desert hills to

wooded areas filled with Ponderosa pine and Douglas fir. The first stop is

the quaint artist community of Twisp. Over 100 artists call the Methow

Valley home, and you can see some of their work in the art galleries of

Twisp. You’ll also find live music, theater and maybe even a poetry reading

on a street corner. When you head into town you will see the campus of

TwispWorks, which helps local businesses get established. Stop at their

Methow Valley Goods store and shop over 70 artists, makers, producers

and creatives.

The faux western town of Winthrop is very well done. With its wooden

boardwalks you really feel like you are in the Wild West. Spend some time

exploring the town. To add to the western experience, book a horseback

ride or go tubing on the Methow River. Downtown offers a variety of

restaurants, shops and breweries. If you want to support a hyper local,

make a visit to the Old Schoolhouse Brewery. The beer is made using

unfiltered North Cascades water and local hops. Local ranches supply

lamb and beef for their burgers, while all dressings and sauces are made

in house. The patio beer garden overlooking the river is the perfect place

to enjoy this bounty. Before you leave town visit the Homestream Park,

which also has sculptures by Marchand on an interpretive trail.

North Cascade National Park

The route takes you through Mazama before climbing into the North

Cascades. The Cascade Loop Travel Guide recommends the eastern

approach to Washington Pass for its superior views. This portion

of Highway 20 is known as the North Cascades Scenic Highway. It

traverses the North Cascades National Park. You will be surrounded by

glaciers (there are more than 300 in the park), jagged mountain peaks

with several above 9,000 feet in elevation. Keep your eyes peeled for

mountain lakes and waterfalls. Ross and Diablo look stunning, as their

turquoise-colored water stands out among the forested mountains. The

North Cascades National Park Visitor Center is located near Newhalem,

where you can get information from park rangers about local conditions,

trails and viewpoints. This park is one of the less visited in the National

Park System where you can enjoy the jaw-dropping scenery of a Glacier

National Park but without all the crowds.

Skagit Valley

Heading down from the mountains you will pass through the darling

towns of Marblemount and Concrete. The terrain will now turn into

rolling hills before you begin to see the acres of farmland that span the

Skagit Valley, where you will finish your trip.

HUNGRY?

HUCKLEBERRY PANCAKE BREAKFASTS ARE BACK!

By Jillian Chandler

The annual Huckleberry Pancake Breakfast, held

monthly, kicked off for its 2021 season on Saturday,

May 29. Presented by Bonners Ferry EAA Chapter 757

at Boundary County Airport’s Northern Air hangar,

the event will continue the last Saturday of each month

through September.

Those in the community are invited to bring their families and

gather with friends, and spend a morning socializing while

enjoying a delicious meal of scrambled eggs and sausage patties,

beverages … and, you guessed it, huckleberry pancakes!

Chuck Quillen, owner of Three Mile Café, generously donates a

majority of the food that's cooked up for the delicious Saturday

breakfasts. There is a suggested donation of $8 per person.

Proceeds from each Huckleberry Pancake Breakfast go to

benefit scholarships for student pilot training at Northern Air.

Help a young future pilot earn their wings! Many of the students

earn their wings and go on to careers in aviation—and some

have even made their way back to the airport where they are

now instructing the next generation of airmen and women!

You still have four opportunities to enjoy a wonderful meal

while supporting youth scholarships. Mark your calendar for

the upcoming breakfasts: June 26, July 31, August 28 and

September 25.

Due to the continued health and safety concerns amid the

pandemic, organizers have spread tables out to allow for more

social distancing, while those preparing and serving the food

wear gloves and follow strict sanitation guidelines.
