leaves are beginning their

transformation, brightening

nature with their deep hues of red and gold

before making their way to the ground for

children to play in—and adults to clean up.

Life has slowed down a bit, as we breathe in

the fresh, cooler air, reflecting on the beauty

of the season.

The days continue to grow shorter, and

our hearts begin to prepare for the holiday

season, when we can once again gather with

our loved ones and reminisce of the many

blessings we’ve experienced during the

course of the year.

It’s time to bundle up and breathe in a big

sigh of relief, as you’ve made it through

three quarters of the year!

In our October issue of Bonners Ferry

Living Local, you’ll explore some wonderful

stories sure to brighten these cloudier,

darker days. From our feature article,

highlighting United Way and its immense

impact on the local communities it serves—

including right here in North Idaho—to our

Good News, shining a light on our beloved

library, as well as our Life and Community

articles, sharing the excitement of the Dance

Club at the Pearl, and a heartfelt farewell to

the beloved Yoder's Market, there’s so much

to appreciate here at home. In addition, our

Fall Decorating Drama for 2021

KEEP IT LIGHT AND SIMPLE

By Deann Hammer, Interior Designer

As the light turns golden outdoors and the leaves follow, it

is the time of year to begin to look inward into our homes

and prepare for comfort during the cooler months ahead.

Fall decorating has taken on a new twist to coordinate with

the grey, white and softer home colors of today. Ditch the

classic pumpkin colors of heavy oranges, browns and reds for fall, and

opt for a lighter variation of the theme this year.

Floral arrangements that include grasses from your yard that are starting

to seed and dry mixed with larger seed pods and protea (found online

from Hawaiian online sources) will last indoors for many months and

add rich natural texture and color to your decorating theme. Adding

herbs from the garden such as large sage leaves, chive, parsley and dill

will enhance the aroma and also add color.

Floral arrangements can be made in large ceramic urns with tree

branches for extra height on fireplace hearths, kitchen tables or foyer

tables. Drying hydrangeas are also nice to add, bringing in soft color to

the mix.

I like to stuff a pomegranate or two into my arrangements for color (wire

them in on a stick), and let them dry in the arrangement until Christmas

when I change themes.

Fall front door wreaths don’t have to be laden with Halloween trinkets.

Go for a more sophisticated fall look with a wreath brimming with

natural elements from outdoors such as thistle, seed pods, grasses and

dried flowers. You can buy them finished online or make your own with

a grapevine wreath base, wire and a glue gun. Add a velvet or textured

ribbon at the top of the piece to hang your wreath. Brass wreath hangers

lay on the top of your door and are also a nice addition, alleviating the

need for a nail in your door.

Light up any room with a glass baby with tea light (always best in groups

of three or more), or use battery-operated candles on timers that turn

on at dusk (average run time is four hours) and turn themselves off.

Battery-operated candles are terrific for hard-to-reach places like the

top of a cabinet, foyers and hallways that are not often traveled, and

lighting for shelves that cannot handle the heat of a regular candle. Avoid

any fluorescent or LED blue light bulbs in your home’s light fixtures

or lamps in the winter. Warming up your lighting to look like warm

candlelight is the name of the game.

Outdoor lighting is important to expand the view from your home at

night. Replace any burned-out exterior landscaping bulbs and clean

solar lights to prepare for winter. String Edison bulbs or white Christmas

lights in your trees for extra outdoor lighting. Battery-operated candles

are also terrific in lanterns by your front door or outdoor seating areas.

Make sure they are covered or brought inside when the rain or snow

starts.

Bring in a chunky knit throw for your sofa in neutral colors to add

warmth, texture and style to any room. Faux fur throw blankets are

still on trend but in lighter colors this year (ditch the orange and black

cheetah print) and go for snow leopard, white fox or faux shearling.

Bundle up and enjoy the season!


PASSION, PURSUITS, AND

FARMERS MARKET

WAFFLES

What happens when competing

passions try to steal our joy?

By Trish Buzzone

Thinking Partner, Executive Director

The John Maxwell Team

Shortly after my husband, Bob, and I moved to Sandpoint, we were

cruising over the Long Bridge, and I noticed something unusual

happening in the water. People—a lot of people—were swimming along

the bridge. I asked around, and as a longtime scuba diver and recreational

swimmer, excitedly added the Long Bridge Swim to my “Gonna do it!” list.

Recently, I was facilitating a group session, and I asked everyone to tell us

what they would do if they knew they would not fail. When it came around

to me, I was reminded of the promise I made myself years ago, and I shared

with the group that I was going to do the Long Bridge Swim next August.

Now, my dream had a date and a group of people gracious enough to hold

me accountable. That made it a goal. First step was to pour some energy

into my passion. The day of this year’s swim, I cruised across the bridge and

watched the people in the water. I felt an intense longing to jump in that

water and swim with them. I didn’t, because I knew it was not my time—not

yet. I wouldn’t have made it, because I’m not in the shape I need to be to

swim 1.75 miles. Instead, I channeled that longing into the energy that is

motivating me to prepare for next year.

That preparation includes committing to moving my body every day, to

increase my strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness, and it includes

moderating my diet in order to be fitter and stronger. That last part is a tough

one for me … especially this time of year. I love the fall and winter “holiday

season” … all the feasts and treats, parties and drinks. From October to

January, everywhere we go, everywhere we turn, there are opportunities

for excess: Rich, delicious entrees and apps, desserts, drinks … and those

fabulous Farmers Market waffles. Crispy, sugary, huckleberry, whipped

cream—so delicious! And, better still, we enjoy these delights surrounded

by friends and family. That dynamic social aspect of holiday feasts brings

me such joy.

And, yet, as I continued to think about the upcoming celebratory season, I

could feel my goal of swimming the bridge next August crashing up against

my desire to indulge in my love of celebrating good food in good company.

The longer I thought about it, the more I felt my joy slipping, as my self-talk

grew more negative: If I indulge in one of these passions, I’ll have to give up

the other. That deprivation mindset, intent on stealing my joy, tempted me

to pit those passions against each other. It’s sacrifice one or the other, Trish.

Can’t have both! You won’t give up on the swim, so, forget the waffles; it’s

rabbit food and water for you!

I could feel those joy-stealing messages building up inside me, and I put

a stop to it quickly—cancel, cancel—I will enjoy this season and get back

in swimming shape. I already know what to do: Move more, eat clean and

healthy. So, that’s where I started.

I know how the ideas and messages we allow to play in our minds affect

our attitudes and our outcomes. I know the steps that work for me,

and I was ready to get over my doubts and fears. So, as soon as I felt

those negative thoughts encroaching, I stopped that train and switched

tracks: Get clear on what I want. Banish the confusion. Connect with a

thinking partner.

Once I was clear on what I would achieve and the confusion was in my

rearview, I reached out to a joint mobility and wellness consultant who is

helping me shift my thinking around food and get more out of moving

every day. As I’ve taken action toward growth, the doubts, frustrations and

fears that come with a deprivation mindset are being pushed out by passion

and enthusiasm. I have a clear goal, someone to challenge and inspire me,

and I’m excited to celebrate every milestone.

What about you? What are you struggling with? What messages are trying

to steal your passion and stop your growth? And what messages are feeding

your motivation and momentum?

GOING BACK TO THE LIBRARY

DOORS ARE ONCE AGAIN OPEN TO THE BELOVED

BOUNDARY COUNTY LIBRARY

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

"AFTER HAVING

THE OPPORTUNITY

TO COME BACK,

I REALIZED HOW

MUCH I MISSED

WORKING HERE,

MY LIBRARY FAMILY,

AND MEETING

NEW PEOPLE."

no such thing as too many books,”

claims Boundary County Library. After

“There’s

reopening in July under the guidance

of Interim Director Sandy Ashworth, the Boundary

County Library continually proves it offers much

more than books alone.

Since 1913, Boundary County Library has become a

staple within the Bonners Ferry community—a hub

of enrichment, education and culture. Named 2017's

"Best Small Library in America" in Library Journal, the

library has grown in terms of location, size, member

count and resources since its humble beginning

as a wheelbarrow transporting donated books

around town. The library reopened its doors this

summer, amidst the pandemic and upon a looming

budget deadline.

At the hub of the library's growth and reopening

success has been Sandy, who came out of retirement to

help restore the library she had already dedicated over

30 years of her career to, emerging from retirement to

act as interim director. “I volunteered to step in and

help as a trainer and consultant,” she explained.

Now 80 years young, Sandy rejoined the library in

March of 2021, when the deadline for the following

fiscal year’s budget was fast approaching and the

library remained without a permanent director.

With her budgeting experience and extensive

knowledge of the library’s systems, she returned

to her old home without hesitation. “The budget

deadline was a strong incentive to move forward,” she

shared. "There’s no delaying a deadline set by the state

tax commission."

She found herself picking up right where she left

off—and enjoying the process. “After having the

opportunity to come back, I realized how much I

missed working here, my library family, and meeting

new people,” she said. “The job was such a blessing,

and I was happy to come back to the opportunity.”

Upon her return as interim director, Sandy dove in to

help the library’s reopening stay on track, including

book orders and sorting new materials. “We’re

building on past successes,” she said, “with the goals

of increasing capacity, capability to provide services

and staying relevant.”

Sandy has seen the library’s growth from a close

perspective, especially in the realm of technology.

With internet services becoming increasingly

accessible, the library has been able to significantly

expand its digital offerings. “We have more online

services, education and trainings. We’ve joined the

statewide consortium with over 100,000 eBooks and

online books,” she said.

The library hosts a long list of programs and services,

including digital learning, tutoring, children’s

programs, Nerf Wars and Chess Club. Its calendar

is lined with immersive story time events like Harry

18

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


Potter Day and Tolkien Day. It’s no surprise the

library maintains its dedicated following and

strong community feel.

“The public was very happy we were open, and

we were happy to be open,” Sandy said of the

community's warm reception to the library's

reopening this past July.

Sandy’s retirement from the library began

October 1, 2016, although she never stayed

far away after leaving. She used her time to

organize her own book collection—a library

of her old favorites kept at home. “I never lost

my interest in how things were going in the

publishing industry,” she said. Sandy would

come in and out of the library frequently

during those few years.

As the library prepares to appoint a new

director in the coming weeks, Sandy continues

to wear a lot of hats. “I’ve done every job

here throughout the years,” she said. She still

finds herself working in every aspect of the

library’s operations, from the orders desk

to sorting children’s books. Her focus is on

building on the success already garnered by the

Best Small Library in America, even through

difficult circumstances.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience and

understanding with the long delay,” Sandy

shared of the library reopening its doors amidst

the pandemic. “Things out of our control took

longer than we expected.”

Now operating Tuesday through Saturday

from 9am to 5pm, it holds longer Saturday

hours than it ever has before. This schedule

coincides well with the four-day week schedule

within the school district, Sandy explained; a

schedule that leaves students with more time

to explore the library.

For students, adults and readers of all kinds,

the Boundary County Library is a special place.

More than a library, it’s a center of community

where much can be celebrated: education,

culture, progress and play. The growth the

library has experienced since 1913 is only

slated to continue, especially with the support

of its community and of dedicated individuals

like Sandy, a true example of the lifelong impact

a library can make.

A REASON TO DANCE

TWO PROGRAMS OFFERED AT THE PEARL THEATER

by JILLIAN CHANDLER

Nancy Genys has been dancing since she could walk, first

by standing on the top of her father’s feet while dancing

around the living room doing polka and waltz to music

playing on the record player. She began formal dancing lessons

at the age of 5 until she was in high school, and then again while

in college. “I did ballet for many years, but once in college, my

focus became social and folk,” she shares. “My husband and I

were assigned to teach a folk-dance class together at BYU—that’s

how we met!”

In addition to dance, Nancy excelled in choir and acting

throughout her childhood and teen years, even writing her own

plays. She has produced more than 18 shows (having written the

script, produced the music and done the choreography). “I love

the arts,” she smiles. “Since I have been in Bonners Ferry, I have

written more than 30 songs!”

Thanks to Nancy, in partnership with the Pearl Theater, there’s

a reason to kick up your heels and start dancing, as the Dance

Club was introduced just last month, as well as Talent Team

Performing Arts.

“Both programs have received positive feedback and happy

participants (and excited ones who are new). My hope is for

students to enjoy themselves and gain skills and confidence,”

she says.

Talent Team Performing Arts teaches youth how to sing, dance

and act. It is Nancy’s wish that it will bless the youth in this

community and, through the arts, bless the lives of others. As for

Dance Club, students will be taught the skills in styles such as

swing, waltz, fox-trot, cha-cha, as well as line dancing and oldfashioned

American folk dancing such as Virginia Reel, Jessie

Polka and the Salty Dog Rag. “Dances have such diverse music,”

affirms Nancy. “To be able to have skills to dance to almost

anything is such a confidence builder, not to mention fun!”

The cost of registration is dependent upon the class, ranging

from $120 to $160 per semester. “Each semester is four months,

but with the extra classes for the performing groups, it's like

a five-month session for the price of four months,” explains

Nancy. Class length for the Talent Team is one to one-and-ahalf

hours, while Dance Club is two hours every other week,

rotating weeks between beginners and those more advanced.

Those interested in signing up can contact Nancy Genys via

email at TalentTeamPerformingArts@gmail.com or by phone

at 480.390.5790.

“My hope is that those who will benefit from this will come and

that, through our interaction together, we are all the better for

it,” she says. “Each child has something beautiful to share. I am

blessed by working with them. Hopefully, I will be a blessing to

them as well.”

THE FAMILY THAT SERVES

A blessing to the community

BY JOSHUA NISHIMOTO

After opening their store in 2010, Yoder’s Market has served

customers from Kalispell, Bigfork, Yaak, Spokane and

Coeur d’Alene, along with many locals from Bonners

Ferry. After 11 years of hard work and dedication to serving these

communities, Yoder’s Market announced in August that they would

be closing their doors at the end of September 2021.

“After taking a year to pray about it and with extreme challenges of

running a business these days, we agreed that we need to slow down

and close the doors to Yoder’s Market,” shared Henry Yoder.

While he and his wife Verna relished in their final month of Yoder’s

Market operations, they said they can’t help but have mixed feelings

about the closing of the store.

“It’s bittersweet,” Verna says. “We love this community. It just became

more and more difficult the last few years with COVID and everything.

I mean, we worked 80 hours a week for the last year.”

After 11 years of dedication, Verna couldn’t help but remember the

best times she had while working at Yoder’s Market.

“I will always remember the delight on people’s faces when they

purchased banana bread, potato salad, or any of our prepared meals,”

she said. “When people ask me if I could go back and do it all over

again, I say yes! It was worth it all. I love feeding people. There’s

nothing that makes me happier.”

Now that Yoder’s Market's doors have closed, Henry and Verna will

have more time to spend with their family, while also paying attention

to their other businesses, and finding ways to continue to bless

their community.

“We will continue operating Whole Saler, providing a large variety

of spices to 70 stores,” Verna said. “And we split Optimal Renewal

50/50 with our son Amos. We will continue to work with him on

that project.”

When asked what she would do next, Verna simply said, “I have

thought about this, and I don’t know. I still have my recipes, and I

haven’t decided. Maybe one day I will do something with them. I could

do a recipe book or take my goods to the farmers market.”

And with that, Verna has only a few parting words for a community

that they have served, who has indeed served them well.

“We would like to thank the community for all of the love and support

for the last 11 years, because it made every single day worth it,” she

said. “We have the best customers; it was absolutely awesome! We do

not regret owning the store for one bit. We are closing in triumphant

victory as a blessing to the community. Would we do this again? Are

we happy? Yes! I’m not sure what God has in store for us, but whatever

it is, it will hopefully be a blessing to the community.”

ATHLETE OF THE

month

Lexie Maas, Senior

by COLIN ANDERSON

Senior Lexie Maas started her love of athletics like many of her peers,

through Bonners Ferry Parks and Recreation. She tried several

sports and eventually landed in gymnastics. “I tried it and about

died. I have no idea why I continued, but I did and won state twice,”

she stated.

Lexie credits her time as a gymnast for helping her develop in her favorite

sport—volleyball. “Gymnastics is a very physical sport, and I believe if

I hadn’t pursued it, my sports career would’ve looked a lot different. It

taught me how my body works, what it can go through and how I can

push myself.”

After showing promise as a young player, Lexie made the high school

varsity team as a freshman. She was a libero (defensive specialist) the past

three seasons and is excited to now be an outside hitter for her final high

school season. Reaching her goal of becoming a front line player, despite

being one of the shorter members of the team, didn’t come without some

extra motivation. She recalled a time while in middle school that pushed

her to prove any doubters wrong.

“We were short a high jump girl, and I wanted to do it so bad. One of

the coaches asked in front of everyone if anyone wanted to fill it. No one

raised their hand. I raised my hand so excited, and the coach looked at me

and laughed and said I was too short to do a high jump.

“I was so mad, the kind of mad where you don’t think it possible you can

be that mad. I took that and I worked even harder. In all my sports I’ve

always been too short. So, I made it a point to work even harder. I could

still do everything the tall people could do; oftentimes better. I’ve been

only back row for three years in volleyball as their libero, or defensive

specialist, when I’ve been able to jump as high if not higher as our front

row girls.

So, this year, being able to be a front row girl definitely makes me feel like

my hard work went for something and someone is seeing it.”

Lexie has high hopes for the team this season. She maintains a 4.0

grade point average and hasn’t yet decided on the next chapter in her

life. A degree in psychology or the medical field are both possibilities.

As someone who’s been disrespected because of her height, she knows

the meaning of respect and how important it is to all aspects in life.

“Whether it’s coach, team captain, or the person who is new and has no

idea what’s going on, you show everyone respect. Treat people the way

you want to be treated. This applies to not only sports but your life, and

I’ll take it everywhere I go.”

Spokane Stage Reading: An Aviary for the

Birds of Sadness

On Thursday, October 14, the Spokane

Playwrights Laboratory will present its

inaugural staged reading, this year featuring

An Aviary for the Birds of Sadness. The fulllength

play by Tristen Canfield is described by

the organization as “a found family story about

a group of friends who must band together to

take care of one of their own during her darkest

days.” The show is deemed inappropriate for

audience members aged 13 and younger, as it

delves honestly into the realm of mental health.

The Spokane Playwrights Laboratory is

Spokane’s designated new script development

company, acting as a resource for playwrights to

provide chances to workshop their unfinished

drafts into complete production-ready scripts.

The show will be held at 304 West Pacific

Bye Bye Birdie presented by Out of the Shadows Theater

Out of the Shadows Theater exclusively casts actors with disabilities, so

that their abilities can take the spotlight on stage. Since 2016, the theater

has sold out multiple productions to stellar audience reviews. Every role

in its productions is played by an actor with a disability or special needs,

from cognitive to physical disabilities, who is accompanied by a shadow

actor onstage. Shadow actors provide coaching, reassurance and support

to their actors throughout the production.

This fall, Out of the Shadows takes the stage at the KROC with Bye Bye

Birdie, the most comedy-oriented production they’ve scheduled yet. The

show will take the stage for five shows, after much behind-the-scenes

preparation to make the shows as safe and successful as possible. Out

of the Shadows’ production of Bye Bye Birdie will hit the KROC Center

stage across two weekends: October 29 through 31 and November 4 and

5. The October 31 show will be a 2pm matinee showing, with the other

shows scheduled for 7:30pm. Full details and ticket information can be

found at OutoftheShadowsTheater.com.

Panida Theater’s Banff Virtual Mountain Film Festival

Sandpoint’s historic Panida Theater is offering access to the Banff

Mountain Virtual Film Festival this month for the chance to enjoy epic

mountain views from the comfort of your own home. Several options

are available for viewing, including the choice of two programs to buy

separately, as a bundle, or as a gift. Each film within the festival is new

and current for 2021, and 100 percent of the net proceeds from ticket

sales will go toward supporting the beloved Panida Theater. “Enjoy

the show and keep the Panida marquee lights burning bright,” the

theater encourages. Streaming access is available through October 24

at Panida.org.

The Inland Northwest theater scene presents a lot to look forward to

in the coming weeks. Whether you’re seeking a large-scale, in-person

production, a quieter, more intimate reading, or a virtual experience

from the comfort of your own home, look to our local venues to take care

of your entertainment needs from now through the holidays.

Theater has returned to the Inland Northwest, ready for your enjoyment

Fall into Sandpoint

Go Sandpoint making dream vacations, and staycations, a reality

By Colin Anderson

Sandpoint offers a truce slice of North Idaho heaven,

and has been written about and praised in newspapers

and magazines all across the country. Not only are the

surroundings both beautiful and serene, but travelers

to our area quickly fall in love with the small-town charm and

tremendous outdoor experiences. Visitors come from all over for

the experience and come to realize why USA Today has named

Sandpoint Most Beautiful Small Town in America. The mountains

and lake are a welcoming sight. So why not invite your out-of-town

friends and family to experience it for themselves and book your

stay through Go Sandpoint at the luxurious and affordable Lodges

at The Idaho Club or at one of three water-view condos—one in

downtown Sandpoint and the other two Hope? Or treat yourself to

a Sandpoint staycation of your own.

Nestled amongst the fairways of Idaho’s only Jack Nicklaus

Signature course, each home offers all the finest amenities. Open

floor plans allow guests to spread out for easy interactions with

family and friends while providing privacy within the three-, fourand

five-bedroom homes.

Imagine yourself preparing a meal on top-of-the-line stainless

steel appliances, then relaxing in your own private hot tub after

an afternoon on the lake, hiking the beautiful trails or meandering

quaint downtown and the local shops. Instead of a hotel wakeup

call, rise to a beautiful sunrise as you watch out your back

patio for deer, birds and other wildlife roaming the course and

surrounding forests.

At the Idaho Club, you can enjoy living life to the fullest no matter

what your agenda entails. Both families and corporate executives

have found it the perfect place to gather. Nestled along the shores

of Lake Pend Oreille, the fifth deepest lake in North America, it

is just minutes to Sandpoint or picturesque Hope, Idaho. With

home sites that offer incredible views, privacy and access to many

amenities, it is an escape to paradise.

As the cool autumn season has arrived, The Lodges at the Idaho

Club make for a perfect cozy retreat. You will not only have privacy,

but a great deal of space to spread out and enjoy one another’s

company. Homes can accommodate up to 14 guests, and there are

several floor plans available—depending upon your party’s size.

STANDING TOGETHER WITH ITS

COMMUNITY

UNITED WAY COLLABORATES TO BRING CHANGE

BY RACHEL KELLY

United Way has a mission to improve lives. They do

this by seeking out the un-touched or un-talked

about problems, using hands-on experience and

research-backed initiatives to solve them. While

United Way is a global nonprofit that functions all over the

world, this doesn’t stop them from being involved personally

within their separate communities. United Way believes that “to

live better we must live United.” Which means that they don’t shy

from working with their neighbors to address common issues, to

ensure the health, education and financial stability for everyone.

United Way’s worldwide mission is to “improve lives by

mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world

to advance the common good.” They do this by providing access

to basic needs, such as food, shelter and financial stability.

United Way also seeks to tackle transportation needs that inhibit

access to those basic needs. Those resources additionally provide

for health care and address domestic violence. The reach and

scope of United Way as an international nonprofit is huge, but

the focus is small. Funds and resources donated to a local United

Way are distributed locally—to local organizations and local

people. It’s no wonder then that the United Way in Northern

Idaho and Pierce County have individual local relationships,

initiatives and partnerships.

“Most people know United Way as a global organization. What

most people don’t realize is that we are a network of smaller

nonprofits,” says Mark Tucker, the executive director of United

Way of North Idaho. This is especially important, because this

means that United Way is operating according to local needs

heard from local people and organizations. There are larger

consistent methods that United Way in the Pacific Northwest

uses as a whole to assess smaller community needs, such as

ALICE. ALICE refers to the people within any community that

are Asset Limited, Income Constrained, and Employed. ALICE

works as a snapshot that allows each individual United Way to

assess its community needs and address systemic issues that

contribute to any shortages.

“The great thing about a local structure with local volunteers is

that we are able to identify and focus on our community’s greatest

needs,” says Mark. The staff at this locality is relatively small, but

their capacity for impact is increased through their partnerships.

Through the ALICE system as reference, United Way in North

Idaho has sought an understanding of their unique community

needs. This is the first step in any United Way venture and is

especially true in the counties of North Idaho. According to

ALICE, 41 percent of those in these communities are struggling

to make ends meet. Through their local partnerships, they seek

real solutions. Using both ALICE and local connections, North

Idaho has been able to identify their community's greatest

unmet need and proactively tends to that need through working

across sectors. Because their partnerships with local agencies

and providers have brought about a greater understanding of

how to approach the issue, United Way in North Idaho is in a

unique position. Not only are they able to provide research, but

they are also able to step in with funding.

Right now, North Idaho has identified childcare as

a large unmet community need. Since childcare is

the most expensive item in the budget for a family,

it often is the barrier to getting parents back to

work or working within the job that they prefer.

“As we dug deeper into the issue, we realized that

childcare workers are suffering themselves. Since

teacher pay is so low, turnover is high, and lowering

pay is not an option. With real estate having gone

up dramatically, relocating for expansion is out of

the question,” says Mark. What’s more, providing

childcare benefits the community as a whole.

Quality childcare prepares children for school

readiness, which means that kindergartners are

less likely to fall behind. Children who are not

able to keep up in school, that do not receive the

support they need, can often become delinquent.

This, in turn, means that schools lose tax revenue.

Loss of revenue, in turn, limits resources.

Even more urgently, providing quality childcare

supports businesses. When parents have consistent,

affordable childcare, both parents are able to go

back to work. Without this drain on their income,

they are able to use more of their income to

prepare for their future, invest in savings and pay

off debt. Employers consistently see childcare as

the top reason for tardiness or missed work. With

the current shift in the economy and workforce,

employers are beginning to change the way that

they see their employees. In turn, this affects how

they do business. With the current scarcity of

employees, employers are looking to invest into

childcare. Providing childcare in North Idaho

helps with recruitment and retention, as well as

fills a community need.

To move out of the current childcare crisis, United

Way of North Idaho approaches the problem

using two strategies: funding and direct service

programming. Using the Community Care Fund,

United Way funds nonprofits that are already

doing phenomenal work in the community.

Direct service programming is a straightforward

approach to address the crisis, where United Way

develops its own services to answer needs where

no services may be available. Examples include

the Ready! For Kindergarten, Bank on North

Idaho Financial literacy training, and the Family

Scholarship program. Of course, United Way also

uses collaboration. The Child Care Committee

developed through $100,000 in funds from

United Way in North Idaho. This committee has

developed relationships with childcare providers,

municipalities, educators and business leaders.

Everyone is working together, focused on ending

the childcare crisis.

United Way in Pierce County just celebrated 100

hundred years of local service in their area. They

are as historically a presence in the community as

much as the theatres, train station and harbors.

Celebrations have commenced throughout this

last year, beginning with a food drive and birthday

party in May. The ending celebrations finished

on September 21 with a free virtual rally. The

centennial celebration was part of an $8 million

centennial campaign series. Amanda Westbrook

of the CityLine talk show hosted the celebrations

in style, bringing participants back through the

rich history of United Way and culminating in a

look at what’s in store for the future. Participants

were treated to a first look at the Centennial video,

as well as given an opportunity to learn trivia and

win prizes. The spotlight has been on United Way

in Pierce County as they continue to rejoice in

their centennial year, but their everyday work in

the community has not ceased.

United Way’s long varied history in Pierce County

began in 1921 with the Federation of Social

Agencies. Partners in this building included local

churches, the Red Cross and Tacoma Community

Housing. Fundraising for 28 local charities and

social agencies continued throughout the years.

In 1951, $318,000 was raised and distributed, with

close to $2,500 awarded to the Girl Scouts. In 1956,

United Way’s fundraisers reached $1 million for the

first time. In 1976, $2 million was reached for the

first time, with $238,000 donated to its longtime

partner The Red Cross. 1984 saw $4 million

raised. In 1994, they broke $7 million. In 2000,

Joanne Bamford introduced early learning as a

community focus. In 2003, ABCD was established,

which provided dental services for low-income

communities. For several years after this, United

Way established itself as an advocate for early

learning, with $5 million raised specifically for

this. In 2013, 70 percent of United Way resources

were allotted for prevention, such as early learning.

They were able to fund prevention while still

addressing present needs such as food, shelter and

clothing. In 2016, two Centers for Strong Families

were established. The centers continued to raise

funds for services to families throughout the next

few years, with large donations made by the Kaiser

Permanente Foundation. In 2019, the Center for

Strong Families eventually established Resilient

Pierce County, which focuses on Franklin

Pierce and East Tacoma communities.

Today, United Way in Pierce County has

directed its focus on poverty, which they began

in 2017. This was also the year that United

Way held its first From Poverty to Possibilities

Summit. Using the ALICE approach, a

consistent research approach among all of the

United Ways in the Pacific Northwest, UWPC

has found out some information about present

needs within the community. According to

research, 23 percent of the families in Pierce

County are ALICE families. This number has

risen over the pandemic. That means every

one in five families are struggling to make

ends meet. United Way has done a lot in Pierce

County over its 100-year-long residence,

but recent research has shown that Pierce

County is struggling with a unique shortage

of employment combined with a decrease in

housing. Everything United Way is doing in

Pierce County is focused on addressing this

problem. United Way in Pierce County has

a goal of ending poverty for 15,000 families

by 2028. They will continue to do this by

partnering with local organizations and

nonprofits that provide for community needs,

in the hopes that, together, the community can

break down barriers toward self-sufficiency.

To say that the partnerships are fast and

widespread is an understatement. UWPC has

coordinated efforts in school districts, health

and human services, faith-based groups,

government agencies and individuals with

commitments to research forward action.

UWPC is continuing in its trend to be an active

part in meeting these families holistically,

where they’re at. This has been true for the

last 100 years, and will continue to be true for

the next.

United Way stands true to its mission to

“mobilize the caring power in communities

for children in Australia, and financial stability

in Denver, USA. Hundreds of thousands of

people receive these services and financial aid.

Many local organizations receive grants. This

has only been possible through unity. Not only

is the fulfillment seen in United Way’s unified

network of interconnected smaller nonprofits,

who mobilize among themselves, United Way

also creates cohesion in the communities they

serve by pursuing relationships, providing

funding, seeking out research, and gathering

together to hear directly from their community.

Approaches are vast and widespread, and they

are direct and impactful. Whether they are

large or small, personal or from afar, United

HEALTHY TIP

A HEALTHY HALLOWEEN

Halloween and all of its sugary goodness may be lurking just around the

corner, but that doesn't mean that you can't incorporate healthy ingredients

into your delightful and frightful goodies. Treat the kids to a platter of

Halloween-inspired snacks like peeled cuties with a sliver of celery as the

stem to create a pumpkin; banana, peeled and cut in half lengthwise, adding

mini chocolate chips for the eyes and "O" mouth for a friendly ghost; a bowl

of grapes for eyeballs. Healthy has never been more fun!


separate from non-ill members of the home,

and use a separate bathroom. Even if you

have mild symptoms, someone who gets

infected from exposure to you could develop

severe symptoms.

If you live alone, contact a friend or family

member who can provide support, run

errands and bring you groceries so that you

can rest and remain at home. It would be best

to avoid community spread by only leaving

home for a medical visit or emergency.

Eat and drink small amounts every few hours

when you are awake, even if you have lost

your sense of taste/smell, and you do not feel

hungry, or the food doesn't taste good. Take

all of your prescribed medicines.

Consider buying or borrowing a Pulse

Oximeter to check your oxygen saturation (on

ONE-POT MEALS TO THE RESCUE

The secrets of one-pot cooking

by RACHEL KELLY

Fall evokes a feeling of nostalgia, the perfect sweater weather. With the kids

back in school, we find our schedules cramped with evenings of catchup,

weekends of last-minutes, and a bustle toward bedtime. Fall cooking at

its best is made in one pot with very few dishes. With one-pot cooking, the

cleanup is easy, the product healthy and the cost minimal. Here is a step-by-step guide for

making your own one-pot meals.

Step One: Create your flavor base. Classic one-pot dishes require very little prep and are best slowly

cooked throughout the day. The general soup or stew requires a selection of root vegetables to add depth and

flavor. This is possible because fall plants prepare for winter by storing sugar in their roots. Chopping up and

sautéing root vegetables forces them to release their sugars into the oil, providing a base for a rich and savory

flavor profile. For Italian dishes (think red meat sauce and minestrone), chop up celery, onion, carrot and

garlic. For soups or sauces that are finished with cream, use the same base. For spicy meals, such as curry or chili

(green, red or white), skip the carrots and instead use mild or spicy peppers (seeds removed). As you continue to

experiment with various flavor profiles, you will figure out more and more what you like best. In general, however,

bases of soups and stews are made of carrots, onions, garlic, celery (or celery root) and/or peppers. Choose what you

want, chop up, and sauté in oil until fragrant.

Step Two: Choose your protein. If you’re a meat eater, your protein would be meat. Obviously. But! If you are vegetarian,

this would be beans or quinoa. Of course, there’s no hard and fast rule that restricts you from doing all or none of

these things. There are some basic principles here though that apply

to protein. Beans must be soaked in salt water overnight, but

canned beans can be added right in. When using meat,

choose meats that are fatty and boney—no boring

chicken breast here. Something low in fat that is

simmered in liquid amounts to bland, because

fat is delicious. For meats think ham hocks,

sausage, chicken thighs and T-bone steak.

After you’re done simmering your root veggies

42

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


until fragrant, remove or scoot to the edge of the pan. Then salt your

meat (if needed), and sear in the same pot until brown. The meat

doesn’t have to be cooked through.

Step Three: Now for the liquid. Whatever liquid you add can be twofold,

meaning that it could be both wine (used to get all the brown goop

off the bottom of the pan) and water. Or, you could have both broth and

tomatoes (as seen in minestrone). For stews, make sure that the liquid

only just covers the top, as much will cook off leaving a thick mixture.

For dishes with beans, use a little extra water. Those beans will soak up

all that excess. Use broth if you’re using a protein that doesn’t have a

whole bunch of flavor, such as beans, quick-cooking sausage or low-fat

chicken. Use water when making stews or sauces with proteins that are

packed with flavor, such as T-bone steak, beef tips or ham hocks. After

sautéing your root veggies and separately browning your meat, put it

all in the pot and cover with liquid. Let simmer on low (very low) or

put all ingredients in the crockpot. It’s done cooking when the protein

is cooked through.

Step Four: The finisher. Finishing your dish is done at the end for

things that only take a few minutes to cook. This can be a filler, such

as noodles (five-minute cook time) or rice (20-minute cook time). Or

it can be a garnish, such as rosemary or oregano. Or the finisher can

be added once the heat is turned off, such as a cream or a squeeze of

lemon. Always taste after finishing to see if the dish needs more salt.

Your finisher will be contingent upon your preference and what you

think tastes best. This is an opportunity for creativity.

With these simple methods as your guide, you are on route to make all

kinds of various dishes. My personal favorite one-pot meals include

White Tuscan Minestrone and Green Chili.

White Tuscan Minestrone starts with sautéing carrots, celery, onion

and garlic. White bean and chicken/vegetable broth are added once

root veggies are fragrant. Also add uncooked sausage here if you want

to liven up the broth a bit. Simmer until beans are cooked through.

Finish with rosemary sprig and a squeeze of lemon.

Green Chili is made by first sautéing onion until soft and sweet. While

the onions sauté, lay out green peppers (pablano, jalapeño, etc.) and

tomatillos (or green tomatoes) on a sheet pan (cookie sheet). Slide

under the broiler. Once blackened, peel off the skin. Set aside. Salt and

sear fatty pieces of pork in the onions as they continue to brown. Then,

chop up skinned tomatoes and peppers. Add onion/tomatillo mixture

to the pot. Cover with chicken broth. Simmer until meat falls apart.

Finish with rice and cilantro. Serve with tortillas or eat by itself.

Now that you have your guidelines, and your examples, get ready to

make something of your own! It’s time to get cooking.

A BEGINNER’S BAKING GUIDE

WHERE TO START TO FIND SUCCESS AS A

BRAND-NEW BAKER

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

Beginner’s Baking Guide

It’s autumn, and for many, enjoying

a cozy pastime helps ease the

transition to cooler,

shorter days. Aside

from the comforting

treats that come as a

result, baking can be a

comforting form of both

mental and physical

therapy. The concentration

required to follow a recipe and carefully

measure ingredients, mixed with the creativity that comes

with a chance to experiment with flavors, makes baking

a unique activity that is often considered more than just

a hobby.

If you’re new to the realm of baking, there are a few steps you can

take to find success as a beginning baker. Once you have a few

key elements down, including starting with the right tools and

techniques, you’ll feel like an expert in no time!

Where to Start: Baking Equipment

Set yourself up for success with quality baking tools. The right

equipment will make your road to becoming a seasoned baker

much sweeter, as quality bakeware makes for easier cleanups and

more evenly cooked results.

Invest in quality, non-stick bakeware. A non-stick or silicone

baking mat will help you skip the sticky baking sprays and endless

rolls of parchment paper—plus save you from cleaning up a sticky

mess later. There are non-stick options for just about every piece

of baking equipment, from muffin tins to cake pans, so if you’re

watching your budget, start by investing in the pieces you’ll use

most often.

Make sure your measuring tools are in order, including

measuring cups, a set of teaspoons and tablespoons, and a quality

liquid measuring cup. A set of dependable, accurate, easy-touse

measuring tools comes in handy not just for baking but for

recipes of all kinds.

While your remaining baking equipment will depend on your

needs, tastes and budget, many experts advocate for an investment

in a standing mixer. Compared to a handheld beater, standing

mixers ensure an easy, even blend of your ingredients. It helps

you expend less energy and save time, with the ability to multitask

while your ingredients mix away. A KitchenAid isn’t required—

there are plenty of budget-friendly options that produce

similar results.

During those first few recipes,

give yourself plenty of time

and grace.

Use High-Quality Ingredients

Investing in high-quality ingredients where you can will yield a noticeable

difference in taste. For example, there’s a difference between pure vanilla

extract and artificial vanilla extract—the real deal will produce a stronger,

more authentic flavor.

As much as you can, look for high-quality ingredients to produce the best

results. Pure extracts and real spices might be pricier, but a little bit goes

a long way, and the results are guaranteed to be noticed.

Some experts advocate for additional ingredient upgrades like swapping

table salt for sea salt to produce a more complex flavor profile, or using

browned butter for more tender, flaky results. Choose the upgrades that

are best for your specific recipe, baking interests and budget.

Take your recipe with you when shopping for ingredients, so you’ll know

exactly how much you need.

Set the Stage

When your equipment is purchased and your ingredients ready, it’s time

to begin. Set the stage by placing all ingredients on the counter and

thoroughly reading your recipe for key details.

Read the recipe to completion before you pour or mix anything. You’ll

have a better idea of timing, measurements and techniques needed to

complete the recipe.

Look for the phrase “room temperature”—you won’t want to ignore that

instruction. Temperature is a more critical component producing your

desired outcome than you may expect. Room temperature supports

a proper emulsion, which promotes an ideal texture in the finished

product. Allow any refrigerated ingredients listed that are called to

be room temperature to sit out on the counter for some time before

you begin.

If your recipe requires any ingredients to be “warmed,” be careful to

keep that ingredient warm—not hot. Mixing in hot ingredients will

often wreak havoc on the quality of the result and the chemical reactions

between other ingredients. Keep any and all warmed ingredients in the

recipe lukewarm at best.

When you’re ready to start mixing ingredients, follow the recipe in order.

As tempting as it may be to get creative and experiment, most recipes

are trusted for a reason. As you further develop your baking skills, you’ll

have the experience and knowledge base to successfully experiment in

the future.

Take Time to Enjoy the Process

Like any skill, art or hobby, baking takes time to learn. Don’t rush—allow

yourself to be patient and learn from your mistakes. During those first

few recipes, give yourself plenty of time and grace.

If you’re brand new to baking, you can save yourself a bit of stress by

starting with a simple recipe. Chocolate chip cookies, brownies and

muffins are all straightforward and give beginning bakers a great starting

foundation. Take time to enjoy the taste tests along the way!

Becoming a skilled, comfortable baker doesn’t happen overnight. It takes

time, and practicing is key. You can keep baking practice varied and fun,

both by trying new recipes and perfecting familiar classics.

Start simple, and start today—as we head into the holiday season,

you'll be ready to contribute fresh, expertly baked treats to your family

gatherings and festive events. After all, one of the best, most rewarding

aspects of developing your baking skills is sharing them! All you have to

do now is choose that first recipe and begin.

TRAVEL AND TASTE

A Food and Wine Weekend in Charming Woodinville, Washington

By Marguerite Cleveland

Amidst the Sammamish River Valley sits the charming town of Woodinville. With over 130 tasting rooms, Woodinville,

Washington, is a wine drinker’s heaven. There are four distinct wine districts each with their own vibe. If you want to learn more

about wine production, head to the Warehouse District for a behind-the-scenes look. For city lovers, the Downtown District

has lots of new tasting rooms, breweries, shopping and restaurants. The West Valley District is situated on the west side of the

Sammamish River and has a slower, more relaxed atmosphere with the tasting rooms spread out. The landmark Hollywood School is where

the Hollywood District gets its name. For a food and wine weekend, Hollywood is where you want to be with a Conde Nast gold-rated resort,

destination restaurants and more than 40 tasting rooms within walking distance.

Where to Stay

For a high-end super luxurious stay, the Willows Lodge is a gold-rated Conde Nast resort on 5 beautifully landscaped acres within walking

distance of the Hollywood District. The private patios overlook the peaceful gardens dominated by old-growth trees. Truly a special place

and worth the splurge.

It can be challenging to find lodging in Woodinville, especially during busy fall weekends. Just a 10-minute drive, the Hilton Garden Inn

Redmond Town Center is more like a boutique hotel with its modern, upscale décor. It is a great option, and if you don’t feel like driving,

there are a variety of transport options on the Woodinville Wine Country website.

WITH OVER 130 TASTING ROOMS,

WOODINVILLE, WASHINGTON, IS A

WINE DRINKER’S HEAVEN.

Where to Eat

So many great choices from charcuterie boards at wineries to multicourse fine

dining can all be found in the Hollywood District. For fine dining, The Barking Frog elevates the farm-to-table experience with creative menu items

and gorgeous presentations. Executive Chef Bobby Moore and team are inspired by fresh, local ingredients and the cultural diversity of the Pacific

Northwest. Make sure to try the Penn Cove Mussels in a flavorful curry broth. Divine!

Heritage Restaurant is chef and owner Breanna Beike’s baby. She serves up elevated comfort food moderately priced at this local favorite. Her food

is seriously good. Her Citrus Honey-Brined Half Chicken is a work of art. The roast chicken’s crisp, caramel-hued skin is served with in-season

vegetables, cheddar whipped potatoes and a rich, red wine-enhanced chicken jus.

Foodie nirvana is a wine bar with great food. The Purple Café & Wine Bar offers an extensive wine list. The wine flights are themed small pours of

three different wines; just enough, and you can pair one with each course. The café is known for its Baked Brie, which is a wonder of gooey melted

cheese smothered with apricot, caramelized onions and candied walnuts encased in pastry. It is served with fruit and crackers. The dine-in menu

has a wide variety of starters that are perfect to share with your table and make a meal out of it. This gives you the opportunity to try a variety of

food and wine pairings.

What to Do

Frankly, visitors come to Woodinville to drink wine, so that should be the focus of your visit. With 130-plus tasting rooms, it can be overwhelming.

Plan to visit one in the morning followed by a great lunch, then visit two in the afternoon. In the Hollywood District you can easily fit in more with

so many wineries right next to each other, but it will give

you a much less relaxed experience. Also, with COVID-19

protocols, it is not as easy to just drop in and taste. Research

prior to your visit and make reservations for the places you

want to try to avoid disappointment.

Here are three worth trying. Dusted Valley is a family owned

business creating the American Dream. With a dentist in

the family, wine-stained teeth have inspired the names of

both wines and the Stained Tooth Wine Club Society. Good

wine grows in the vineyards, and Dusted Valley’s sustainable

farming practices are creating excellent fruit. The 2018

Stained Tooth Syrah is a standout with its rich purple hue. It

is a gorgeous wine of 97 percent Syrah with a 3 percent hint

of Viognier.

Lauren Ashton Cellars is in the Apple Farm Village, a

darling collection of historic cottages that are nestled in

beautiful gardens, which give outdoor space to the tasting

rooms. Kit Singh, owner of Lauren Ashton Cellars, is a

gifted winemaker who crafts beautifully nuanced wines with his own

take on the French style of winemaking. Singh makes both red and white

wines, but he produces a greater variety of whites than most Washington

winemakers. For those who love white wine, you will have a difficult

time choosing your favorite. A unique wine worth trying is the 2020

Roussanne, as Singh is one of the few in Washington who creates a wine

from this complex white grape varietal, which is indigenous to the Rhone

Valley of France. Its delicate flavor pairs perfectly with shellfish.

The tasting room for Obelisco Estate is also at the Apple Farm Village.

General manager and winemaker Ken Abbott carries on the legacy of

his uncle, famed winemaker Doug Long, while continuing to work with

Aunt Betsy Long. They are known for their big, bold Red Mountain

(AVA) reds, and you are going to want to take home a bottle of Cabernet

Sauvignon or a red blend to age for a special occasion. Abbott also makes

some unique wines such as a Rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon. It is 100

percent juice unlike most Rosés which have water added. The winery

staff have dubbed it the “Brose” due to its big fruit flavor while remaining

dry. It is the “white wine” for red wine drinkers. Another unusual wine is

the Late Harvest Cabernet, which is sweet enough to be a dessert wine. At

the end of the harvest season, Abbott and all the staff pick the final grapes

of the season for this wine.

Before visiting Woodinville, take the time to visit the Woodinville

Wine Country website and view the event calendar. There is usually

something going on every weekend. A fun activity is Yoga and Wine at

Gard Vintners Woodinville. You’ll take a yoga class which is a mixture

of Hatha and Vinyasa followed by a wine tasting flight or glass of wine.

On Friday evenings, check the schedule for happy hours with live music

at a tasting room. If you feel like getting some outside time, walk the

Sammamish River Trail, which, as its name suggests, follows the river.

Insider Tip: If you are new to wine tasting, make your first stop the iconic

Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery. This gorgeous chateau hosts multiple

tasting rooms and offers a variety of wine experiences and classes which

will increase your wine education.

PUMPKIN BARS

WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

AND BACON MAPLE BITS

Recipe Courtesy of Tina VanDenHeuvel-Cook, NTP, NHC

You can follow Tina @madebetterforyou on Instagram

INGREDIENTS:

MAPLE BACON TOPPING

2 tbsp. maple syrup (I like Lakanto brand)

1 tsp. butter

4 strips cooked bacon, cut into bits

CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

8 oz. softened cream cheese

4 tbsp. softened butter

3/4 cup Swerve confectioners sweetener

2 tsp. heavy cream

2 tsp. vanilla

PUMPKIN BARS

5 eggs

3/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1 cup canned pumpkin puree

3/4 cups Swerve brown sweetener

2 cups almond flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

3/4 tsp. Himalayan pink salt

METHOD:

MAPLE BACON BITS

• In a small skillet over medium heat, add maple syrup and butter.

• When butter has melted, add bacon bits and cook until bacon has absorbed most of the

syrup, about 4 minutes.

• Remove bacon from the pan onto a small plate and set aside to cool completely.

CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

• In a medium bowl add cream cheese, butter, sweetener, heavy cream and vanilla. Using

a hand mixer or stand mixer, mix ingredients until fully combined. Set frosting aside.

PUMPKIN BARS

• Preheat oven to 350˚F. In a medium bowl, add eggs, coconut oil (coconut oil may be

warm but not hot, as you don't want the eggs to scramble by adding the oil), pumpkin

and brown sugar. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, combine all the ingredients until

smooth. Set aside.

• In another medium bowl, combine almond flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin

pie spice and salt. Stir together and make sure you get all the clumps out.

• Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well with a spatula until fully

combined.

• Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper to prevent the bars from sticking to the pan. Pour

the batter into the pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool completely on the counter.

• Spread the frosting evenly over the bars and sprinkle bacon bits over the frosting. Enjoy!

TRICK

OR TREAT

LOCAL ANIMAL SHELTER OFFERS A FUN STOP FOR KIDS

THIS HALLOWEEN

by COLIN ANDERSON

A

sk any kid, and they can remember their favorite

trick-or-treating route, usually involving someone

giving away the full-size or, if you’re really lucky,

king-size bars. While they might have their plan in

place weeks before the big day, parents should want to steer

them toward a stop at Second Chance Animal Adoption for

some additional fun—and, of course, candy. “This is our

biggest fundraiser of the year, and we always look forward to

it,” says Shelter Manager Carla Clark.

The 1,450-square-foot facility houses lost and up-foradoption

cats and dogs, as well as the thrift store that helps

provide the operational costs of the shelter. Carla says that

they are seeing a lot more cats come through the facility and

have plans to expand the cat room by adding on to the square

footage, and monetary donations will help make those plans

a reality.

The doors will open up for Howl With Us on the evening of

Halloween (Sunday, October 31) at 5:30pm and stay open

through 8pm, giving kids of all ages a chance to attend.

Volunteers will be passing out candy to costumed trick or

treaters, and there will be other fun events happening as

well. You can get your fortune read, try your skills in a game

of bean bag or basketball toss, and participate in a couple of

other yet-to-be-determined contests.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a donation to the event,

which can be cash, pet supplies, or even household goods

for the thrift store. With more cats currently coming through

the shelter, cat and kitten food is at the top of the list of

current needs.

As the biggest fundraiser of the year, volunteers are hoping to

see a great turnout and will be sure to make the event fun for

all ages. They are also looking for local businesses who might

want to sponsor the event. If you have interest in sponsorship

opportunities, you can call the shelter at 208.267.7504.
