Fun Fridays Scheduled by White Pine Chamber of Commerce
The White Pine Chamber of Commerce is again planning Fun Fridays for the summer season.
Fun Friday is a downtown celebration with entertainment, vendors, food, and lots of fun. KDSS Radio provides the music and does a live remote to let everyone know what is happening. Participating businesses are identified with signs in their windows and people are invited to come in and check out the specials that are offered.
This year the event will take place on the corner of 7th and Aultman with Economy Drug providing the grassy corner next to the Sculpture Park. Vendors are welcome and may contact the Chamber at 775-289-8877 for rates and information. Non-profit organizations are invited to fund raise or recruit membership.
Contact the Chamber and talk to Wayne Cameron for information.
Mark your calendar and plan to join the fun.
The White Pine Chamber of Commerce has the following dates for this year’s Fun Fridays:
June 2 Kick off to Summer – live band
June 30 Welcome Home WPHS Alumni
August 4 Chili Cook Off – live band
Oct. 27 Trick or Treat the Street Fun

The Schell Creek Range provides a picturesque backdrop to the aerial seeding of public lands in north Spring Valley. North Schell Peak (the snow-covered mountain behind the helicopter) is the highest mountain in the range, rising 11,884 feet above sea level.
The Sagebrush Quilt Guild
The Sagebrush Quilt Guild members are participating in another interesting project. We are making lap quilts and placemats for the Meals on Wheels program in the White Pine County area. There are currently more than 55 people who use this program. Participating members of the Sagebrush Quilters are working diligently to make some lovely quilted items for these folks.
Another fun activity is that each member is making a quilt block a month using colors that depict the season that is celebrated during that month. On all day quilting, we put our individual blocks in an unmarked paper bag and choose another that someone else has made. At the end of the year, we will each assemble a 12 block quilt using our friends' beautiful 10 inch blocks. The idea is that we choose a block pattern that is new and challenging each month.
In addition, our new challenge for the annual quilt show is a pattern called the "Hunters Star." Many members have not tried this pattern. We are looking forward to seeing the beautiful concoctions at the annual quilt show in August. There will be many colors and sizes.There are two very kind gentlemen in our area who are making new quilt racks for the quilt guild. They promise to be much easier to set up and take down and will give us much needed additional hanging area for our quilts. We hope to be able to invite the public to show their quilts at our show. Due to the great success of our noontime trunk show at last year's quilt show, we plan to invite the public once again to come and share quilts they have made or were made for them. New or old, each quilt has an interesting story that people love to tell and hear about.
The Sagebrush Quilt Guild meets every Thursday night at 4:00 p.m. in the undercroft of the Episcopal Church at 209 West 7th Street. We meet until we get tired and need to go home. We also meet every second Saturday, for all-day quilting. Please bring your sewing machines or handwork and meet with us for a great time filled with laughter and camaraderie. We welcome quilters of all ages and expertise levels. Our mission is to promote the art of quilting to our community. For information, please call Margaret Thiel at 775-293-2284. Don't know how to quilt? Please come and we will teach you!
