Lee Bates, director, is seeking additional singers for this program of cowboy songs. Tenors are especially needed! The choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings at the First Presbyterian Church from 7:00-9:00. The commitment would include just four rehearsals in addition to the March 13th performance. Contact Lee Bates at 509-925-2343 or email:, if you are able to help out for this important benefit event. Or, just show up at rehearsal. You’re guaranteed to have a great time making music for a worthy cause.

Daylight Savings Time Begins: Don’t forget to change your clocks back on Saturday, March 7th before you go to bed.

Thank you for the opportunity to present a Gideon Report last Sunday and to meet the congregation. I want to thank you for your support, the offering that was given in the amount of $306 is evidence of your congregations concern for making the Word of God available to those who otherwise may not have a copy.
