Two from county play in ‘Messiah’

Two performers from Wallowa County will be part of the orchestra for this year’s community production of Handel’s “Messiah” 7 p.m. Dec. 17 at La Grande High School.

Kathy Vernon from Lostine will play the clarinet and Michelle McMillan of Enterprise will play the trombone.

The production tells the story of Jesus directly from the King James version of the Bible from the prophecy of His birth, His sacrifice and eventual death and His resurrection.

It includes the famous “Hallelujah Chorus” at the end of Part II, Scene 7.

Foundation gets funding support

The Endowment Committee for the Wallowa Valley Library Foundation has been busy fundraising over the past few weeks.

Soroptimists International of Wallowa County provided a grant of $1,000 and also auctioned off items for the foundation. Another $1,090 was raised from a bicycle raffle. The winner was Ruth Uhrig. Outlaw Motor Sports donated the bicycle.

The Joseph Holiday Bazaar proved a big success for the committee as well, raising $1,460 from a booth there. The bazaar organizers donated back the committee’s booth fees.

The funds are being used to endow the foundation so that it can continue to support libraries throughout all of Wallowa County.

Guided deer hunt raffled

Enterprise Education Foundation is selling tickets for a three-day guided deer hunt on the Nature Conservancy’s Zumwalt Prairie. A winner will be drawn April 13, 2018 at the “We Love Our Kids” dinner and auction.

The tags were donated by the Nature Conservancy.

Tickets are $25 each or five for $100. A maximum of 400 tickets will be sold at Neil’s Body Shop, Miller Plumbing or by calling Cindi at 541-426-2039.
