Kathy Jenkins along with Phyllis Johnson at J & J's Cutting Edge have taken it upon themselves to canvas the town of Enterprise with yellow ribbon bows in support of the Wallowa County troops. The bows are going up on all the lamp posts in town, and Pacific Power has given permission to put them on the power poles throughout town.

They will also be going to all the businesses in town, and if anyone is interested in buying a bow for $1, the money will go for phone cards and anything else the troops may need. Jenkins has been going around town collecting donations for the cost of the ribbons and the pair has been making bows at the shop.

In addition to the 35 businesses and many individuals who have contributed, the women extend a special thanks to John Hillock and Lee Bollman for the help in putting the bows up on the lamp posts, to Nancy Rudger for picking up the rolls of ribbon for the bows, Enterprise Flower Shop for the wire, and Forget-Me-Not Flowers for donating bows.There is a list of the many men and women that are in the military on the window at J & J's Cutting Edge along with a military scene. The women hope that if there are any names that are not included on the window that family or friends will let them know.
