Page 5 Hells Canyon Journal December 1, 2010 [ ] Raupps Attend National Grange Convention Don and LaVonne Raupp Of Richland attended the National Grange Convention November 7 through 13 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Raupps were represent- ing the Oregon State Grange. The Raupps were among 15 performing groups, repre- senting the same number of states. Each group sang the same medley the Raupps per- formed when they won the Oregon State Grange compe- titian representing the Eagle Valley Grange at the state con- .vention in Roseburg last June. At the Evening of Excel- lence, the six-minute musi- cal presentation, which is much beloved by the Raupps' friends and family back home in Eagle Valley, included "Sentimental Journey," "Ain't She Sweet?" and "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You." The youngest performer of the evening was a nine-year- old girl from Placerville, Call- fornia. "That little lady could really sing! What a voice and what a privilege to be there to hear her," said Don Raupp. The program was not a competition, rather a presen- tation of state competition winners, which added an op- portunity for sharing and appreciation to the festivity of the week. Don also talked about how impressed he was at the pres- ence of the Grange Youth. They were also meeting in convention that week, and Raupp stressed the respect and integrity with which the youth honored their member- ship and responsibilities as representatives of their states. The National Grange Youth program is designed to provide leadership training and life skills opportunities The National Grange Con- vention was hosted by the North Caroline State Grange, and Don could not say enough good things about how won- derfully everyone was treated. "Everything was taken care of, and we felt so hon- ored and happy to be there." Don said that if one were to point out anything that re- ally did go a little awry and maybe have a twist of humor to it as well, it was the piano provided for the musical ac- companiments. "It needed more than a tuning when cer- tain notes were played, but it worked out well and the event was a lot of fun." A significant highlight of the trip for the Raupps was the four hours they spent at the Billy Graham Library. The North Carolina State Grange provided transporta- tion, and Don said they en- joyed their time at the library immensely. While Don and LaVonne did very little sightseeing, Don said the visit to the library was an amaz- ing experience and they re- ally enjoyed it. Randalls Gather Submitted Photo THANKSGIVING AT THE JOHN AND DOROTHY RANDALL HOME was not only abundant in food, family, fun but also in years! Years married, that is. A combined total of 270 years of marriage was tallied by the Randall siblings, including (seated) Dorothy Randall, Bethel Robinson and John Randall; and (standing) Clint and Glenda Randall, Wes and Marilyn Randall, Eth and Bob Williams and Shirley and Frank Randall. Cindy Randall Piano, who, with her husband Dan, celebrated their own 30th wedding anniversary on Sunday, also noted the family didn't lack for game playing and delightful conversation on Thanksgiving. "We had so much fun," she said. "We always doF Pine Valley Grange Bazaar December 11 The Pine Valley Grange is sponsoring their annual Christmas Holiday Bazaar and Bake Sale. Saturday December 11.

Lois Coombes Update Jasper Coombes was de- lighted to walk into Lois' hos- pital room at St. Alphonsus in Baker City on Sunday morning to find her sitting up in bed with her make-up case, getting ready for the day. Lois walks as frequently as she can, and her ability to speak is improving as her healing continues. Jasper said the doctors estimate Lois will be in the hospital for another four or five weeks, but with the way she is im- proving, he smiles and says, it should be about three weeks. Lois' family is enjoyingv each moment of positive change. They continue to be grateful for prayers of sup- port and encouragement past and present, and ask for con- tinning prayers as Lois works to regain her health and mo- bility.

Binford were having lunch in a Subway restau- rant. While waiting in line to place their order, they struck up a conversation with a couple from Wallowa who were in line ahead of them. During the conversation, the gentleman from Wallowa mentioned he and his wife were driving to Portland to visit their grandson who is ill and in the hospital. The Binfords told the Wallowa couple they would keep them and their grandson in their prayers. When Angela and J. P. received their meal and were going to pay, they dis- covered the man from Wallowa had already paid for it. Thanking him and insist- ing it was not necessary, the man interrupted telling them that once a stranger had done the same for him and he was simply "paying it forward." Angela commented, "There is so much negative in the world and how refresh- ing to have such a kind and positive encounter. Now it is our turn to 'pay it forward'." i t Prices effective December 2"d- 5th Open 7:00am - 7:00pm Men-Sat 7:00am - 6:00pro Sunday C 6' H Sugar 4 Ibs ............................. $1.99 WF Flour All-Purpose 6' Unbleached, 10 lbs ............... 2/55 Betty Crocker or WF Cake Mixes is.2s oz ............ 99’ Nestle Baking Chips io-i2 oz asst'd ................. 52.39 WF Evaporated Milk 12 oz ........................ 69’ Swiss Miss Cocoa Mix lo et .....................
