Highway 30 Music Fest a success
If you missed it, I am sorry. If you were there, you know what I’m talking about. This past weekend Gordy’s HWY 30 Music Fest played in Filer, Id. I will say the finest event I have attended in my years here in Twin Falls. Special thanks to Gordy and Megan Schroeder for organizing and managing such an outstanding event. Thank you to your host of volunteers, who made the experience second to none for all in attendance. Thank you to your event sponsors and vendors, for making an event like this happen. Lastly, thank you to your talent line-up, which continued to give and entertain, performance after performance. I suggest if you missed this family-friendly event, you put it on your calendar for next year, it certainly will not disappoint and you’ll be glad you did. Thank you to all at HWY 30 Music Fest for a great weekend!
Appreciation for PSI
I had forgotten to pull my cans to the curb on waste collection day. I remembered the moment I heard the truck coming down the street. I had foot surgery just the day before so I was slow moving, literally hop-hobbling trying to get them moved in time to catch the truck. The truck driver, James, stopped his truck, jumped out and jogged over to me. He insisted on moving both cans and would not let me do it. He was professional and kind. Thank you James for your excellent customer service. You went above and beyond your required duties and I humbly appreciate your actions.
Way to go PSI for hiring such a valuable team member. This is not the first time I have witnessed an PSI employee going the extra mile. My family and I have lived in Twin Falls for seven years and consistently, without fail any interaction I’ve had with the drivers on collection day have been exceptional. In my experience this is the result of high standards and examples demonstrated by management. Again, my sincere thanks to PSI Environmental and especially to James who showed empathy and professionalism when it was not expected.
Team Leilah thanks sponsors
The Leilah Bike Team of the Magic Valley traveled to Logan, Utah on June 22nd and 23rd to participate in Harmon’s Best Dam Bike ride, a charity bicycle ride that raises money for Multiple Sclerosis Research and resources for patients suffering with Multiple Sclerosis. Leilah bike team rides in honor of Leilah Schroeder, who has suffered with multiple sclerosis for many years. The team was started by her son Greg Schroeder who wanted to honor his mother and help find a cure for this disease. The team started out with 4 members 10 years ago. This year the team had 54 registered team members and raised over $15,000.00 to help in this worthy cause. Special thanks to Stacy Reynolds, RN who alone recruited over 20 teammates, many of whom are nurses at St. Luke’s Magic Valley. Anna Huff was the top fundraiser bringing in $1750.00 The team would like to thank Cycle Therapy for the donation of a 2015 Giant Roam Hybrid Bicycle that was used as a raffle prize to help the team reach their fundraising goal, Clif bar generously provided nutritional needs for the team and Jeff Floyd of J.K. Floyd Photography for capturing awesome memories of the team.
Kiwanis thanks all involved in Golf Tournament
Thank you for your courtesy publication of announcing the Filer and Kimberly Kiwanis Golf Tournament held on June 10th at the 93 Golf Course in Jerome. The benefit for children in the Magic Valley brings scholarships and help to many young people, which is the main focus of Kiwanis International around the world. A special thanks to the sponsors and golf teams that participated is very helpful in making this tenth event a rewarding experience for all participants.
Someone said it takes a village to raise a child and to paraphrase here, it takes sponsors, golfers, Kiwanians and a purpose to help young people be aided in preparing for life. Thanks to all who made this effort rewarding.
Bob Parish, Steve Cowger, Jan Hall
