Kellogg students play for Salvation Army at Walmart

Kellogg students play for Salvation Army at Walmart

Instead of the normal bell-ringing for the Salvation Army’s holiday red kettles, these young men were playing in front of the Smelterville Walmart on Sunday afternoon.

KXLY viewer, Debbie Marek, emailed us to give these guys a shout out for giving their time and talents. She even shot this photo of the guys.

They’re students at Kellogg High School. They’re all in a Kellogg-based band called White Chocolate. They describe themselves as alternative/funk/indie-rock on their band page at Reverbnation.

They don’t perform frequently due to the busy schedule of school, but they all participate in the school’s regular band and jazz band.

Home decor can be used and re-purposed and found at this weekend's antique show

It may have junk in the name, but Funky Junk isn't that junky. It's just an antique show and draft market featuring vintage and modern re-purposed items for home decor and even conventional use. It's an opportunity to stock up on home decor to get your home and garden during your Labor Day weekend.

"It seems lately that people love the feel of vintage items for home decor, and the warmth that something with a story brings with it to their home," Hollie Jantz Eastman, organizer, said. She continued, "Many of the items are still functional, so they can find new life in a new home."

The weekend will be filled with parades, workshops performances and dancing! You could learn the polka and be that couple that dances the polka at a wedding.

Huckleberry Festival

Huckleberry Festival

In college, my roommate's mother was aghast that I and two of our other friends had never had huckleberries. She said "How could you girls not have had huckleberries?  You grew up at the foothills of the Cascades".

I love that quote. It's ten years later and I still remember it. We all grew up in Western Washington, which apparently meant to this Missouri mother that we should have all been raised on huckleberries.
