The Colville Tree of Sharing is now open and needs support. Sponsored by the Colville Rotary Club, the tree is located in the Key Bank lobby at 211 South Main Street and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Tree of Sharing gives citizens and businesses in the Colville area an opportunity to brighten the holiday season for children in Stevens County. There are currently 130 tags remaining on the tree.
Stop by Key Bank and select a gift tag from the tree, or drop off a donation. Generosity will help a child who otherwise may not receive a gift this Christmas.
Kettle Falls High School is also hoping to provide students with a Job Shadow opportunity. Job shadowing will take place during the month of February. There are a total of 68 sophomores that we will be transporting in small numbers throughout the community to job shadow. We ask that you have one student on any given day (your availability) and we will provide you with resumes and generic job applications from the students that are interested in your career so that you can select and know about anyone coming to job shadow.
The atmosphere in the Keller House last Monday was merry, if slightly scattered, as volunteers prepared the historic Colville home for the annual Christmas Tour.
Wreaths were waiting to be hung and Christmas lights illuminated the dining room. Amidst all the holiday decoration, photos of men and women in the United States Armed Forces surveyed the scene, coinciding with this yearâ€™s theme, â€śIâ€™ll be Home for Christmas.â€ť
