We had our first planning meeting for the 4th of July Friday night and it is going to be awesome. Queen Contest, Kids Rodeo, Dances, Breakfast, Parade, Program, Lunch, Carnival Rides, ATV Ride, Classics Car and Tractors, More Rodeo and More Dancing. There is even going to be an appearance by an Apache Helicopter before the parade. The celebration will be on the 6th and 7th this year.
But we need some help. We are looking for anyone who wants to do the concessions at the rodeo grounds on Friday Night and Saturday afternoon. We are also looking for someone who is interested in organizing the program. We have lots of help, but can’t do it all.
Just reply to this message if you are interested in helping us out. Our next meeting will be on 5/11 at 7:30 PM at the school. If you can’t make it to Grouse Creek, we can include you on a conference call. Just let me know and I will send you the information. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, Alan Smith

On July 11th, Grouse Creek held a rodeo and princess pageant. Dustie Warr was crowned the queen and Lillie Lillibridge was crowned princess. Great job to all of those who participated.
We had another very successful cemetery cleanup this year. Thanks again to all those who came out and helped!
Bob Flinder’s grandson, Shawn Flinders, is doing a Eagle Project For the Grouse Creek cemetery to provide benches.
They are accepting any kind of money donations any one would like to make to:
Send to Shawn Flinders
7486 South 1900 East.
South Weber Utah 84405
They would like to get them as soon as possible so they can have them ready for the cemetery cleanup day on May 13th.
Would like donations before May 1, 2016.
The annual cemetery cleanup will be Saturday, May 14. The LDS Branch will provide lunch meat, cheese, rolls, and condiments. They will also have lemonade and water. They will also have plates, cups, and utensils.
Everyone is invited to eat and if possible, bring a salad or dessert.
For the first time Grouse Creek is going to have a rodeo queen and princess pageant. Ages for the queen will be 11 to 16 and the princess will be 6 to 10 years old. The pageant will be held on May 20th.
It will be open for any girls in Idaho, Utah or Nevada. For more information and requirements you can message Sarah Boyer Warr, call 435-747 -151, or email email@example.com. There will be various prizes for participants.
The Annual Easter Egg Hunt will take place on Saturday, March 26th at 10:00 AM. The hunt will start at the Gone Country store and ages 0-4 years get a one minute head start.
On February 2nd, 2016, there was a mysterious plane crash in the remote desert southwest of Park Valley. The abandoned and empty plane was discovered by Tom Austin, a hunter, who contacted the sheriff’s office. When a detective contacted the FAA, they were informed the crash had already been reported and both passengers were fine.
Many questions about the crash, such as why they were attempting to land in a remote field and why the police were not contacted, have not been addressed.
