Eagle Valley High School

I would like to thank everyone that helped with the second annual Eagle Valley High School Community Service Day.
Over 750 students, 40 community leaders, 50 staff members, and parents served the community May 18. Students pulled weeds, painted parking lot lines, cleaned swimming pools, washed windows, created community gardens, cleaned senior citizen yards, painted graffiti, washed squad cars, tutored students, cleared hiking paths, shoveled manure, rock raked and moved furniture into the new cancer camp, just to name a few.

Are we seeing more bears because there are more bears on the valley floor, or because we’re all spending more time at home? It could be a bit of both.
