Another good reason to call St. Maries home . . .


Sometimes the best side of a community is seen when one of its own is suffering.

Most often it’s an illness or accident that draws people together to help their neighbors.

Tomorrow the friends and the Plummer community will provide lunch benefit at the Wellness Center in Plummer for Sophia George.

Sophia was the passenger in a car headed south on Highway 95 near Plummer, when the vehicle hit a moose.

While the driver was treated at Kootenai Medical Center and released Sophia was transported to Sacred Heart Medical Center, where she remains in critical condition as of Monday.

Now the community is stepping up. Diners will have the choice of Indian tacos, taco soup or spaghetti during the lunch served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in conference room B at the Wellness Center. The money will help her family pay for all the expenses associated with an extend hospital stay.

So yes, St. Maries and the surrounding area is a great place to live.
