Dinner to be served!


St. Maries is a great community and at the heart of every great community are its people, its school, and its sports programs.

At the heart of St. Maries are the Lumberjacks. Whether it’s the tough and tumble football players or the state champion volleyball team, the community and the Lumberjack Booster Club are behind its teams, its coaches, through every season.

The Lumberjack Booster Club has supported St. Maries High School for several years, supplementing the school budget with the purchase of uniforms and supplies for the school’s athletic teams. The annual Lumberjack Hall of Fame Banquet & Auction is the primary fundraiser for the booster club.

This year’s banquet is Nov. 9 at the Elks Lodge. The event begins with a social hour at 5 p.m. followed by dinner at 6 p.m. The newest member of the Lumberjack Hall of Fame, Steve Konkright, will be inducted at 6:30 p.m. with the auction and games to follow. Tickets are $20 each and diners have a choice of New York Strip or Chicken for dinner.

Mr. Konkright, or “Konk” has he’s known, taught sixth grade at St. Maries Middle School for approximately 30 years before he retired. In addition to a career as a favored teacher, Konk coached baseball, softball, basketball and volleyball, often as a junior varsity, providing the younger athletes with a strong foundation of knowledge and skill in each sport. During that time the Lumberjacks, varsity and junior varsity carried some impressive records. Who more deserving to be honored than the coach that lead them there.

Just 225 tickets will be sold for the dinner. Tickets can be purchased at the following locations: Archie’s IGA, BrickwaL.L. Spa & Espresso, Country Fair, Mountain Plating and Studio 201
