Riggins News: Hot Summer Nights to tap for the weekend | Community
RIGGINS – Excerpt of the week: “Always, always, always something to be thankful for!” from Homemaking Tips.
A dear Riggins veteran, Hal Harris, recently spent weeks in rehabilitation at Boise VA Hospital after having his left leg amputated. Then, only out of the hospital a week, Hal erected a flagpole in his yard, raised his American flag and gave his dignified military salute (see photo). Her daughter bought and painted a pole; Hal rested. Yes, there is always something to be thankful for and Hal shows his gratitude here.
Riggins will focus on the weekend with numerous Hot Events, SRHS Class reunions, family and friend gatherings for the annual Riggins Hot Summer Nights “I Love the ’80s.” It will be a blast with a lot of action in 1980 this Friday and Saturday, July 23 and 24.
