I think a cup of coffee (or two) is even more important on days like these when there's a nip in the air. While you sip your brew, take a look at some highlights from Saturday's Valley Voice. Reporter Lisa Leinberger has a story on the effort of the Central Valley High School marching band and color guard to participate in the Inaugural Parade in Washington, D.C. in January. They are in the midst of an award winning year and hope that will give them an extra edge on their application.
Lisa also has details on two upcoming events that will benefit the Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service. There is a Howl-O-Ween pet costume party and a Kibble4Kritters event to collect pet food.
Four members of the Spokane Valley Fire Department honor guard recently participated in a wreath placing ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington Cemetery. One honor guard member describes it as a special experience that gave him chills.
