The Riddle City Library proudly reopened its doors on June 6. We are offering a full-service library; this is not a reading room, feel free to check out your books and take them home! There are many library related events planned for the summer: teenage reading club, crafts, magic shows and much more. Please come in, sit, surf, read, check us out!

Sawdust Jubilee committee has been working hard all year to sponsor the downtown celebration as well as the fireworks on the evening of the July 4. Currently they are selling trees at the Community Garden. These are bare root trees, so they need to be planted soon, hence the BOGO sale, half price, two for one extravaganza! If there is no attendant at the garden, call the number on the gate and someone will be there momentarily to assist you with your tree purchases.

Many events are planned for the four-day Sawdust Jubilee Celebration: softball tournaments, BBQ cookoff, children’s games, BINGO and of course the Parade and fireworks. Check out the Riddle Area Chamber website for a full list of events.

Riddle Area Chamber of Commerce is currently accepting nominations for community volunteers. Anyone that you think should be recognized for volunteering in our community, please stop in at Banner Bank and complete a short nomination. The Chamber will pick from the nominations and recognize the winners during the 4th of July Parade on Main Street.

Our flower baskets and planters are thriving, thanks to the volunteer efforts of the many townspeople who plant and water religiously.

The Riddle Elementary “Kids Venture” program will be in full swing shortly. If you see small people around town or in the nearby fields and streams, fear not, they are learning about plant life, bug life and many other aspects of “outdoor education.”

City of Riddle will begin the 4th Avenue project as soon as school is finished for the summer. This project includes new streets and sidewalks from Park to Bunker. Please be aware of this construction as it butts up to the four way stop by the Grade School!

Stay tuned for our next edition. We are welcoming two new business to town, more to come on that shortly.
