´╗┐Youth Advisory Board

Our Youth Advisory Board members were very busy in December. They made a float and participated in the Annual Kamiah Christmas Light Parade; filled 200 goody bags for Santa to hand out; participated in the Office of Drug Policy Sticker Shock Campaign; had a Christmas Cookie Decorating Party; and led a group of community families through town, on a very snowy evening, Christmas Caroling.
