At the May 12 State of the Scotchmans gathering at the Panida in Sandpoint, one of our Friends won a silent auction package containing a gift certificate donated by All Seasons Garden and Floral in Kootenai. On the way out the door that evening, the envelope with the certificate “jumped ship.” The next day, the Friend retraced her steps, but found no envelope.
All was not lost. Someone found the envelope and returned it to All Seasons, where John Hastings, who owns the store with his wife Nancy, sent FSPW an e-mail regarding the returned certificate. Its rightful owner and the certificate are now reunited, thanks to some fine North Idaho folk.
