A loom knitting class will be offered at the library starting at 5:30 p.m. for ages 10 and older. There is no fee for the class, but those planning to participate are asked to let the library know so ample supplies are available.

Nyssa Elementary School is the location for the Malheur County Spelling Bee. The event starts at 8:30 a.m. and features students from schools across Malheur County. The winner of the bee will be eligible to compete on a national level in Washington, D.C. The event is open to the public, even if you don’t have a student in the competition this is a great opportunity to cheer for our students on the academic field.

• Burn days in the Nyssa city limits are March 6-16 and are for burning yard debris only. Now is the time to rake, clip and pile your yard debris and safely burn it. Remember to have water and a shovel nearby and keep an eye on your burn pile.
