What's Happening in Stonyford: September starts social season
The Pig Feed fundraiser was a great success.
The dinner was very good, and well-attended. We always enjoy the auction. It's amazing how generous people are. There were guy things: gravel, wood, tools, handmade knife. But I think the favorite item that people anticipated was the big basket of homemade jams, jellies and pickles. We'll look forward to next year.
The Stonyford Community Church welcomes Coach Moore for a return visit this Sunday. He is the senior pastor of the Open Gate Church in Willows. He will be conducting the Sunday service. The church is also having a community potluck dinner at 6 p.m. They will provide hot dogs. Bring your favorite dish. It'll be on the church lawn.
September and Labor Day seem to start our social season here in Stonyford. The kids are back in school. And because of the heat and vacations, and this year the fires, we skip some of our regular activities.
So, Chit Chat is back. This is a small group that meets once a month for lunch and some social time. We met last Wednesday. It was good to see everyone again.
The Tuesday dinners will start again next week. This first one will be meatloaf, mashed potatoes, vegetable and dessert. Serving from 5 p.m. We also have takeout, and will deliver in the Stonyford area. Give me a call for delivery, 218-7234.
We had our first bingo of the season last Wednesday, and will be back on regular schedule the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at 6 p.m. The attendance for this first one was light. We're hoping to get more people to remember and come out to play.
We had our first Grange meeting last Tuesday night and planned our schedule for the next couple of months. The Harvest Dinner will be Oct. 13. This is a potluck dinner at the Grange. We present our Citizen of the Year award. Put this date on your calendars.
We're planning a Cake Walk for 6 p.m Oct. 27. Everyone who comes in costume will get a treat. This is a fun event. I'll be asking for people to donate cakes or goodies as the time gets closer. If you would like to donate, please give me a call.
There's a Craft Fair at the library in Elk Creek on Sept. 29-30, all day, staying open later than usual, I hear. I'll get more details as it gets closer.
Our brother Ted was in the hospital again for a couple of days, but is good again. He's going to "fly away" south pretty soon. Larry will be in sole charge of the chickens again.
Last week, we had a visit by the male peacock. I don't know if he lost his mate or he just needed some quiet time. Also playing through our place was a flock of about six young wild turkeys.
Is flock the right term?
