What's Happening in Stonyford: Getting into the Halloween spirit
Stonyford is all decked out for fall.
The 4-H group went through town and placed displays in front of the buildings. The Stonyford General Store, the Timberline Bar and Grill, the Post Office, the Town Hall and the Grange Hall — each has a decoration.
There are bales of hay, pumpkins, fall foliage and scarecrow-type stick people. They really brighten up the town. Many thanks to Ralph, Anita and Miranda, the leaders. And many, many thanks to the 4-H youth who built these displays.
There is a banner in the window of the Town Hall, also placed there by the 4-H kids. It's titled "Revolution of Responsibility." Take a look at it if you go past there. The 4-H is promoting the learning of responsibility. This banner shows what they are working on.
The CRMC Clinic on Lodoga Stonyford Road is open Fridays from 9 a.m.-noon. They will still have flu shots available and take walk-ins. They also want everyone to know that they have a bin in their lobby for disposal of needles. There is no charge for this service, and no paperwork. You can bring in your used needles of any kind and dispose of them safely.
This could be useful for insulin or other meds. It could also be useful for ranchers who inoculate cattle. The bin is inside the clinic, and can only be accessed on Friday morning.
Tuesday dinner this week at the Grange is Polish dogs with or without chili, and potato salad. Last week's meatloaf was a success. Take out and delivery are available, as well as eat-in.
Sew What will be back at the machines this week. We took a break last week while Chit Chat met at the hall. I may be going to Paskenta this Tuesday to their quilting group. If anyone would like to go with me, give me a call, 963-3050.
Bingo is at 6 p.m. Wednesday. Come out and give it a try. It's a lot of fun.
The Cake Walk is next Saturday at 6 p.m. It's at the Grange. We'll have hot dogs and snacks. Costumes are encouraged.
There is a sign-up list at the store or the Post Office. If you would like for trick-or-treaters to come to your house, stop in and sign up.
The Turkey Shoot is going to be at 9 a.m. Nov. 3. This is always a fun day, with target shooting, skeets, and dice for those who don't shoot. There should also be a raffle and lunch served. This event benefits the Indian Valley-Bear Valley Fire Department
Larry's brother Ted is back in Yuma and doing well. He is in an RV park down there, right on the Colorado River, and has some old friends in the park who will help him get settled. Each park down there is like a small community, with activities in the clubhouse, pancake breakfasts, sing-alongs, etc.
We're going to try some of that later this winter.
