What's Happening in Stonyford: It's Rodeo Weekend!
Rodeo weekend is here.
I listed the events last week, but I'll go through them quickly again: Parade is Saturday at 10 a.m.; rodeo is Saturday at 1 p.m.; concert by Cindy Witt at the Community Church on Sunday at 10 a.m.; Punkin Town specialty act is back this year. He's a crowd favorite.
Indian Valley Fire Department is serving breakfast both days at the fire hall from 7-10 a.m.: pancakes, sausage and eggs.
Timberline Bar and Grill has live music by Kimmy and the Diamond Bucks Saturday night starting at 9 p.m. and Sunday starting at 7 p.m. This is the same group that was here last year. If you enjoyed them, come on back.
The Grange dinner on Tuesday will be ham and potato soup this week, with salad, homemade bread and desert. Served from 5-7 p.m. or until we run out.
Ted Trombley, my brother-in-law, is back in town, and would be glad to play cribbage with anyone stopping by. He's going to challenge Chuck, our reigning champ.
Ted is a traveling poet. He winters in Yuma, Ariz., and has been spending the summers here in Stonyford for several years now. If you ask, he might even recite one of his poems for you.
Kids Fish Day is Saturday, May 12, from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. It's at Little Stony Creek just past Little Stony Creek Campground on Goat Mountain Road. The stream will be planted with approximately 900 rainbow trout, in three age group sections.
The first 100 kids will receive a T-shirt, cap and goodie bag from the Forest Service. For info call David Armocido, at 906-5848.
And lastly, don't forget Mother's Day, coming up on Sunday, May 13.
