What's Happening in Stonyford: Get your fill of corned beef
It's St. Patrick's Day tomorrow.
You can get your fill of corned beef and cabbage; Tony is serving it all weekend at the Timberline.
Tuesday dinner at the Grange will also be corned beef and cabbage. Ours is only $7, and includes coffee or punch and dessert. Larry is cooking this week. Dessert is apricot cobbler or apple cake.
Spring has sprung a few days early, but that's OK, we love it. We're still making a little fire in the mornings once in awhile, though.
Time to think about gardening. And we got a few new chicks to replenish our flock. And several of our neighbors have new baby goats adding to their herds. The hens are laying again. Anita has home-grown eggs for sale, $2.50 a dozen. Sign is on the main road into town; you can't miss it.
Spring means spring cleaning, too. We've thinned out some of those treasures we've been saving. We're having a four-family yard sale on Lakeview Loop next weekend, Friday Saturday and Sunday, starting at 8 a.m. Stop by and see if anything looks like a treasure to you.
Sew What?! group meets on Wednesday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. This week I have pictures from a quilt show I attended last month, and a few new ideas from projects. Hope to see you there.
Bingo had 20 players last week. It was lots of fun. It's every Wednesday, and starts at 6 p.m. You can play for as little as $5. Or play more cards for more money. Snacks available.
It appears East Park and Stony Gorge reservoirs are changing status. There was a public meeting last week. I don't know the outcome yet. We are all hoping that the powers that be find a way to keep it open.
Indian Valley Elementary is having their lasagna dinner on March 23 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. They are raising funds for the spring field trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and the old Spanish mission and historical area of San Juan Bautista. Price is $8 for adults and $6 for children. You can take it to go, or dine in.
Post Office hours are changing to 10:30 a.m.- 2:30 p.m. beginning on March 25. Saturdays will remain open two hours as before, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Mail delivery will be on the same schedule as before.
Easter is on the way. The Indian Valley Assembly of God is having their big to-do on March 30, from 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. There will be an Easter Egg Hunt, puppet show, crafts to do, and a barbeque lunch. There will be prizes for this and that. No charge for this event. And everyone is welcome.
Stonyford Community Church is having their Sunrise Service at the rodeo grounds. That's on Sunday, March 31 — at sunrise.
We've scheduled a Cake Walk for April 27.
Don't forget the rodeo coming up May 4-5.
