What's Happening in Stonyford?: Rodeo's over, moving on

Well, rodeo weekend was a great success. Thanks to all of you who supported our events. Even the weather was almost perfect, just a little windy.
A group of Stonyford ladies hit the road Friday, headed to St. Monica's Catholic Church in Willows. The YLI, Young Ladies' Institute had their annual Salad Luncheon. Joyce Bond is a YLI member and organizes the outing. She sold about 15 luncheon tickets, and had a special table reserved for the Stonyforders. She even took "take-out" orders. Good job, Joyce!
This Sunday is Mother's Day. Do something special for mom. How about brunch or dinner at the Timberline Bar and Grill or Squaw Creek Inn? Squaw Creek has cheesecake for dessert.
The Grange Tuesday Night Dinner sold out again! We served potato and ham soup and ran out about 6 o'clock. We're going to plan for more in the future, sorry Shirley J, but thanks to everyone for supporting us.
Next Tuesday's fare is going to be beef stew, salad, biscuits and desert, still $6.
Also Tuesday night, the Grange is starting up their Bingo games again. Come in for dinner, stay for bingo at 7 p.m.
We had to rework the board and fix the lights that show which numbers have been called, but it's repaired and we're ready to go.
Sew What!? is the sewing/quilting group at the Grange. We usually get together on Wednesdays, but several of the Stonyford quilters are visiting the quilt group in Paskenta on Tuesday this week.
The Chit Chat ladies are meeting at the Grange on Wednesday.
The Paskenta Quilters meet every Tuesday in their Community Hall. They are a great bunch, very warm and welcoming. We always have a great time up there. It's nice to see other groups and their work. I come away with new ideas each time I visit them.
Zumba is coming to the Grange. It's the current dance/exercise craze; it's quite a workout. It'll be two nights a week, Thursdays and Fridays, at 4:45 p.m. — led by DVD.
Recommended donation is $1 to the Grange. Call Laurie or Linda for info, 963-3050.
The Flea Market at the Grange is still in the planning for May 26. It'll be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tables inside or space outside are available, call Linda. It's a good way to get rid of those unwanted items that someone else might appreciate.
We'll have a snack bar with hot-dogs, chili dogs, etc. And we'll have a table with bake sale goods.
St. Mary of the Mountain Catholic Church mass is held on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. Come and visit this historic church, and see our new Stations of the Cross.
