Help neighbors, give to Christmas basket project


Finally we had snow, not much but still much prettier than the ice storms that preceded the snow. It created a festive holiday spirit for the Holiday Market fundraiser for the National Honor Society held at the school on Saturday. The Market, always a fun, friendly event with good food and good locally produced items for sale, was well attended and sales were good. Many thanks to the Honor Society for providing this opportunity for local artists, crafters, and groups to obtain recognition and make money.

Likewise on Saturday, Fortuna art studio and school for the Arts had their grand opening followed by a very well attended concert by Lincoln Crockett. Even with 80 or more folks in attendance, the building was not packed; quite a crowd for Trout Lake.

The Baptist Church is accepting donations of food and/or money for the Christmas Baskets that they distribute seasonally to the local folks in need of help. Donations will be accepted until 10 a.m. on Dec. 22. Please drop your donations off at the church. If there are questions please contact Ruth at 2712. Let’s help the church provide help for as many as need it by giving generously this holiday season.

Looking forward, the Columbia Land Trust will make a presentation at the Community Council meeting on Jan. 7 about farmland preservation in the Trout Lake Valley. Preservation would help maintain the rural, undeveloped, and uncrowded character of the Valley for the benefit of all residents, human and otherwise. We’re looking forward to learning more about this topic at the meeting, and hope lots of other valley residents are also interested and come to the meeting. The Council meeting is held in the school in a classroom at 7 p.m. As the result of the last election, the Council has new members Zach Miller, Michael Kelly and Gail Phares. Welcome and thanks to these folks who are willing to give their time to ensure the welfare of the Valley.

The Winter Concert will be held at the school on Dec. 16, at 6:30 p.m. followed by the arrival of Santa. The concert is a fun community event that contributes to the holiday spirit here in the Valley.
