Snow returns! Good news for upcoming Cabin Fever Festival


Happy New Year to all! We hope that all of our readers have a pleasant, healthy and crisis free 2016.

Here in Trout Lake we enjoyed a white Christmas and New Year. We have about two feet of snow on the valley floor with reports that the skiing is good, maybe the best in years; good news for the skiers. And the snow pack is building on the mountain, also good news.

We passed a landmark date on Jan. 1, in addition to being the first day of the new year, it marked the anniversary of 50 years of family ownership of the Trout Lake Grocery store. Gil and Velda Meyer from Richland, bought the grocery from Gil’s brother-in-law Roy Lambdin on Jan. 1, 1966. They moved to Trout Lake with their two sons Greg and David who were both in high school. Their oldest child, a daughter, Karen had just gotten married. In October 1978 Greg and his wife Beverly moved back from Anchorage, Alaska to take over the store. Beverly and her two daughters, Alisa Meyer and Laura Clark now continue the family owned business - The Trout Lake Grocery. They wish to thank everyone for the many years of support and friendship. And we wish them many more successful years at the store.

It should be a quiet month in the town. However, February brings the Cabin Fever Festival, which should be especially fun now that we have snow. We are looking forward to it.
