Snow Lake News
By Sue Shears

Projects underway for new year

Hello Snow Lakers: Welcome to the new year. I know, I am a little late, but did you make your new year’s resolutions? I did, but you know how that is. I usually forget them within a week or two. One of mine is regarding cooking, and I know my friends are laughing now, but I have moved my cookbooks to a shelf in the kitchen. They won’t believe it, but I have four feet of books within my reach. I plan to make one receipe from one book each week. I hope I can find some easy ones. Wish me luck!

Regarding the sick people on the lake, Laurie Pierpont’s mother, Sara Pierpont is in intensive care in the Oxford hospital. J. W. Carter is still in Memphis. Mickey Snow is having a knee operation on January 26. Dolly Griffin’s granddaughter died last week. She lived in Texas. Our prayers are with the people mentioned above.

Please call Sue Wooley Graves 224-3264. If you know of anyone sick or needing help. If you know of someone I have missed, please call me at 224-3913.

Remember, the Ladies Auxiliary of the Snow Lake Volunteer Fire Department still has new Snow Lake Cookbooks for sale. You can find them at Ashland Discount Store on Hwy. 4. Or call Frances Simpson at 224-3469 or Jane Edwards 224-3435. We also have some Fire Department jackets $30 and $35, sweat shirts $12. You can find them at Ashland Discount Store on Hwy 4, and Town Hall.

We are beginning a New Year, so the Ladies Auxiliary of the Snow Lake Volunteer Fire Department has begun new projects. They will have their annual garage sale on Saturday, May 7 at the Ashland Discount Outlet Store on Hwy 5. If you have something to contribute, please take it to the store anytime they are open, or call Sue Shears 224-3913 or Scelette Blake 224-9251 and we will pick it up.

You will get a laugh out of this - I found a desk for sale, but no one was interested so they marked thru the price and wrote FREE. I sent my husband and father-in-law to pick it up and they couldn’t handle it. They had to find a hill, back up the truck, and slide the desk into the truck. I doubt they will help me next time.

Remember, guests are always welcome to come to any of our events.

Also, remember, the Community Center is available for rental for a party, etc; just contact Emily Koen 224-8707.

Saturday, Jan. 22 - 6:30 p.m. Potluck - everyone is invited.

Thursday, Feb. 3 - 6:30 p.m. Town Meeting. Please come and support our town officials.

Saturday, Feb. 12 - 7-9 a.m. Breakfast followed by the Corporation meeting at 9 a.m.

Our Calendar Quote. “Find out the birth dates of people you admire. They’ll be thrilled to receive a birthday card from you.”

Have a good week, and hope to see you next week.
