Snow Lake News

Friendship Club enjoys monthly meetings in members’ homes

Hello Snow Lakers: I hope you had a good week. Ours is starting off very wet, so we have scheduled several trips out of town to take care of business. Our daughter wanted us to come into town and celebrate Valentine’s Day - a little late - but it was worth it. I got all the presents. Great day.

Mickey Snow and Vicki Fox are doing good after their knee surgery. Coy Reno was in the hospital for minor surgery on her forehead last week, but she is out now and staying with her daughter in Memphis. I am so sorry that I forgot to mention that last October Peg Kopaz on the west side fell off her steps and broke her ankle in two places. She wore a brace (boot) for several months, but I think she is able to get around without it now. And I think she has gone back to work. Get well soon. We extend our sympathies to the family of Harold Pannel, on Snow Lake Drive. Pannel died suddenly last week. If you know of anyone who is sick or needs help please call Sue Wooley Graves 224-3264. If you know of someone I have missed, please call me at 224-3913.

Please forgive me for not mentioning the Friendship Club the last three months. In December, we had a wonderful meeting at Laura Hoover’s very interesting and lovely home. We had our Christmas meeting with lunch and invited the husbands. In January we met at Jane Edwards’ lovely and comfortable home. This was the first meeting of the year, with the election of officers. The past officers had done such a good job, we asked them to remain on board. Jane Edwards - president, Juanita Roberson - vice-president, etc. We had a good meeting, planning activities for the coming year, and then delicious refreshments.

In February we met at Magda Russell’s spacious and unique home. We played some Valentine games, visited together; and then we welcomed our three new members: Cheyene Hunt from Ashland, Martha Protho on Lake View Drive, and Billie Croll on Snow Lake Drive. Welcome to our club!

We hope you will enjoy being with us. We also wish to mention that two of our members, Blondine Crawford and Mary Frazier have been sick and haven’t attended for several months. We hope their health will improve and they will be back with us. Good luck Blondine and Mary. We are thinking of you.

Remember, the Ladies Auxiliary of the Snow Lake VFD still have new Snow Lake Cookbooks for sale. You can find them at Ashland Discount Store on Hwy. 4.

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.
