Celebrate the fall season, with its colorful foliage of orange, red and gold by coming to the annual Holiday Bazaar, sponsored by the Trout Lake Community Club. It will be held at the Trout Lake school on Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Come early, get out of the rain, and enjoy a treat to go with your coffee. It is a good time to meet with your friends and neighbors. A tasty, reasonably priced soft taco lunch will be served. There will be a drawing every hour. Each adult will be given a ticket as they enter, and a prize awarded, courtesy of the vendors. There will be variety of holiday ideas on display. Again this year, we will have activities for all ages. Come express your creativity -- there will be items you can make as well as various gifts for sale. We invite you to visit the Holiday Bazaar and enjoy a lively, fun-filled event.
Another Trout Lake Community event is the traditional Thanksgiving Feast on Monday, Nov. 19 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This is a great time to meet your new neighbors. Bring your favorite dish to share, a salad or veggie, or rolls or dessert etc. This is a tasty potluck with delicious dishes brought by all those great cooks in the valley. The turkey, potatoes and beverages will be provided. Here is your chance to visit and have someone else cook a turkey. Over the years we have all cooked many a turkey and have a few turkey stories to tell such as:
I remember the time, a bachelor friend asked us how to cook a turkey. He wanted to impress his girlfriend. I told him how to prepare the turkey in detail. Carefully, he wrote down all the instructions. The next week I saw him again and asked how the turkey tasted. "Just terrible!" he said. "I prepared the turkey, just like you said and placed it in the oven, shutting the oven up tight. What I didn't know, since I had never used the oven was that it was self-cleaning. I had triggered the self-cleaning stove into action. I tried to rescue the turkey but the oven refused to open. I called the manager. He said he was sorry but the oven would not turn off until it was through cleaning. I took my girlfriend out to dinner. We had a good time."
Thanks to the opportunity of receiving funds from the 21st Century Grant, Trout Lake School is able to present some after school classes for students. One offered is a `Creativity with Clay' class where we can make a castle, critter pot, or wall hanging. Two sample castles are set up in the school library. This will be offered on Tuesday, Nov. 13 and Nov. 20, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the art room. Class is limited to 10 students 5th grade and up. You can sign up in the office.
Watch for other classes coming up. Happy Holidays, Sandi Thygesen writer.
