On Sunday, Dec. 12, Mary Calahan hosted the Trout Lake Community Club Christmas party at her home. Page Logan, president, held a short meeting. The former Community Club cookbook was reviewed. Recipes are being solicited for another Community Club Cookbook. It will be for sale next year. A special recipe collection sheet was handed out at the meeting. If you have a special recipe or recipes bring them to 2170 Highway 141 at the Trout Lake Hardware Store. After the meeting the party began. Everyone brought a snack and a gift. Everyone had a good time. Gifts were exchanged. Any woman who lives near Trout Lake can belong to the Community Club.
Also on Dec. 12, the Trout Lake Cabin Fever committee held its last planning meeting of the year. It looks like most details are worked out for the January 29 and 30, 2005 event. On Saturday there will be a X-C ski race, wildlife biologist led snow shoe walk, a pine needle basketry class, children/family games and snow sculpture contest; bird 'cabin' building, a chili 'cook off', a community dinner, a Forest Service Centennial slide show, and a children's movie. On Sunday, forest service archaeologists in period attire will hold an open house at the historic Gotchen Creek Guard Station. A leader will be provided for the approximate six-mile X-C ski tour. Additional details for this fourth annual event will be provided in the January issue of the Trout Lake School publication Village Voice or you can call Ray Thygesen at 395-2318.
