It must be winter. Trout Lake has already had snow three times. Accordingly, winter activities are being planned. The Trout Lake Cabin Fever Committee held its first meeting this past week. The Cabin Fever Festival will be on Jan. 28 and 29. On Saturday, it will feature a X-C ski race, a snowshoe nature walk, children's games, an avalanche awareness lecture, and a community potluck followed by entertainment. (There will also be an avalanche safety presentation at the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center, (541) 296-8600, on Jan. 14.) On Sunday, there will be an avalanche awareness field session and the Forest Service will hold an open house at the Peterson Prairie Cabin for skiers, snowshoers, and snowmobiles. Other events may be scheduled. The next planning meeting for the Cabin Fever Festival will be Dec. 8. Volunteers and ideas are welcome.
The Mt. Adams Nordic Ski Club board also had its first meeting of the season. The first big event planned is the Potluck and Annual Meeting of the membership planned for 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 20, in the cafeteria at Jonah Ministries. Non-member X-C skiers are welcome. Other events scheduled so far are some X-C ski lessons, another potluck with a moonlight ski on Feb. 26, and a ski tour to Glenwood on the old railroad grade. For more information on the Trout Lake Cabin Fever Festival or the Mt. Adams Nordic Ski Club, contact Ray Thygesen, 395-2318, or email@example.com.
Donations of food and cash are welcome for the community food baskets put together each year by volunteers at the Mt. Adams Baptist Church. Thanksgiving donations should be brought to the church no later than the afternoon of Nov. 20 for distribution on Nov. 21. Call Ruth BeLieu at 395-2712 for more information. Baskets will again be distributed for Christmas.
