Saturday Market will open the weekend of June 30 at the Trout Lake Grange Hall. Held every Saturday until Labor Day at the Grange, this is a wonderful opportunity to purchase local crafts, baked goods, produce and other unique items.
The Trout Lake Grange Hall recently got a bright new green roof when Bob Jolley's Construction crew repaired the damage done by the tree that blew down in November. The Grange Hall is truly an historical building in Trout Lake, having been the venue for many Grange events, the Saturday Market, dances, reunions, birthday parties, weddings and other celebrations, it has served as our community center for many years and hopefully many more years to come.
