Trout Lake Newswriters

Whether you have spent the weekend celebrating Easter, spring's weak appearance or a week off of school, there is something in the air. My nose seems to think that it involves pollen, but if that means warmer times ahead, then I say here, here! Crocuses and snow drops have been spotted around Trout Lake, and that means that daffodils and tulips are soon to follow.
The snow may still be gathering on Sleeping Beauty now and then, but this is the time of year to start thinking about what to plant, and if you are lucky enough to have a green house or other seed starting capabilities, then you can be putting those seeds in the soil. At the Trout Lake School, the fourth/fifth grade class has been involved in a tomato seed starting project. The starts are a few inches tall and continuing to grow. Students will help to plant them in the Trout Lake CSA Farm hoop house in a few weeks. If successful, some of those tomatoes will make their way back into next year's Farm2School lunches.
The Presbyterian church will present its Third Tuesday Supper and Presentation, April 17. The presenter will be Rick McClure from the US Forest Service. He will share their latest "dig."
Lastly, help support the school and sign up for the annual Trout Lake Run on April 21. Race starts at 9 a.m.
On March 25, an election of officers for the Trout Lake Saturday Market was held. New officers will be Patty Gray, president; Fran Gower, vice president; Cathy Walker, treasurer; and Janine Scott, secretary. Dates for this year's market will be June 30 through Sept. 1, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the grange hall.
Volunteers to run the community table are needed. It's an excellent opportunity for teen community service. One persons is needed each week.
Persons interested in being in the kitchen, providing light breakfast and light lunch can contact Patty at 493-8958. The Nunez family is no longer available to offer the meals.
