Donations for the Rummage Sale are pouring in and that is good. However if you wish to donate items to the sale, please call Coralee and arrange a time to drop off them off. There is no porch anymore, the storm in January having removed the roof. If items are just left outside the door there is the risk that they will be damaged by rain which would make them not a bit valuable for the sale. If the items are just left outside, even in good weather, Coralee must move them inside by herself which makes extra work for an already very busy person, So please, please call Coralee at 395-2281 before you deliver.

Here's hoping that the Robotics Team does well at the international competition this week in St. Louis. We are rooting for the team to win and are hoping that the trip goes well.
Trout Lake has lost three long time residents in the last two months: Bettina McCuistion, Don Wilmer and most recently Jerry Wood; their contributions to life in the town will be missed. The memorial service for Jerry, a native Trout Lakian and a long time teacher at the school, was very well attended and remarkably quite humorous. Many friends told very amusing stories about his life and spoke of his impact on their lives.
