Winter is still on the way according to the calendar but this gloomy rain and the grey skies make it feel as if it is already here. Just in time to prepare for the coming season there will be a Winter Gear Swap at the Trout Lake Grange Hall on Dec. 9 from 1 to 4 p.m. Bring winter clothes, snow equipment, boots or other winter gear that is clean and in good condition to swap, give away or sell as you wish. Items can be brought to the grange by 1 p.m. or if you cannot attend but want your gear to be there call Nina or Vickie at 395-2125 to have it picked up. There will be coffee, teas, hot chocolate and snacks. In addition to items to sell or trade, bring a hand project to do while you socialize, or your music and your good cheer. Donations will be accepted for the grange.
For folks who do not mind being out in this weather, the Trout Lake Running Group is being organized. The organizer hopes to offer road runs on Wednesday mornings starting at 6:15 a.m. and adventurous runs on Sunday afternoons at 4 p.m. Both runs will start at Trout Lake School. For more information contact Valerie Vogt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a nice warm and dry indoor activity is wanted, attend the CPR, AED, and first aid class that will be offered at the Trout Lake Abby on Dec. 12 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. To register or for information contact Sarah Gieslinski at 395-2030.
A Toy Drive to benefit the families in the Trout Lake community and Guided Path Shelter is happening between Dec. 1 to Dec. 21. New toys will be accepted for the drive at the school and Little Mountain Hardware between the above dates.
The Annual NHS Holiday Market held at the School on Dec. 1, was fun. Lots of traditional decorations made the room festive, the food was quite tasty and there were vendors offering baked goods, clothing, jewelry, photographs, glass work, pottery, prints and puppets. Was a wonderful opportunity to see the neighbors, enjoy lunch and shop locally for unique Christmas gifts.
