The holidays are just beginning. Enjoy Black Friday relaxing at home and avoiding the crowds, then check out two wonderful local holiday shopping opportunities right here in Trout Lake that will also support local artisans.
First, The National Honor Society Annual Holiday Market will be Saturday, Dec. 1, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the school multi-purpose room. It is a fun community event that allows local artists a chance to display their goods. The Honor Society will be serving lunch all day, handing out door prizes and providing activities for young children. If you would be interested in renting a booth contact Laurie Sherburne at 395-2294 or at the school, 395-2571.
Then hop over to the Destino Holiday Open House. Locally made art and craft, art supplies, and great holiday gifts. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Destino will be open for shopping, and from 4 to 7 p.m. there will be the Holiday Party and cheese tasting with Cascadia Creamery. Wine and goodies will be served.
Both of these opportunities will help to support your friends and neighbors while you find that special something you have on your list.
But perhaps the best thing this year for the holidays may be learning to save a life. Dec. 12 at the Trout Lake Abbey the American Heart Association will present a first aid, hands only CPR, and auto defibrillator class from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cost is $45, and checks are payable to instructor Brad Knowland. Contact Sarah Cieslinski at Trout Lake Abbey at 395-2030 to register. Space is limited, so please sign up soon.
Lastly, the Trout Lake Care steering committee is asking for the community to complete a survey about the unmet needs of Trout Lakers needing additional care. If you have not completed one, please contact Ray Thygesen, 395-2318. Even community members who are not in need of in-home care or additional support are encouraged to complete one.
Enjoy your family and friends this weekend!
