Winter is truly here! Snow, snow and cold temperatures bring back many memories for the older residents. We certainly don't have as much snow as in 1978, but there is enough for snowmobilers, skiers and all who enjoy the winter outdoor sports. Please be cautious if travelling over lakes.
The Jolly 10 gathered at the home of Ken & Eleanor Sturman for their first dinner together in 2018. This gathering turned out to be the Jolly 8, as one couple are enjoying the cool weather in Florida.
There is a nasty flu bug making its presence known around this area. Hoping all feel better soon.
