Spooner Advocate Column- March 28, 2013

Good morning- I am so glad to be back in our little neck of the woods! I am sorry that I missed the column last week I was in Green Bay for the AIHEC Conference.  The AIHEC Conference is held yearly, in different states for all the Native Colleges from across the US to come to and compete in different categories. It was a great time, I met some really nice people, competed against worthy advocates and got to see Green Bay too! LCO Community College did a great job and came home with many awards. I am proud of all the hard work and time that all the competitors put into their events. You all did an amazing job and showed everyone that LCO Community College can really do battle against the other Colleges! I look forward to going again next year and winning even more competitions!
I want to send out a BIG THANK YOU to whoever plowed my driveway on the last snow fall. I am hoping that we are seeing the last of the snow, however it is still March! I am so thankful for you! You have no idea what a blessing that you have been to us!
The next election for the town of Springbrook is April 2. Springbrook will hold its meetings and elections at the VFW meeting room in Springbrook until further notice. The polls are open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Questions, please call Kathy Helm, 715.766.2155.
Happy birthday to all those March birthdays out there! Hope you have a beautiful birthday. You are special, and we love you!

Well Easter is right around the corner, hard to believe. I pray that you all have a wonderful time during this Easter holiday and Spring break. Remember God loves you, even if we think He can't/won't/doesn't. He would not have sent his son Jesus to take our punishment if He did not cherish us. I wish all my readers and their families a blessed Easter.
