Spooner Advocate Column- June 27, 2013

Hello there neighbor- Well it is either raining or it is 85 in the shade. It is one of these summers I guess! I am still trying to get my own garden in and well it has been a struggle! I have gotten most of the tools and the plants to all the outreach sites that I am planting community gardens at- they are not all planted at this time. But they have the tools and if it stays nice and stops raining we should have them planted this week! Please say a prayer for me as I am doing alot of traveling and well there have been obstacles so just pray it all goes good.

Musky Fest was this weekend in Hayward and it sure looked like there was alot of people in town for the events. I sure hope all the visitors have fun while they are in our great state of WI. To all the new folks out there thanks for coming to WI, we hope you like your stay! Please have a safe vacation while you are here.


Happy Birthday to all those of you that have June birthdays. I hope you enjoy the sun and all the beautiful  flowers, the flowering trees. Have a beautiful day and we love you!  
I have to say a BIG thank you to all the people that helped put on the Sawyer County Dairy Breakfast at the Hayward fairgrounds! You all did a wonderful job! It was a bit rainy but hey none of us melted and we warmed up with a yummy breakfast. It is always fun to meet up with old friends-Teresa from Springbrook Organic Dairy, as always she had her wonderful products with for all of us to enjoy! It was fun to meet up with the Anderson family from Springbrook and eat breakfast with them. It always amazes Deb and I how much food Kaelon and Mikhaila can put away. They both have hollow legs and of course they are always on the go. Larry and the Drifters were very good to listen too- they were even doing requests! Overall it was a great time and thanks again to all the people that work so hard to get this put together every year!
The Spooner Memorial Library has their Summer Reading Program up- sounds like they are off to a really good start with all the folks that they have signed up! They offer an Adult reading program, a Teen-Ager as well as a preschool-12 year old reading program. Mikhaila and I participated in the one last year and it was just a great reason to read a book.... like I need a reason! LOL Anyway the ladies at the library need you to sign-up you and your kids, there are great prizes to win as well! You can get ahold of them at, on FaceBook at Spooner Memorial Library or 715-635-2792.
The Sherman & Ruth Weiss Community Library have started their summer reading program. You can sign your Pre-K-4th graders up at the library. Its a great way to get kids to spend time reading! Reading can take you on an adventure as a cowboy, or be the first woman to fly a plane- it all can happen while reading a book! For more information please check out the website or give them a call at 715-634-2161. Go find a tree to sit under while reading a book.....let your imagination take you on a great adventure!
