Spooner Advocate- Springbrook Column- February 13, 2014

Good afternoon friends- It is suppose to be turning cold again! Are ever going to start warming up and stay there? I know the car was cranky this morning when I went out to start it. But she finally got warm enough to get going! 

I totally forgot to say happy birthday to all the folks born in February! I have to say that the nicest, most wonderful  people are born this month! Yes... you guessed it I have a birthday this I will not tell you how old I am! A lady must keep her secrets! Happy birthday goes to Leif Nestingen on the 9th, Haley Bintner on the 20th, and her mom Gail Koskela on the 22nd. I sure hope you do something fun and exciting, with friends and family for your birthday. Remember we love you!
The church in Earl had a good turn out for their pie sale. I went to the sale and ate some wonderful soup, Mikhaila brought her boyfriend, his mom and grandma- they all enjoyed the soup and we all bid on some raffle items. We won four different raffles! It was a great time with lots of great stuff to look at and buy! Remember to put it on your calendar next year! A big thanks to all the men and woman who put the sale together!

Did you guys know there is a Feed Store in Trego? Well I did not know that there was until my friend Susie Kuha told me that there was this cute little store in Trego called Trego Mercantile. I have to say they have alittle of everything- snacks, bait, feeds. So if you are in that area why not stop in and see what they have to offer. While you are there you can pick up some soap that Susie makes, its nicely packaged up there for sale. The location is N7340 Benson Blvd in Trego, their number 715-635-3511.
