Spooner Advocate- Springbrook Column, February 27, 2014

Good afternoon friends- I sure hope this finds you dug out of all the snow that we received. I know I had a ton of over at my house and with the wind whipping around it all drifted right across my driveway! It was a nightmare to try and get around! I hope everyone was safe while removing snow or while driving around. It sure looks beautiful looking outside with the sun shining, but is cold if you do need to go out for very long! Please be safe when you are out and about folks, the banks at that end of the street are TALL! Always double check to see if it is safe to go.

Congrats to all the people that came and participated in the Birkie! Wow you guys are troopers. A big thanks to all the volunteers, skis, fans, sponsors and those that had to help move all the snow around. We hope everyone had a good time at all the events and had fun. Congrats to all the winners!
