Spooner Advocate - Springbrook Column, October 23, 2014

Good day friends-  Hope that everyone  is enjoying the fall weather. The trees sure were beautiful this year! But they sure seemed to turn quickly! I think the whole summer and fall has gone by in a blur! I have to say I am not looking forward to the cold weather that is going to be coming soon! No way! Is everyone ready for the snow when it comes?

Today would have been my dad's 75th birthday. Its hard to believe that he has been gone for 19 years already. My daughter was born the year after he passed away. It is sad sometimes to think of all the things I missed out on with my dad being he passed so early. If you have someone in your own life that means alot to you please let them know, they will not be here forever. Life really is too short to live like there is always a tomorrow.... sometimes there is not one!

Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College is hosting a College Fair and Higher Education Youth Experience on Thursday November 6, 2014. It will be held in the Cultural Resource Center and the Student Center from 9:30- 2:30 PM. This is a great event for high schools to bring the future students to LCO and see what they want to do when they graduate. There will be representatives from other Colleges and Universities that will be here to answer questions and give people some direction. Sure would like it if the Homeschooling groups out there came and checked out the fair! Everyone is welcome here at Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College- you do not need to be Ojibwe to attend LCO! Hope to see you there,
Sherrine called and wanted to let the area know that they are sorry but there will not be a harvest supper this fall at the Namekagon Congregational Church in Earl. They are unable to get it together as they are an older congregation and their church numbers are down. They would all like to thank you for your support in the past! 

Do you know anyone that would like to get their GED? Maybe its you that would like to get your GED and go on to take some college classes. Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College is both a place where you can study for your  GED as well as test for it. f you would like more information please call 715-634-4790 and ask for Nicole.

Strange request but if there are any hunters or trappers out there that do not want their hides, bear fat, feathers, etc please let them know I would be interested. I use various things in soaps, lotions and beaded items. Also anyone have any porcupine quills. I appreciate any help!

Does anyone out there have sewing/quilting items that they are no longer using? Reason I ask is that we have been holding sewing classes at the college and there are always people that do not have a machine. If you would like to donate anything like this just let me know and I can figure a time to pick it up. I know I am a sewing machine collector- I have an old singer (doesn't work), my Grandma Andre's machine, and the machine my friend Anita gave me- this is an oldie but goodie and what I sew on! Anita gave me this machine when I decided to get back into quilting- she also shared a rotary cutter and mat with me! She is awesome!
Wow can you believe it is already time to celebrate those October birthdays! I love October and all the fun fall things to! If you have a birthday this month know that you are blessed to be born in a wonderful fall month! Happy birthday to my step dad Robert, my sister, my mother, my cousin Michelle. Happy birthday to all you October folks- have a beautiful day and remember we love you! Hugs!
