Spooner Advocate- Springbrook Column- December 11, 2014

Good morning! We are experiencing a little snow out there. At least we are not getting a ton of it. 

I hope this finds people happily getting ready for the Christmas holiday. I know that it can be a very stressed time of the year. If you are experiencing being overwhelmed, sad or depression please reach out for help. There are so many things that can set a person off and make whatever problem seem huge and overwhelming. Depression is not something to be ashamed of! I know personally we have recently gone through three suicide attempts and it is horrible. If you know of someone who has depression or needs some help please gently but firmly help them get the help that they need.

Are you a quilter? Remember that the Hayward Piecemakers Quilt Club meets once a month on the second Monday at the Hayward Wesleyan Church at 10 a.m. This is a NEW location- they use to meet at the library in Hayward.

There is a cookie and Candy walk from 9am-1 pm Saturday Dec.13th at the First United Methodist church of Exeland.

There is a Holiday Craft Fair going to be held at the LCO Community College on Dec 12th from 10am - 3pm. Vendors are welcome, the price is $5.00 to set up a table. Please call Amber at the college, 715-634-4790 x156.

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, tallow 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!
Happy birthday to all the people in December!  Happy birthday to each one of you- you are special! Charlene Ruth Gordon have a great birthday! December folks- have a beautiful day and remember we love you! Hugs!
I know that there HAS to be some events going on out there! Please let me know!
