Spooner Advocate- Springbrook Column, January 15, 2015

Good morning! Well the sun is out today but it sure has been cold out there lately! I hope that everyone is staying warm and healthy! Heard that there are some people that have been sick, wishing them a speedy recovery!

The Fond du Lac Pow- wow was awesome this last weekend! There was a good turn out and so many beautiful dancers! It was fun that we had some people from Puerto Rico there. They were very impressed with the whole event. Couldn't believe the dancers, they said they had nothing like that in Puerto Rico! Chi-Miigwech to all the people who danced, volunteered, worked the event. Thank you to the Veterans that were there! Chi- Miigwech to Black Bear Casino and all the employees!

Seed Swap in Prairie Farm, WI on Jan 17, 2015 from 10:30-1:00 pm. Held at the Prairie Farm school- yes there will be signs up! Bring your seeds to swap for new varieties, or donate some seeds you are no longer in need of. This is a fun event where you get to enjoy a cup of coffee, trade seeds, talk to other seed savers! Cris also does put together a group seed and tree order, saving you time and money! So come on out and meet some new friends!

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.
