Spooner Advocate- Springbrook/Trego Column, February 5, 2015

Good morning! I hope everyone is enjoying the sun out there today. Did everyone watch the Super Bowl? I hope your team won! I have to say I was good with whoever won, but that last play by the Seahawks was kind of hard to accept! 

THIS WEEKEND!  I will have my 2nd Annual Seed Swap on February 8, 2015 from 10:30- 1:00. This year it will be held at the Spooner Ag Station. The Spooner Ag Station is right outside Spooner on Hwy 70- the address is W6646 Hwy 70, 715-635-3735. I will have a sign up outside so that you know your at the right place. Please feel free to come and swap seeds, donate seeds, tubers, bulbs, old gardening magazines/books. Or just come by and chat with me and some other "seedy" people! I will have refreshments so come by and check out the swap. If you can't make it and have seeds to donate please feel free to drop them off in advance at the Ag Station- Kevin, Otto or Lorraine can help you out. I look forward to seeing all of you!

Fourth Annual Triple Treat is being held this Saturday February 7, 2015 from 11:00-1:30 pm at Earl Church in Earl,WI. If you ave not gone to this event before please put it on your calendar! There will be soup and rolls-all you can eat for $4.50 until they run out, Homemade Pies- various flavors and they are ALL AWESOME! They also have a flea market, Chinese Auction, silent auction and more! My advice is come early, bring your wallet!! They always have awesome soup, you will want to get a pie early as they ALWAYS sell out. Plus they always have some great crafts and a wonderful silent auction! I hope to see you all there! Thanks Bonnie for letting me know that this is going on!

A BIG thanks to Russ Parker for the awesome bag of Porcupine quills! I am soooo excited to use them in some earring projects, and maybe on some hair clips!

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.

Does anyone out there have any old fishing equipment out there that they do not need or want? I am looking to get some stuff together and hopefully get some people out there fishing. Mikhaila went over the winter break and she LOVED it! So I was hoping to get her and some of her friends, me out there on the ice to relearn this awesome winter sport.

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!
