Albin News


If you listen close enough, you can hear the hum of the days passing by with no fanfare. The only drum beat of the days is often our own hearts keeping time with the hours of deep winter. A few days of warm sunshine is the most jazz we get in these dull days of late January. Maybe what we need is an inauguration of spring a few months early. Something to plant, houses to clean, livestock to welcome and brand, something to do.

This hum drum time of year might lead you to going without lunch. Instead of having your stomach grumble hatred toward you till dinner, why not stop by the Community Center for a hot lunch. Today, Thursday, January 26, they are having cheeseburgers, chips and baked beans. January 27 is Kielbasa with noodles, broccoli and cauliflower. Next week is chicken Parmesan pasta with vegetables, pork roast with mashed potatoes and corn, chicken with rice and vegetables, green bean casserole with rolls next Thursday and Friday is french dip with chips and potato salad. All meals include the salad bar, beverage and dessert. The menu is subject to change due to availability. Under 10 and over 60 diners are $6, the rest of us are $8.50.

The gym floor is about half in as you read this, and looks to be all the way done by the end of this week. There will be some time to set it, but by the first of February, the gym should be good to go for rentals or other events. Stop by, have lunch and see the new floor.

If lunch with neighbors and friends isn’t enough to get you over the January blues, how about some basketball. The new floor will welcome the Albin Wildcats for their next home game February 9. The junior boys play at 5:30 p.m. with the senior boys taking the court at 6:30 p.m. Concessions will be available. The only game lost among the three teams was the girls loss to Burns. This is a good year to cheer them on. Go Wildcats.

Greg Hansen will celebrate his birthday February 5. In addition to being a great husband to Ginny, a fabulous son-in-law to John and Suzi Eklund, and an awesome dad, he takes time to coach our young boys basketball team. Drop him a card if you get a chance.

You might want to include two cards in the envelope. Their middle son, LJ, celebrated his birthday Sunday, January 22.

The town council will sign their resolution at the February meeting. They will also make final decisions on the sixth penny tax projects as well. There was a bit of a hold up from other entities on the projects final go ahead.

Anyone interested in a monthly pot luck and game night, contact the town hall and leave a message for Charlene Smith. She thought it might be fun to start a night out of the house but wanted to see if anyone else would be interested.
