Perhaps someone shouldn’t have mentioned the fact that Spring was here. Maybe this year, Spring is similar to some folks trying to leave their house in the morning. They make a few trips back inside before leaving. It doesn’t mean we cannot say “Spring is on its way,” it just needs to get everything together. We wouldn’t want it to forget the flowers or the songbirds or the warm bright sunshine, would we? So, the winter door might swing open a few more times. And the good thing about snow? Sooner or later, it always melts. Might take a while, but it will eventually be water to grow pretty things.
The Allen’s grew some handsome boys. Sutter will turn another year stronger March 4. Hunter Petsch, a young man who is already strong, celebrates March 5. Richard Person will blow out his candles March 8. And Dana Mirich grows another year prettier March 9.
If the changing of the seasons doesn’t interest you, perhaps the news from the town council will. They meet again Thursday, March 9 at 7 p.m.
Whenever Spring arrives, it is nice to greet her with a clean house. the Women’s Auxiliary has brooms available at the town hall. The money funds their programs and the brooms are better than you could get in any store. Sweep away the dank of winter and help out their great organization.
Just like Spring, Easter is right around the corner, less than 40 days to be exact. The Easter Egg hunt is in the process of being planned. If you would like to donate candy or are interested in helping with the festivities this year, contact the community center. They have not picked the date for the fun, but it will be close to Easter.
Maybe you need a little something to warm you until Spring arrives with her warm winds. The Wyoming Malting Facility in Pine Bluffs will have its ribbon cutting ceremony March 17. They will have an Open House from 3 p.m. until 4 p.m. with refreshments served at Pine Bowl afterward. The facility will buy all their barley locally, and any product that is not sold to other spirit producers or go into their own product will be given to farmers and ranchers at no cost to feed to their livestock. They hope to use everything that comes into the facility in some way and have very little waste. Their first product produced at the site will be vodka and of course the mash from the barley. They expect to have the tasting room and tours available the middle of April or the first part of May. help us support this local effort to draw more business to our neighbors in Pine Bluffs and all of Eastern Laramie County.
