Happy February. It is Anything Can Happen month.

Not quite Winterfest time but getting close. More later.

On Saturday don’t forget to go to the Super Soups Contest for National Homemade Soup Day at the Homestead Resort. Serving from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; local restaurants are invited. Proceeds benefit the nonprofit Buckets of Rain and they do a great job.

On the same day, Saturday, after the super soups you can enjoy Jazz North which is a little big band combining the best acoustics and electric jams for all genres. They will be performing at the Mountain Flowers Lodge at the Homestead from 7-10 p.m.

Based on the new snow we had Sunday, there should be enough snow to allow grooming on the Heritage Trail. The snow is reported to be 2 inches in open areas in 4-5 inches in forest areas. Hopefully enough snow to groom.

Condolences to friends and family of Bonnie Andrews. Bonnie was a long time neighbor of the Dairy Bar.

The next meeting of the Glen Arbor Women’s Club will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 14, at the Glen Arbor Fire Station, Emergency Services building. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and include a tour of the station to learn about home safety with a presentation by chief John Dodson.

Which reminds me, an early warning reminder to all the guys out there. Valentine’s Day is less than two weeks away.

Happy Birthday wishes to Michael Buehler, Olivia DuPont, John Mesch, Helen Esch, Gary Schiffman, Paul Walters.

There are times when I hear from people who have moved out of town and I still wish them a Happy Birthday because they want to stay in touch with our area and get the Enterprise. I heard from a former resident who took a bit of an exception to my term, “delusional Cub fan.” I guess I understand that after 100 years of losers it could possibly not make you delusional, just dizzy. I know that this non-delusional Cub fan is looking forward to opening day of the next season in Chicago. All I can say is when you come out of your bunker (Chicago) and put on your bulletproof vest with the big “C” for Cubs on it, have a great time at the ballpark but watch your back. At least this year instead of saying wait till next year, Cubs fans can say remember last year.

Again Happy Birthday Mr. Marshall. Great to hear from you.

Be careful out there, have fun, be kind, go Hawks.
