Not much happens this time of year. Depending on the weather, which is always an adventure, we can be outside working or playing or stay inside, warm and dry. Hopefully we won’t have too much shoveling left and then in a few weeks things will start to bloom.

We had a great weekend with out-of-town family. The weather cooperated and they were able to make the trip.

A correction from last week, the difference between the first and fourth place catch in the perch fishing contest was three-quarters of an inch.

March is National Youth Art Month.

The Glen Arbor Art Center celebrates the work of young creatives with an exhibition by Glen Lake elementary school sixth-graders taught by Leah Lawson, Glen Lake elementary art teacher, and the GAAC’s After School Art kids led by instructor Sarah Cheek-Toomey. The show runs from March 1 until March 23 and starts at 9 a.m. The show started in 1961 by the Art & Creative Materials Institute. Youth Art month focuses on the importance of art education and citizenship, as a contributor to the quality of life.

What we have to look forward to: St. Patty’s day, time change and return of snowbirds.

Happy Birthday wishes to Jim Fowler, Carol Hilton, Jody Dodson, John Rude, Bernard Meehan, Steve Glazier, Bob Jones, Mel Martin, Stan Pykosz, Carlotta Meehan and Glen Lake Grauman.

Be careful on the ice, it can be a little sketchy this time of year.
