BOB Prepared

Disaster preparedness is something you cannot take for granted.

Hurricanes, floods, wildfires can leave you empty handed. This is an overview of the Bug Out Bag, or the grab-in- a-hurry-and-run supplies for the next three days.

Folk Jam…

Folk Jam will be on Sunday, December 23, 1:30 p.m.

Folk Music Jam Sessions are hosted the second and fourth Sunday of the month. Jam sessions are mostly folk, country and bluegrass music with other styles thrown in from time to time.

This month’s Jam is December 23, 1:30-5:00 p.m. If you have any more questions contact Erv Troyer, 463-2247, or Maple Wood at 463-4022,

Winter Art Class…

January’s art class on Saturday, January 12, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., is an oil project. The scene is an early morning northern lake with the mist still rising from water. Nearby is a rocky island, and perhaps a loon in the distance.

Supplies are provided. Bring your own paints and brushes if you have them. Also, bring your lunch.
