There are still two days before the official start of winter as I write, but it came a little early to us here on the Island. I hope the cold temperatures are gone for at least over the holidays, but I must say I think all this snow is great! I know, I know, I’m lucky enough not to have to shovel too much, but it sure looks beautiful out there this morning. The big blue spruce trees are just loaded with the snow and I know the kids love to get out and play as well as those who like to snowmachine. There are lots of nice Christmas lights out at people’s homes now, try and take a ride around to enjoy them.
There are still lots of things going on at the museum starting up again in January. On January 7 the leisure art and hobby group will meet starting at 1 pm. Be sure to come out and enjoy this time with friends and bring your painting, knitting, quilting, sewing or whatever your craft is.
On the 13th of the month quilting classes will resume with Linda from the Needle Box. Call her for more info. This is now on the second and fourth Monday afternoons of the month starting at 1 pm.
There will be a special show about the Patton family history on January 16 at 7 pm. This is by Zoe McDougall and then on the 25th there is a session on writing your family history by Petra Wall. Both of these events are presented by the Genealogy group and will be very informative.
Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season. I hope you get everything that was on your wish list and have a great time with family and friends. Merry Christmas to everyone!
