Surface Creek

Planning for the 2015 gardening season is well underway in Cedaredge.  The annual meeting for this season has been set for Saturday, Feb. 7, at 9 a.m. at the Creekside Restaurant.

I pull into our gravel driveway and stop to get out and check the mailbox. Whoa! A gray bird shape zooms off …

The Orchard City Town Board moved through an agenda of mostly routine business at its Jan. 14 regular meeting.
Trustees dealt with the following matters:

c01 bingoNo service organization in the community contributes more effort, more consistently, and on a year-round basis for the town and its people than does the Surface Creek Valley Lions Club.
Whether it is scholarships for local students, staffing the annual Health Fair, or the club’s biggest project of eye care and vision, the Surface Creek Valley Lions are at work for others here.
A new  example of the club members’ motto of “service above self” is the twice monthly recreational bingo events the club is hosting at the Cedaredge Community Center.

c01 icefishingA day of fish, dogs, and crocks (not the swamp-dwelling kind) is in store for local people interested in outdoor winter activities and community events, and that would  include just about everyone.
They will want to mark their calendars for Saturday, Feb. 7, because on that day, in addition to the second annual “Crockpots for Critters” fundraiser in the afternoon, there will also be two popular outdoor events in the morning.
Atop Grand Mesa, the third annual ice fishing contest with cash prizes is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Island Lake. And just a little way up the road from there, the ninth annual Grand Mesa Summit Challenge sled dog races will be open to all animal-loving spectators to watch.
