COTTONWOOD The St. Mary’s Mardi Gras Fund-raiser is just around the corner on March 25. We will have a prime rib dinner, catered by Rodonna’s, as well as live and silent auctions. This year we have guns, fishing trips, Stihl chain saws and a cord of wood, one ton of pellets, and many more items up for bid. We have a great DJ to provide music and the Black Jack tables will be running. Tickets are $35 each and are available at the front desk at the hospital, or you can purchase them at the door. We hope you all can make it!
I would like to recognize all road district workers who have put in so many hours this winter keeping the snow off the roads. Also, those who clear the sidewalks at the churches and businesses, deliver the mail or the newspaper, as well as the nurses and doctors who have put in extra time because of the bad weather. Where would we be if not for you? Stuck at home with nothing to read! I want to especially recognize Lloyd Nuxoll for faithfully plowing snow around the church and community hall parking lot at Greencreek. He has been doing this every year for a long time. Good job, Lloyd!

My grandson, Lane, says it is officially spring since he shot a squirrel yesterday. At least the snow melts faster and it is starting to green up on open hillsides.
