October – Getting Ready

 

There seems to be plenty of pumpkins this year and the leaves have been spectacular for a few weeks now. We’ve certainly had our share of mixed weather, beautiful days and wet and windy ones. The wild nut crops seems to be plentiful, at least in my region, although I haven’t discovered any stumpy mushrooms in my usual haunts. The stumpies make a great mushroom soup.

October is about getting ready for the upcoming winter months. It is also fire prevention month; be sure to check home smoke alarms.

Hunting gets into full gear at the end of the month with the opening of small game.

 

 

Canadohta Lake

Don’t forget the winter clothing drive every Sunday. Slightly used and laundered clothing is being accepted, as well as new items at the Book Swap held at the Canadohta Laundromat from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Hats, gloves, coats and boots are needed.

The Book Swap and the clothing drive are organized by the Canadohta Lake Art Society. AnnBbergheim is the person in charge. She was recently elected vice president of the Canadohta Lake Area Business Association, while Dave Cherry was elected president of the organization; Karen Brozel was elected treasurer, while Tina Butler was elected secretary.
