HEY EVERYBODY....DON'T FORGET THE HUBBARD HALL AUCTION - Tonight, February 29th. Preview and silent auction begins at 7:00 pm and Live Auction with Ron Seifert begins at 8:00 pm sharp. Admission is only $5.00 with cash bar, desserts and hors d'oeuvres available.

Here we are, Sadie Hawkins' Day! Remember that one - the day a woman supposedly gets to ask the man to marry her? Well, it really isn't February 29th at all. According to the Lil' Abner web site: Sadie Hawkins Day, an American folk event, made its debut in Al Capp's Li'l Abner strip November 15, 1937. Sadie Hawkins was "the homeliest gal in the hills" who grew tired of waiting for the fellows to come a courtin'." Sorry Ladies, you'll have to wait until November.

Lost marriage proposals aside, it would be nice to have someone help shovel the snow, because I'm so all over shoveling snow for this year, aren't you? Seems we've been getting quite a bit of the white, with another storm due to come in this evening.

It's been just another week here in Cambridge, NY.
