Mobile Food Pantry coming
Nov. 18 and Dec. 16, 10:30 a.m., at the Walker Senior Center, there will be the arrival of a Mobile Food Pantry, which will have more varieties of items than our commodities distribution has had previously. This will be coming from the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, through a working arrangement with IMACA of Mono County. In 2012, the deliveries will be on the fourth Friday of every month, also at 10:30 a.m. To get more information, you can call IMACA at (800) 541-1822, ext. 26.
Women’s Club bazaar
Nov. 20, at the Walker Community Building, the Antelope Valley Women’s Club will hold their 44th annual Christmas Bazaar. The bazaar will begin at noon, with dinner of roast beef or turkey available from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Dinner cost will be $12 for adults and $5 for children from 3 to 10 years of age.
There will be several activities during the afternoon and evening, including many vendors with a variety of items available, raffles, and door prizes for dinner participants. There will also be a a silent auction of ranch memorabilia. A very special quilt, made by the late Ann Brumley, will also be raffled. This is always a good place to look for those special Christmas gifts, as well as having some good food. The proceeds go toward the Women’s Club charitable activities, including their scholarship fund. Come on down and get in the holiday spirit.
Memorial for a special lady
Nov. 5, 11 a.m. at the Walker Community Building, there will be a memorial service for Ann Brumley who recently passed on. I know that she was dear to many of our local residents, so this is your chance to bid a fond farewell to her.
This and that
The Second Summer Fishing Derby is still going strong. There are still tagged fish to be caught, and the weather is still good for fishing the river. When you catch a fish, take it to the Walker Country Store to win a prize, even if the fish you catch isn’t tagged.
High school football
Last Friday night, the Coleville Wolves defeated Pyramid Lake 46-0, winning their league championship. This Saturday, they will be at home playing Mineral County at 1 p.m. Since the season is drawing to a close, let’s get out there and cheer them on.
