After a glorious “Indian Summer” during October, there has been storm activity as November begins.
Interestingly enough, the power went out just after I typed that sentence! Then it’s time to see what can be done by lantern and flash light. It also is a reminder to recharge our “devices” (cell phones, “smartphones”, tablets, laptops, etc.) regularly and to know where the plug-in phone is. (The plug-in phone doesn’t require electricity in order to work and the phone system has battery back-up.)
Another bit of Ryderwood-specific tech trivia has to do with making calls from our 295-xxxx land-line phones to cell phones. The 360 Area Code is required unless the cell phone was activated in Longview/Cowlitz Co. All other calls require dialing an Area Code and long-distance service on the land-line phone.
Guess what? The giant pumpkin on the front porch of the Café has survived after all and some did try some magic marker decorating! Thanks to the TownCrier for showcasing the 9th Annual Arts & Crafts Fair in last week’s issue – this little Town really is such a special place.
This Friday’s Café entrée is Chicken or Veggie Stir-Fry and the meal includes everything from salad to dessert. Dinner is served at 5 p.m. Call Linda (preferably by Wednesday) at 295-0875 to make reservations. Tuesday’s Nutrition Lunch (served at noon in Community Hall) entree is Beef Pot Roast – call Jan at 295-0597 by Monday afternoon.
There will be “Open Mic” at the Café on Saturday evening at 7 p.m. followed by Ice Cream Social & Card Bingo on Sunday at 6 p.m. at the Community Hall. Happy Veterans Day on Monday – the Post Office will be closed. (I’m pretty sure Ryderwood flies more American flags per capita than few other places in the country.)
