Spring is Coming Amid Showers-Flowers, Fishing and Fun is At Table Rock Lake and Roaring River

Fishing Fun

The last Saturday in March started off windy but that brought the sunshine and families were out and enjoying fishing and fun.  Just about anywhere you go in Stone County or Barry Countyyou can find family fun this time of year.  If you like horse back riding you can visit Riley’s Painted Acres near Cape Fair for an hour or a day trip.  Or you can pack up a couple of rods and head over to Roaring River for an hour or a day trip fishing on the river.  Table Rock was a bit stormy in the afternoon but there were several pontoons out early on with families taking a cruise  with a picnic lunch on board. Gasoline is still reasonable, $2.50-2.60 locally and automobile transportation is the most affordable, so consider the old standby of taking a Sunday drive.  Local restuarants  offer burger and fries for $1.00 to $7.50 across both counties and then there is the old standard of Mom’s fried chicken on a picnic table at one of the State Parks.  Keep it Simple and enjoy the good life in THE OZARKS–from your friends at OZARKADVERTISER.COM.

Dogwood Trails Garden Club hosting Garage Sale

Saturday, March 27, at 8 a.m. until 12 noon, the Dogwood Trails Garden Club will be hosting a garage sale at the Community building south of the bridge.  This is an extra fundraising event for the club who will have plants for sale later in the spring.  This fine group is known for many beautiful lawns and many gifts of labor and landscaping in the community.


Monday Night Lion’s Club Meeting Agenda

The  March evening meeting will be on Monday, March 22nd at 6:00pm at the community center.  This will be our usual POTLUCK dinner.  A reminder, don’t everyone bring desserts and don’t forget the serving utensils.  Be generous, we’re expecting a crowd! 

 The guest speaker will be Mr. Ron Boyer who will discuss the controversy surrounding global warming.  Mr. Boyer heads the conservative group “Scientists for Truth” which recently held a national seminar in Springfield that questioned the science regarding global warming.  Mr. Boyer is a former senior official of the Springfield/Greene County Health Department and is currently an industry member on the Missouri Air Conservation Commission, under the Department of Natural Resources. 

Many of the news media has  supported the concept of global warming and the need for legislation such as “cap and trade.”  Mr. Boyer will provide an alternative opinion. 

This is an opportunity to learn more about global warming,  a chance to enjoy the company of fellow Lions, and a wonderful pot luck dinner.  We will also do an update on upcoming events such as the election of officers, our summer BBQ, and similar events.

Rain, Rain Go Away! Bring Us Sunshine Soon!

The weekend looks bleak but holds the promise of Spring!  Flowers have started their sprouting and many Crocus are already in full bloom.  The Jonquils are nodding their heads in approval and the flowering trees are budding.  There have been other sure signs of spring on the knob as employers are hanging out their signs looking for employees for the summer season.  Gardens are being tilled and people are starting their spring landscaping projects.  So Spring has come to the Ozarks.
