Meredith McLaughlin received notice that once again she is on the Dean’s list at USM.  She is maintaining a 4.0 and will graduate in May.  Family and friends are very proud of her and wish her continued success.

PES wish to get the word out that PTO is still selling Bomber T-Shirts.  Please contact Avis Miller or Donna Worden.  A fitness effort called Move and Improve has been underway since Jan. 9 and will continue until Feb. 15. This is a walking effort to encourage students and staff to stay in motion. Along with the fiber and woodworking clubs, students are enjoying Lego Robotics in the after school program.  This club is possible due to the donation of Dave and Sandy Perloff in years past.  Wesla and Weston Ranelli volunteer their time with this club on Mondays.  In May, as well, a cooking club will be offered on Monday’s by Lana Vining and Jane Andrews.  Looking ahead to spring also is a painting club mentored by Debby Mann and Sharon Norman.  The gym has been busy after school with basketball and cheering. PTO is pleased with the continued support of the staff and community with the sale of baskets and raffles.  Looking forward to March, students will be having a “Dr. Seuss Hullabaloo” at the school.  

On Saturday, a work crew of seven men was able to complete the pine paneling in the main room of the dining hall at the Sunrise Christian Church.  Debbie Kelley decorated the baptismal before the service, and the children gathered near as Brad Potter followed the Lord in Baptism. Most members and guests stayed for a pot luck luncheon coordinated by Bev Grohs.

Princeton residents and surrounding area people were saddened to hear of the recent passing of Bob Skedgell.   Bob and Betsy lived here and raised their family here.  In earlier years, Bob was the meat cutter at the Princeton IGA.  Being very active in the Congregational Church, Bob was also a youth leader to many teenagers.  He later was employed by Georgia Pacific in Woodland and Atlanta, GE.  More recently they made Big Lake as their summer home after retirement.  Bob will be greatly missed. 

On March 3rd at 6:30 p.m. Princeton Baptist Church is hosting a movie night, featuring “Fireproof” complete with popcorn to enjoy.  (Movie event was postponed due to the storm.)  Public is invited – come enjoy the movie, popcorn and socializing. All attending are encouraged to bring a dessert for intermission.  Also, on Feb. 20th at 9:00 a.m. and Feb. 21st at 6:30 p.m. a Ladies’ Bible Study featuring a DVD study called “Setting Captives Free” by Beth Moore will be presented .
