With less-than-ideal snow conditions, DLLT will still be hosting a group hike at Musquash Esker this Friday at 1 pm.  Cross-country skiing will be difficult, so bring your snowshoes or ice creepers along for a beautiful walk in the woods! Thanks Colin for your leadership in making outdoor events happens in Grand Lake Stream!!

Grand Lake Fire Department has started fund raising for an additional Fire Unit At https://www.gofundme .com grand-lake -Stream-firemen -equipment or Gary Santerre on Facebook.

Also the Fire Department has 3 fire personal taking “FFl” (firefighter 1 and 2) and “FF ll” starting in Calais on 01/24/17 ending 04/29/17.  It will be every Tuesday and Thursday and every other weekend, plus along with our monthly meeting and in house training. I would like to thank all volunteer fire department members for giving so much time to better the town .Chief Gary Santerre. (Thanks  Gary for your knowledge and leadership!)

The Grand Lake Snowmobile Club house cafe is continuing to be open on Saturdays from 11:00 am. to 2:00 p.m. Our snowmobile trails are groomed and the snow rabbit has been doing a wonderful job. We now have a Club web-site, www.grandlakesnowmobileclub.com. Use this website for updates. Remember when traveling to Grand Lake Stream you can get gasoline and food at the Pine Tree Store.

How about sending in or call in a story about your experience in snowmobiling or fishing this season? Your friends love to hear stories about your adventures in the Grand Lake Area.

Coyote Update! Smith’s General Store has tagged 13 coyotes at this time with 7 Males and 6 females. Whitney’s has tagged 3 at this time with 1 male and 2 female. Tim Jipson has harvested the largest male at 48.83 pounds and Earl Smith the largest female at 35.26 pounds. There currently is a purse of $1700 to be distributed. Largest male and female pays $200 each and a random drawing at another $200. Current value of each coyote is $68.75. This contest does allow more deer to survive the winter and the spring birthing process.

A couple of “foods” for thought:  Speaking of knee replacements – babies are born without kneecaps.  They don’t appear until the children reach between 2-6 years of age.  And did you know that elastics last longer if you refrigerate them?  Send us your unique tidbits.
