Friday will be Katie Buffam’s last day as our librarian, so Maybell is throwing her a retirement party Sunday at the Maybell Restaurant. Everyone is welcome to come and let Katie know how much we all have appreciated her hard work for so many years.

Sept. 18 will be a fun day for Maybell. The annual “Maybell Appreciation Days” will be in the park. A potluck will begin at 6 p.m. followed by the second annual riding lawnmower races. Then the town will be dancing in the park that night. Anyone interested in racing their mower should contact Dianne Gould. This year there is a contest for best decorated lawnmower, so start decorating your mowers.

Three Maybell locals, Curtis Gould, Bill Sloan and Randy Sloan are lucky to be alive after a helicopter caught fire and crashed right above them on Monday in Silverton, Colo. The three men were doing gold mine closures for Sloan Contracting when the helicopter dropping off supplies to them caught fire and crashed. Luckily nobody was hurt, but the three sure have stories to tell for generations.

Maybell’s catch of the week goes to Paul Twite. After a long struggle, Paul reeled in a 13-pound, 29-inch catfish. Paul caught the big fish by Virgil Heeds on the Yampa River. Paul is looking forward to cooking the fish at his hunting camp this year.

Maybell is proud of two local boys. Clint Jantz and Brian Poole found some large bills laying on the ground. The two boys made the right decision and turned the money in and are waiting patiently to see if the money will be claimed. Good going guys.

Maybell Rustlers 4-H Club met Friday and discussed fund-raisers, starting with the hide collection during hunting season. Anyone in the area that has any deer or elk hides they would like to donate to the 4-H Club, give Jean Stetson or Lance Poole a call and they will pick them up.
Election of officers will be held at the next meeting, so if you are interested in becoming an officer of the Maybell Rustlers you need to be prepared to speak at the meeting as to why you want that position. Any 4-Hers that were in livestock need to have their livestock record books turned in to the Moffat County Extension Office.Election of officers will be held at the next meeting, so if you are interested in becoming an officer of the Maybell Rustlers you need to be prepared to speak at the meeting as to why you want that position.
