Maybell tid bits

Maybell School children were hosts to their grandparents on Thursday. The children named their big event “Harvest day.” Each student invited a grandparent or a special adult to eat a big dinner with them. After the meal they were taught how to weave by Mary Carrera on the homemade weaving looms made by the Moffat County High School woodworking class. The highlight of the day was making cornhusk dolls and listening to Katie Buffam on her accordion.

Maybell seniors had a dinner of stroganoff meatballs Thursday. The 24 seniors gathered at the Community Center at noon to eat and visit. This was the only senior dinner in November so everyone may enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with loved ones. The next dinner will be Dec. 9 at noon at the Community Center. Bring 75 cents and a covered dish. The senior bus travels to Craig each Tuesday. If you need a ride give Dave a call.

The Maybell Rustler 4-Hers are encouraged to complete their 4-H enrollment and return them to Lance Poole by Saturday. If you need help completing them, call Lance or Jean Stetson. This does include leaders and cloverbuds.

All 4-Hers are reminded achievement night is Saturday. All the Maybell Rustlers need to be at the pavilion at 6:30 p.m. to help serve.

The Maybell 4-H Club reminds all Maybell locals they are still collecting aluminum cans. If you have any to donate, call Lance Poole. Thanks to everyone who donated to the club.
