Hi, neighbors.

Start looking for all those knives and scissors that you have put somewhere hoping to eventually getting them sharpened, because Dudley Abbott will sharpen scissors and knives Friday at the Sterling Senior Center.

Abundant Life has started a Beth Moore Bible study called "Breaking Free" that is about the book of Isaiah. The bible study group meets on Monday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon and is specifically for women in the community. For more information, call Patty Mullins at 260-8011.

Sterling Head Start has again been chosen to receive an AmeriCorps member. Brenna Talbot was hired for the position and began working at Head Start on Jan. 18. She will work full time in the community on health and wellness issues. Welcome Brenna and good luck with your new job. The Head Start staff says they look forward to working with her, however they will miss Sylvanna Szczesny who was last year's AmeriCorps member.

Head Start is planning its second fund-raiser "Spring into Fun." The evening will include an auction, prime rib dinner and a show. You won't want to miss enjoying a fun filled evening as well as supporting Head Start. It is open to the public.

Thanks to many people in Sterling, Head Start children are much warmer. Thanks to Joyce Williams for the donation of winter clothes and also to Vonnie Pierce, Jennifer Hubbard, Laura Bosela, Debbie Feigley, Brenna Talbot, Velvet Heffner and Cindy Boyer for the beautiful fleece mittens they knit for the children for Christmas. Your neighbors appreciate your efforts for the Sterling children.

What a great community we live in. Everyone pitches in when it's needed. Thanks to Travis Baker, Tony Fisher and Kim Minogue for the artwork for the Head Start classroom celebrations.

In honor of Valentine's Day Geoann Reichert has cooked up a fun breakfast for Saturday at the Sterling Senior Center. You can bring your sweetheart and enjoy the entertainment. Geoann hasn't said just what the entertainment is but you can bet it will be worth coming to breakfast and watching and listening. The menu includes pancakes, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, sausage and ham, quiche, coffee, tea, and juice. Cost is $10 per person. This is a fund-raiser to benefit the center's ongoing activities and programs.

The center has two new employees. Welcome to Lily Riley, new kitchen aide in charge of making salads and to Genie Christen, new housing coordinator for the Moose River Housing.Genie has been on the job for one month so if you want to inquire into what's what at the senior housing, call her at 262-6808.

Wednesday at 1 p.m. is the general membership meeting of the members of the senior center. Whether you are a paid member or not, you're invited to come, have lunch and stay for the meeting.

On Thursday, Tom Hodel of Soldotna Pharmacy will answer questions regarding medications at 1 p.m. at the center.

Happy birthday to my good friend Jacquie Dillon whose birthday was Feb. 1; Bill Lowe celebrated on Sunday and Fern Chamberlin on Monday; today we wish Terry Moxey a great birthday. I hope you all enjoyed a big birthday cake with lots of good wishes.

Until next week, bundle up when you go outside and hope it warms up soon.
