Hi, neighbors.

How blessed we are here in Ninilchik with natural resources. Not only do we have the bounty of the sea and forest to feed us, we have their gifts to keep us warm. How thankful we are for the availability of wood and coal to heat our homes. Our gratitude for God's provisions swells on these cold days. We can sit by the fire and enjoy clam chowder.

Harvey and Muriel Mead purchased a home and moved to the area two months ago. They are ranchers from the big sky state of Montana who left their son with the ranch and fulfilled their dream of moving to Alaska.

Harvey is a large equipment operator and works on the slope. When I met Muriel, I told her that I wouldn't forget her name, for she bears the same name as my sister and mother. That makes her special to me in more ways than one. We welcome the Meads to the community.

An Iditarod fund-raiser for Tim Osmar will be held at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Inlet View Restaurant and Bar. It will be a potluck and auction to raise money for the high cost of the race. Donations for the auction will be accepted at the Inlet View Restaurant and Bar up until the event.

For more information, call 567-3337.

Don't forget the gardening seminar at Kenai Peninsula College on Friday and Saturday. Call 260-6187 for more information.

The Ninilchik Domestic Engineers is a community service club designed to enhance, educate and aid homemakers and at the same time serve the community. They meet weekly during the school year. If you are interested in joining or attending meetings, call Vivian Moe at 567-7373.

Ninilchik has a lot of industrious people. One of them is Debbie Hanson. Debbie not only has a full-time restaurant job, but also she has opened the Little Flea Market. It is located next door to the library in the same building as the Ninilchik Museum. By her having her business there, the museum is able to have more hours open to the public. Debbie has a wide variety of things for sale, both new and old. It is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays and from 3 to 6 p.m. on weekdays when she is open. Look for her open sign out front.

Another gal who doesn't let any grass grow under her feet is Annie Maxwell. She recently joined Nadine Russo at the Wild Iris, Ninilchik's full service beauty salon. The salon also has a tanning bed.
