Happy Thanksgiving! I know that this year, I am thankful for so many people in my community who make Blue Lake the best place to live!
I could never imagine to remember all the important people to thank – there are so many more than I’m about to list – but I would like to show my gratitude and thanks to the Blue Lake Volunteer Fire Department for keeping our community safe from fires and assisting in other areas as well; to Blue Lake’s City Manager Amanda Mager for having such amazing forward thinking and community spirit; to the Blue Lake City Council, Adelene Jones (mayor), Bobbi Ricca (mayor pro-tem), Summer Daugherty, Chris Curran, and Elaine Hogan – you are amazing elected officials, and I am so thankful for your leadership; to the different civic and volunteer clubs in our community – the Mad River Grange, Wha-Nika Women’s Club, Lola’s, Old Crows, etc. (I may have missed one or two) – without you all, our city would be sorely lacking in volunteerism and community spirit; to the staff at Blue Lake, especially Public Works, who makes sure our water and wastewater is always working properly and keep our streets maintained; and finally to all those who contribute to our great community, but I was unable to mention. Thank you for making Blue Lake amazing!
Blue Lake Day Camp
Do you have children ages 5-13? Did you forget that the Blue Lake Parks and Recreation has an amazing kids camp during all school breaks? The Thanksgiving camp only ran for three days, Monday-Wednesday, November 19-21, but was amazing. Participants enjoyed a variety of games, crafts, and of course skating! If this is something you think your child or children would enjoy, there is another break camp coming up during the winter break holidays. Contact Parks and Recreation at (707) 668-5932 for more information.

Don’t forget that City Hall will be closed on Nov. 22 and Nov. 23, and we hope that everyone has an enjoyable holiday. The next Blue Lake City Council meeting will also take place on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 7 p.m.

Student of the Month
The Wha-Nika Women’s Club Student of the Month is second grader Allie Brittain. Allie will be seven in December. She is bright and kind, has a wonderful sense of humor and always a positive attitude. Allie has many friends throughout school, and when asked what she would like others to know about her, she said that she enjoys art, ballet and riding horses. She has a horse named Dusty and a pony named D’jango. One day she would like to go to Disney World with her family. Congratulations Allie on being the November student of the Month!
