Pine-Strawberry Lost Beloved Artist



Jack, the chain saw artist who had become a fixture at the Strawberry market over the years, died Saturday, Nov 9. and our community will miss him.

As I thought about Jack I thought about the beauty of living in this tiny mountain town and calling this home. The benefits that living here afford me are the people like Jack, a gifted artist who shared his talent, who are just part of the rich texture and solid foundation of my home. We shared a smile, a good word and an occasional conversation about this and that.

Each and every day, our growing family changes, some join and occasionally some leave, but we are the better for having known them and shared our home with them.

PC Users Group

The Pine/Strawberry PC Users Group will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov 19, at the Senior Center at the Community Center in Pine. Bring a friend with you. They always start with a question and answer period, so bring your questions too.

The topic this month will be an introduction to spreadsheets using Excel. Instructors will look at building a basic spreadsheet including data formatting, adding formulas and functions, and basic printing and page setup. This will not be an in-depth session, but will introduce the concepts of spreadsheet operations.

As a reminder, there is a $1 donation per person to cover the cost of the meeting place and use of the projector.

Fiddlers Fiddling

Each month, a crowd gathers to hear the Old Time Fiddlers Jam Session. Be a part of this crowd at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov 20 in the Cultural Hall at the Community Center.

Fiddlers, guitar players, banjo pickers and toe tappers are invited to participate. No need to play most folks just come to listen. These rag-tag musicians generally pack the place. Come early for the best seats. Music and laughs are a guarantee.
