Meeker Locals

We hope everyone enjoyed a fun, festive and safe New Year’s holiday, whether you attended the dance to support Range Call or sat at home and watched the ball drop on TV.
Now that the holidays are “mostly” over, we can sit back and relax a bit on our newly expanded derrieres, or get up and get to the rec center to work off that holiday pudge.
Send in your holiday news, by the way. Who came to visit and who went somewhere else? Who got engaged, or married? All kinds of exciting things happen during the “most wonderful time of the year,” so share some of your happenings.
And if the January blues are threatening to creep in, here are some other things to celebrate this month: January is national bath safety month, blood donor month, braille literacy month, hobby month, hot tea month, oatmeal month and soup month.
Happy belated birthday to San Riebold-Jonsson on Jan. 1 and to Kristiana Nold on Jan. 4. Happy birthday to Darcy Roach, Jan. 5; Julie Jansen, Jan. 6; Richard Bland, Marti Walsh, Autumn Lawson, Dick Merriam and Stephanie Oldland, Jan. 7; Morgan Neilson and Pam Cook, Jan. 8; Marcus Kindall and Beth Hollowed, Jan. 9; Mac McFarland, Jan. 10.
Happy anniversary to Dave and Betsy Allen, Jan. 8; Vic and Chiyoko Caldwell, Jan. 9. And a belated anniversary greeting to Brit and Cathy Smith, who celebrated Jan. 2.
