Forestville News & Events, September 2018 I got a wonderful surprise the other day. Something I get to check off my “Wouldn’t It Be Cool” list. You know, that list that isn’t quite Bucket-List caliber such as seeing the Northern Lights (not yet) or jumping out of an airplane (done). No, this cool surprise was local and tied to Forestville History. I got to actually see one of those rare “Forestville Chairs” made by the Faudre Chair Factory, which put Forestville on the map in the late 1800s.

It’s a tale of two Sean’s. One a longtime resident, all around nice guy and frequent customer at Sunshine Roasters coffee shop downtown.

Forestville News & Events, March 2018

Have you done one of those DNA tests yet? Any surprises? I was sort of hoping I’d have something interesting show up in mine. But science tells me I’m still mostly Irish. The traditions from my childhood have formed me. The songs my mother sang doing the dishes. The lullabies to put us to sleep. The food. The folk dances. The proud green ribbon in my hair on St. Patrick’s Day. Generation after generation, firmly rooted traditions from County Cork Ireland were a huge part of my life. I always felt I had the “Luck of the Irish.” Maybe it’s just the gift of gab!

Forestville News & Events, February 2018

As we celebrate, or possibly lament, Valentine’s month, I like to think about the concept of love a bit broader than who my date might be that night. So, it occurred to me to write why I love Forestville. What about you?

Perhaps you fell in love with our town simply by driving through. You thought, “Oh look, it’s tiny, it’s cute, different.” A sweet setting with two parks for the public. Your kids could get a small-town flavor growing up in this beautiful spot.

Forestville News & Events, November 2017

When I think of Thanksgiving this year, I know I’m not waiting until the end of the month to count my blessings. You may be feeling that same way, especially since Forestville escaped the monster firestorm that devoured neighborhoods to our east.

Forestville News & Events, September 2017

The call came at 3 am. A neighbor thought we might want to know. The house directly above us was on fire. We stumbled out the back to witness a roaring blaze 30’ up the hill. My mind froze. What to rescue…photos, laptop, grandma’s quilt? Embers rained down. My attempt to wet our roof with a garden hose felt pathetic.
