Forestville News & Events, November 2018

Year-round I’m filled with gratitude for living in such a beautiful place. I feel lucky, don’t you? Plus, after 33 years working for hospice I realize just being alive and well is a big deal. Getting to live in Forestville is icing on the cake. I’m sad though that our national holiday for gratitude seems more about eating a lot and getting good deals on stuff we, or our friends and relatives, may or may not need.

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.

Forestville News & Events, July 2018, Summer's Here

Special July 4th Farmers Market
I’ve got a great idea for you. Kick off summertime in Forestville by coming to the 4th of July Farmers Market (Wednesday). Think pig roast, beer and wine, yummy food and bands! Joy Ride plays from 12-3, then Dog Gone Honey’s from 3-7PM. Bring enough money to buy the usual fresh produce, gourmet olive oils, breads, crafts and treats.

Where Do Gifts Come From?

I have a great story of a gift.  Years ago the Chamber requested money from the Community Fund to pick up trash in downtown Forestville.  The grant paid JD Kawai, famous about town for his bikes and friendly banter, to take on this task. He did a great job of making the town spiffy, no more piles of cigarette butts or bits of flotsam here and there.  We looked like someone cared.

Forestville News & Events, October 2017

I got lost in Forestville the other day. I overshot my intended turn. Ended up in an unfamiliar neighborhood. As I drove through I was struck at how different this section of Forestville was from mine.

Some of us live in sweet neighborhoods with sunny gardens. Some of us are on ridgetops overlooking a vineyard, the river, or both. Some of us cling to hillsides hoping our trees hold the soil during winter rains. We all call Forestville home.

It’s interesting to explore our town’s neighborhoods. The more we understand each other, the better community we create.
