New floor, new paint, new linoleum.. so clean and bright we can almost start performing surgery in there! This time of year is all about projects and …. snow removal! As we continue to get the new and improved back-of-the-house laundry room up we happily keep shoveling the snow that is making our world such a winter wonderland. By the end of the week I’m sure area trails – including all the downtown and riverfront trails – will be prime and ready to go. Be sure to bop in for hot cocoa and cookies (Monster Cookies make great trail food!) if you are playing downtown. Or hitting other trails, or taking a road trip, or a flight.

We always recommend double checking with the particular venue/host organization to verify all events and happenings are still a ‘go.’ Things change fast…sometimes faster that we can update! Good places to find event information for Talkeetna – besides right here! – are the Talkeetna Chamber of Commerce Calendar of Events page and KTNA’s website under Today’s Announcements.
 
Take care!
