Here it is…. the beginning of a string of holidays that will keep us all cooking, baking, moving and warm, just in time for the colder temperatures and the SNOW! Yes, winter has arrived!
 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Today marks the beginning of the bee-hive hum of prepping for our two big meals on Thursday. We have just a few seats at the Noon and the 5pm seating. We will open the bakery from 7am – 10am for our usual Donut Thursday plus breakfast burritos, quiche and other bakery item. After 10am we’ll have to prepare for our big meals.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Included below is a listing generally only on the print version of these calendar, but since we have holiday special hours in the community I felt it was a good idea to post, along with the usual listing.

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!
