Fawnskin Heads Toward Spring

mountain lake resort news

My trip to Big Bear was a quick turn around. In Fawnskin, things were bustling at the Post Office. Postmaster Mike was inquisitive and helpful–which is why we love him. The place was packed since everyone was picking up their mail and I got my tub and headed to the house for a onsite inspection.

Too bad that I was on a tight schedule because I noticed that Ike’s Creekside was undergoing some renovation. Let’s hope the health department is a bit cooperative or that the property owner will make the improvements that were the catalyst for Amangela’s relocation to the village. Owners Kath Moselle and Sue Keegan are known for Ike’s Rockin’ Dogs.

BTW Amanda had her baby last month–a whopping 9 pound little girl. I did stop by to see if I could get the total scoop and maybe get a snap from Angela but their place was packed.

As always, as springtime approaches, the snow melts quickly and so most of the exposed areas actually had little to no snow while the shaded areas still supported a good amount of the white stuff.

Thanks to my neighbor’s for watching out for the house. One turned on the heat as I wanted to avoid any problems with the pipes but that really isn’t an issue when the house is warm and usually requires temperature into the teens or single digits over an extended period of time so I dropped by to actually turn the heat off as the weather heads into the 60s.

The day was toasty and it was perfect for the short commercial clip we filmed with one of my former dog stars, little Cheyenne. She belongs to Cheryl over at The Fish Locker & Bear Valley Pet & Animal Supply. Even though I have not run there through the paces in about two years, she remembered everything and even learned to “wipe your face” for the shoot–we got the shot and trained the behavior in 20 minutes.

Now there is a lot of news to share so I better get on with it.

The NSIA potluck will feature a traditional corned beef boiled dinner with all of the trimmings. Volunteers have committed to make corned beef and cabbage with the fixings.  However, still needed are salads and desserts for Monday March 14, 2011.

The potluck takes place at the Old Miller School House on 1178 Chickasaw Lane at 5:30pm and the scheduled speaker is Dayan Anderson. Anderson is representing the Old Miner’s organization and is working, along with Fawnskin organizations, to bring back the Doo Dah Parade.

The tentative date for the 2011 Doo Dah Parade is Saturday, July 30, 2011. NSIA is seeking volunteers to do the telephone solicitation of participants and to help on the day of the parade and if you can help, please leave your name and contact number with Andi Ruppert at (909) 866-5028.

As many of you know, the road to recovery has been a long process to get to where I am now. One of the people I’ve met on that journey was Dr. Julie Monroe (who runs the not-for-profit Lake Arrowhead Family Practice Clinic located in the Medical Office Building next to Mountains Community Hospital). She is one of the few to offer low-cost medical services to persons without health care insurance.

As a result, her practice has grown and her current location cannot handle the large patient load and so the clinic needs to move to larger quarters. Since the move is expensive and requires some new office and medical equipment (new examination table, commercial copier, a casting table for cast-making supplies, and an autoclave for sterilizing medical instruments) there will be a tribute fundraiser to assist Dr. Monroe expand the clinic.

Okay, that is it for now.
