Let It Snow !

COFFEE HOUSE BUZZ:

It is snowing in Fish Creek! Snowbirds have flown South, and some of the Main Street merchants have too!  Our deer hunters have another gun season in their rear view mirrors, and will hold out for a trophy from what's remaining of the archery season. The Homestead is home to several annual family Christmas gatherings which are coming up in the next few weeks.  How lovely it is to reconnect with our guests and see how their families have GROWN over the years!




FISH CREEK CHATTER:



Maybe there will be a blanket of white for next weekend's official Tree lighting and Caroling at the Noble House Square in Fish Creek.  The town is aglow with holiday lights.  End of the year sales are posted in the store windows.  Peninsula State Park is awaiting the cross country ski enthusiasts, winter campers, snowshoe hikers and of course, those who brave the ice fishing.
