POLSON — Thought for Feb. 5:  It’s the Snow Full Moon. Well, “duh!” Winter is not over until March 20.  I don’t care what the groundhog told me. 

St. Valentine’s Day is the day to spoil your sweetheart. Buy a box of See’s Candy, now on sale at the Polson Senior Center. Buy your sweetheart some roses. Don’t tell anyone about the candy. And don’t buy that vacuum cleaner. I found that out the hard way.

We recently purchased Super-0ne grocery bags (the green ones). These bags are used for Commodity Food distributions. You can recycle green bags at the Polson Senior Center. 

Tax Filing assistance is available on Mondays or Thursdays. Call for an appointment to save wait time. Bring all your paperwork, including a copy of last year’s taxes.
