POLSON — If you forgot to set your clocks ahead one hour you can go ahead and set them now, or wait six months and then it will be standard time again. If you need more things to gripe about you can always pick time changes in the USA. One thing we can’t change is the first day of each season. This first day of pring is sometimes on March 20. Spring 2023 will end on June 21, mostly. Sometimes it’s June 22. Blame it on the sun and the tilt of the earth. You could live in Australia where it is called the first day of fall. Yes, you can snow ski in July because its winter there. Sometimes here too. Yes, I have witnessed snow in Polson on July 4.

We have been approached by a Ping Pong enthusiast who would like to loan us a table for use at the center. If you have an interest in ping pong. please sign up at the Polson Senior Center.
