ARLEE — Turn back your clock: fall back - mountain time goes into effect on Sunday Nov. 5.

November, the month of falling snow, which means early shoveling - do that easily and watch your heart and health. Make sure you get your flu shots, new Covid boosters and check with your doctor. Then, maybe November will bring us above average temps, helping us prepare for a real winter. 

Here are some fun facts about November: Nov. 1 World Vegan Day, Nov. 2 Deviled Egg Day, Nov. 3 Sandwich Day, Nov. 4 National Candy Day, Nov. 5 National Donut Appreciation Day, Nov. 6 National Nacho Day, Nov. 7 Hug a Bear Day, Nov. 8 Cook Something Bold Day, Nov. 9 National Louisiana Day, Nov. 10 Forget-Me-Not-Day, Nov. 11 Veterans’ Day, Nov. 12 Happy Hour Day, Nov. 13 World Kindness Day, Nov. 14 National Pickle Day, Nov. 15 National Clean Out Your Fridge Day, Nov. 16 National Button Day, Nov. 17 Homemade Bread Day, Nov. 18 National Vichyssoise Day, Nov. 19 Play Monopoly Day, Nov. 20 Beautiful Day, Nov. 21 National Stuffing Day, Nov. 22 Go For A Ride Day, Nov. 23 Fibonacci Day, Nov. 24 Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day, Nov. 25 National Parfait Day, Nov. 26 Thanksgiving (Fourth Thursday), Nov. 27 Black Friday, Nov. 28 Small Business Saturday, Nov. 29 National Lemon Cream Pie Day, Nov. 30 Cyber Monday. WHEW! That should keep us busy.

As usual, all are invited to share a meal with us on Mondays and Wednesdays at noon, and in this month of November on the 4th and the 18th (pre-Thanksgiving Dinner) at 5 p.m. Please call first so that we can prepare enough food for all at 406-726-3213.

Costs are still the cheapest in town: $4 for lunch and $5 for dinner and that includes your entree, vegies, fruit, bread, dessert, and drink of your choice. 

The Arlee American Legion will be offering all veterans and friends to a spaghetti dinner on Saturday, Nov. 11, from 4-8 p.m. here at the Arlee Senior Center. A free-will offering is asked to support the Legion. 

Commodities will be distributed on Nov. 21 here at the Arlee Senior Center. If you meet the guidelines, please sign up, as this federal aid brings you food for your pantry. We have applications available for you. The Food Bank still gives commodities on Fridays at the old Hangin’ Art Building. 

Congratulate our Arlee Warriors and Scarlets on their fall season sports and then come enjoy the boys and the girls basketball teams at the Arlee High School Gym, Support our youth and then invite them to volunteer for seniors. Maybe they will shovel your steps or move some furniture.
