SPY's Newsletter 11/3/22

SPY’s Community Newsletter #224 (11/3/22) Let’s Decorate The Village Again! The Sunfield Fire Department Auxiliary will once again be “decorating the village” for Christmas by wrapping the utility poles on Main Street with garland and lights. They will again be offering the opportunity for the community to purchase custom-made decorations in memory, or honor of a loved one, or group, for just $10. The name of the person you’re honoring will be displayed on the garland. If you have previously had an ornament displayed, the cost is $5. Please send your check or money order made out to “Sunfield Fire Auxiliary” to PO Box 223, Sunfield MI 48890, by November 15th. Please include the name of the person / group you’d like displayed and a way to contact you. Poles will be decorated on Saturday, November 26th and will remain until after the New Year. Got Your Tickets Yet? Pete Weller is the chairman of the SPY’s annual Sportsman’s Night Event (aka “The Wild Game Dinner”). Pete says, this year there will be a special added feature leading up to this mega-event---“The Blackstone Griddles Raffle”. We will be raffling off 2 thirty-six inch Blackstone Griddles with air fryer bundles These Blackstones have a value of well over $1,000 each. In addition, the raffle will include an original twenty-eight inch Blackstone griddle with cutting board, valued at over $300. A limited number of tickets will be sold with the drawing to be held on February 4, 2023. If all of the tickets are sold, there will be an additional twenty separate drawings for $50 each. These Blackstone Griddles are a real Top-Notch outfit! They by far surpass your regular limited grilling experience! They are excellent! All of the proceeds from the Blackstone Griddle Raffle with go toward the support of the various youth and community programs the SPY’s underwrite.

Volunteers are needed to deliver the baskets to the designated families in the Sunfield area.

Parting Comments • Deep Thought of the Week: Life is 10% of what happens to you, and 90% of how you react to it. • Notable Quote: “I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.”---Abraham Lincoln • That’s Puny Department: Studies show cows produce more milk when the farmer talks to them. It's a case of in one ear and out the udder. • Did You Know Section: In this Newsletter we will explore the origin of the use of the term “scot-free”. (And, it has nothing to do with people from Scotland). In olden times, a scot was the amount that one owed for entertainment, usually the amount of one’s share in that entertainment, as for the drinks in a tavern. Scot-free thus described one whose debt was assumed by others or whose drink was “on the house”. From that beginning, the meaning of scot-free came to be freedom from other kinds of payment, as taxes, or tolls, and from that it became extended to freedom from punishment. Notices 1. If there is any organization or business out there that has something they would like to advertise or promote, please feel free to submit it to this Newsletter and we will help publicize it. There is no charge. We are glad to provide this means as a public service to help keep the community informed. 2.
