Exciting times in La Sal

Since the Es have taken over proprietorship of the La Sal Store, they have made great improvements inside.  It’s really a cute shop with lots of items including locally produced art items. For a preview there are photos posted on La Sal Barter and Trade’s Facebook page as well as Instagram.  
You won’t believe all they have to offer.  The Store also has new extended hours. Monday through Friday they are open from eight to eight.  Saturday and Sunday hours are nine to eight.  Guess they want to sleep in on the weekend. 
For some time there was a rumor that they were also going to bring in a food truck.  Well, they’ve done just that.  Several weeks ago they gave a free sample of their offerings.  
Word quickly spread throughout the village and folks came out to test the fare which was burgers and dogs.  The demand ended being more than anticipated and they were soon out of buns.  
This is somewhat reminiscent of the former proprietors, Ana and Hal Adams gratitude and celebration of the Fourth of July last summer.  That too offered burgers and dogs at no cost.  
The food truck will be in business a couple of days a week though right now I’m not sure when those days are.  Guess a little detective work is needed. 
Also, we understand that there is – finally – a new chef at La Sal Elementary School.  Not only is he providing daily meals for our kiddos, but one day a week the students actually get to choose from a menu and order what they desire.  What fun. 
Coming up this Saturday at the Community Center is a Rummage and Bake Sale. Although it looks to me to be more of a craft fair than rummage sale.  Guess we will have to go and check out what goodies we might find.  
There will be many handmade items and crafts and other interesting things.  Sounds like a fun time to meet and greet friends after a long winter.  I suspect there will be garden starts and seeds available as well.  
We have some folks here who raise interesting items in their gardens along with more traditional vegetables and flowers.  The event starts at ten a.m. and goes to four p.m.  There is no charge for tables.  
This event is to benefit the local La Sal Senior Center.  A contribution of your choosing is welcome for those who have a table.  For information, contact Debi Castor at 435-686-2557. 
On hand at Saturday’s sale will be the Es’ food truck from eleven in the morning until three in the afternoon.  There will be corn dogs and fries available.  Again, you determine what price you want to pay for them.  No running out of buns this time.        
Well, we’ve gotten a few days here and there of Spring.  And wind which is typical of our springs.  On the good days it’s nice to get out and do a little yard work.  Feels so good after a long winter.  
The Mountain is still covered in snow though the line is creeping upward day by day.  I’m thinking it’s going to be July before much camping or fishing will take place up there.  
We’ll have to find activities down in the valley.  Four wheeling in the red sandstone areas anyone?
