The Rippey community is preparing for the 43rd annual Bike Ride to Rippey (BRR) on Saturday, Feb. 1.

A sesquicentennial committee meeting is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 2, at 6:30 pm in the community room. The celebration is Aug. 1. Everyone is invited to be involved in this endeavor.

The Rippey Lions Club held its regular meeting on Jan. 16. DeAnn Thompson and Nancy Hanaman served the meal. Plans were shared for serving food for the BRR on Feb. 1.

The program was presented by Dan Acton who shared pictures and background on his work restoring old tractors. There was a brief discussion on preference for red or green tractors. He plans to drive one of his tractors in Rippey’s sesquicentennial parade on Aug. 1.

At the next potluck and meeting on Jan. 30, the interactive program will involve Lions members peeling potatoes and other preparations for the Feb. 1 event. ~ Nancy Hanaman reporting

NEWS FROM AZ – We (Jean Borgesen and family) tried twice to drive north to find snow over the weekend. No luck on Saturday, but another road trip on Sunday to a park in Flagstaff still had enough snow left to experience what was left. It wasn’t the fluffy, soft kind, but the kids got to play enough to get cold, wet and have hot chocolate. They enjoyed this new experience.

To this grandma, it seemed a long way to find snow, but the drive through the mountains was beautiful. They will have to be content with the pictures of home and the memories their parents and grandma share about snowstorms!
