Forbes was the man about the Town of Wayland. He was tall and lean, making a striking figure and was well known. After serving in the Air Force during World War II Forbes returned to Wayland in 1945 and went into the hardware business with his father “Rogers & Tenbrook” and operated it for 40 years. He was an active resident of Wayland and was involved in the fire department serving at fire chief. He was custodian of the Village Cemetery.


He was excited when plans were being made to start a Wayland Historical Society and worked on the building committee to collect funds for the building fund. He pitched in to help paint and saw to it the new shrubs got watered at the museum. He and Evelyn were big financial supporters of the Museum. Forbes was the person the gals would ask to identify photos of persons and places of Wayland’s past. Since he had been in a nursing home the last few years, he was already missed around Wayland.


Forbes greatest enjoyment was the outdoors deer and rabbit hunting and after his retirement would spend a lot of time at his hunting cabin. He also enjoyed fishing.


Sympathy also to the family of Mark Crossett, 55, of Loon Lake who died Feb. 15 after an extended illness.


Last reminder of upcoming events: Boup’s chili contest at Springwater Legion next Saturday, March 5.

The latest exhibit at the Wayland Museum is Victrola’s beginning with a 1898 “Amberola” which is a table model hand cranked player using tube cylinders (before records) then the floor model hand turned player Victrola using records on up through the years showing the changes and improvements in record players. Despite the fact that the museum is closed on Sundays during the winter, it would be opened by rearrangement with any of the trustees. Keep in mind the museum’s next fundraiser Penny Social coming up in April. As a member you are asked to make a donation of an item or a monetary gift. The staff is at the museum on Monday mornings 10 a.m. to noon.


Sunday’s winner of the 50-week club at the Perkinsville Fire Hall was Paul Mark.


Wow! What a shock last Saturday when the snow started falling after the high winds. The weather man didn’t alert us that it was going to be that much snow. Those of you who attend Mass at Sacred Heart Sunday mornings at 9:30 should be aware that it is Todd Conrad who out of the goodness of his heart, comes up early and shovels the walks and cleans off the church steps. Give him a thank you when you see him.


Accidents can occur any time of year but more occur in the Winter. From winter sports accidents to falls.


Fortunately I haven’t had a broken bone. I recall my dad telling he broke his leg sled riding, our son Dave broke his leg down hill skiing several years ago. There have been several snowmobile accidents recently in the newspapers. Falls on the ice are common. Hazardous snowy conditions cause car accidents. Hopefully we have only a few more weeks before Spring arrives. The seed packets are out in the stores that’s a sure sign of spring.


Ladies I’m sorry I didn’t get this notice in last week, but mark your calendars if you would like to join the gals who have decided to get together for lunch at the Perk fire hall on the last Tuesday of the month.


Just bring a dish to pass and table service at 11:30 a.m. It’s just nice to get together with other gals chat about events even bring your needlework if you like, perhaps a game will be played. Mark your calendars.


Happy Birthday to Bob Didas, March 4.
