Community Conversation set for July 17

What could improve the economic health of the Timber Lake community?

What could make this a better place to live?

Who could do something about either of those — and how?

That gives an idea of the focus of a community meeting to be held Monday, July 17, sponsored by Timber Lake & Area Development and the Timber Lake Topic. Everyone is welcome to attend the “Community Conversation” to begin at 7 p.m. at Big Dad’s and to bring ideas, suggestions and questions.

Football field project moves first two games out of town

As renovations to the Timber Lake School’s football field take place this summer, some changes have been made to the upcoming football season schedule. Hedging against the progress of new grass, Supt. Dan Martin announced recently that the school’s first two scheduled home games will be played away instead.

 

This will leave the Panthers with two home games for the 2017 season, but Martin said Timber Lake will host six home games in 2018. The Panthers will open the season at Faith on Thursday, August 17. In addition to being moved from Timber Lake to Faith, the contest was also moved to the 17th from the 18th. Both schools agreed to play on a Thursday due to 4-H rodeo finals being held that weekend starting on the 18th.
