Potluck and Bunko Night at Colvill Town Hall on January 27th

The Colvill Community Club Committee is hosting a community potluck and bunko event at the Colvill Town Hall on the evening of January 27th. The potluck dinner starts at 5 p.m., followed by Bunko games from 6-8 p.m. The Town Hall is at 2965 East Highway 61, northeast of Grand Marais.

Bunko is a social dice game that is fun for all ages. It can played with any number of players. It originates in 19th-century England. After the Civil War, the game evolved into a popular parlor game. Also known as Bunco, the game has soared in popularity at social events over the last few decades. Groups of four try to score points while taking turns rolling three dice.

The Club’s invitation says, “The whole family is invited, friends and anyone you want to invite.”   Bring some food to share and have a fun night with the neighbors. There will be prizes for the Bunko games.

Information can be found on the Colvill Community Club Facebook page.

Typically these “about me” pages include a list of academic achievements (I have none) and positions held (I have had many, but who really cares about those?) So, in the words of the late Admiral James Stockwell, “Who am I? Why am I here?” I’m well into my seventh decade on this blue planet we call home. I’m a pretty successful husband, father, and grandfather, at least in my humble opinion. My progeny may disagree. We have four children and five grandchildren. I spent most of my professional life in the freight business. At the tender age of 40, early retirement beckoned and we moved to Grand Marais. A year after we got here, we bought and operated the Cook County News Herald, a weekly newspaper in Grand Marais. A sharp learning curve for a dumb freight broker to become a newspaper editor and publisher. By 1999 the News Herald was an acquisition target for a rapidly consolidating media market. We sold our businesses and “retired” again, buying a winter retreat in Nevada. In the fall of 2016, we returned to Grand Marais and bought a house from old friends of ours on the ridge overlooking Lake Superior. They were able to move closer to family and their Mexico winter home. And we came home to what we say is our last house. I’m a strong believer in the value of local newspapers--both online and those you can wrap a fish in. I write a weekly column and a couple of feature stories for the Northshore Journal. I’m most interested in writing about the everyday lives of local people and reporting on issues of importance to them.
