Mayer News for Feb. 7

Zion School News

Zion Lutheran School of Mayer will be hosting a Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction on Sunday, Feb. 24. Serving time will be from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the school gym on Blue Jay Avenue. Dinner includes spaghetti, meat or no-meat sauce, bread sticks and salad. The dinner is a free will donation. The profits from this event will go to the seventh and eighth graders to take and educational trip to Washington D.C.

A silent auction will also be held at this time. If you would like to donate something for the silent auction, please let Jason Wisch know or bring your item to the school.

Another way of showing your support to the students planning on making the trip to Washington D.C. is by ordering water softener salt. Contact the school office to place your order. The salt will be delivered to your home and if you would like, it will be put into your softener. This is a year-long project.

Snow removal rules

Although we haven’t had very much snow to contend with so far this winter, just so we don’t forget, there are rules we all must follow during the winter months. Homeowners are responsible for keeping sidewalks and trails in front of their homes clear of snow. You are also asked to keep fire hydrants shoveled out if the hydrant is in your yard. In case of deep drifts around your home, it is wise to check to make certain the clean air and gas exhaust pipes are not covered with snow.

There is to be no parking on city streets during the months of November through the first day of April following s snowfall of one inch or more until all the streets are cleared of snow. Then you may park on the streets. If everyone does their share, we can all make our city a better place.

Dates of Importance

Registration for the upcoming Minnesota Firearms Safety Hunter Education program will take place at the Mayer Community Center on Thursday, Feb. 21, at 7 p.m. If you have questions, please call Beth Schrupp at 952-442-4443 (days).
