Turn north onto CR 30-1/2 and continue to Mule Deer Drive where you will turn left. Turn right onto Hawk Drive and then left on Coyote. Watch for a bright green kid figure with an orange flag and a painted wood coffee sign on the left side of highway at drive entrance. All Shell Valley area women are encouraged to join this great group for an enjoyable morning.
The Wild Roses Garden Club gathered in the Fellowship Hall of the Shell Community Church on Thursday, March 21, to make beautiful handmade spring gift cards under the guidance of Monette Wilcox. Each attendee left with two cards and a small package of Bleeding Heart flower seeds to give to family or friends.
The Wild Roses Garden Club will not meet in April but will resume in May.
What a great Saint Patrick’s Day dinner the Shell Hall board hosted on Saturday, March 16. The hall was filled, the corned beef and cabbage was delicious and Angela Botzer topped the evening off with traditional Irish tunes played on her fiddle. Our community is blessed with so many talented people.
Just a reminder about the two special Easter services this Sunday, March 31.
The Cowboy Church will be holding an outdoor Easter Sunday service at 8 a.m. on March 31, at the turnoff to Red Gulch Road between Greybull and Shell. Breakfast will be served after the service.
The Shell Community Church will hold its Easter Sunday service at 8:30 a.m. Come join the joyful celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord!
And don’t forget the Easter breakfast at the Shell Community Hall from 9 to 11 a.m. The Hall board will be serving biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, sausage, coffee, tea and orange juice. Adults are $12, kids $6. The annual children’s Easter egg hunt will follow the breakfast.
Hallelujah, the Lord is risen. He is risen indeed. Hallelujah. May you all have a wonderful Easter!
