Well, the folks at NFNews aren’t on the North Fork very much these days, so we’ve slowed down our posts to NFNews. If you have some information that you would like to share with the North Fork community, send it along and we’ll post it. We’ll also post notices sent to us by the various agencies (e.g., Forest Service, Park, etc.). But otherwise, news is going to be slow.
The best way to get this sort of intermittent news is by signing up for the email (see the sidebar to sign up). That way, you’ll get notified of new posts and won’t have to keep coming back to the NFNews home page. We promise that we never share our reader’s emails with anyone.
Here’s a road report from Dawn Jacobson… If you haven’t been out much on Nf road this week you will find it a tad icy.. Tuesday morning, a Caterpillar equipment truck went over the edge a few miles north of Camas. Yesterday a girl went over less than a mile north of Camas. Today someone went off on Angie’s corner ( between a Moose Creek Road and Red Meadow Road) and sheriff and tow trucks have been busy.. Take it slow and easy …
We had a great time at the first dance class last weekend. We had more than 20 people in attendance!! This is a reminder that the next dance class will be on Sunday, December 8 at 6:00. Invite anyone else who might be interested. If your spouse/partner can’t come, come anyway! John and Zoe volunteered to start the fire early……thanks John and Zoe!

The traditional Thanksgiving dinner at the Hall will be hosted by Janet and Dick Leigh this year.
Thanksgiving dinner is a festive event with hundreds of neighbors and family members packed into the Hall. Food is always plentiful as befitting a Thanksgiving feast. Turkey and ham will be provided and everyone else will bring a large dish of their favorite food to share and the beverage of their choice.
The doors open at 3:00 and the feast will begin at 4:00. Everyone is asked to bring their own place settings (plates, utensils, napkins, and glasses) since dish washing is very difficult without running water at the Hall.
Price reduced to $100 for all. Selling these for Chris Heitz whose grandchildren have outgrown them. Would make a great Christmas surprise for grandkids. Will ship for $40 extra.
**Fisher-Price Imaginext Dinosaur Collection – 11 in all**
– 4 large motorized operated dinos complete with riders, head gear & saddles that move and make sounds.
– 5 medium-sized dinos complete with head gear, riders & saddles. Non-motorized movements.
– 2 Dino figures from Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman.
I’m sure most of you have heard of the terrible accident that happened to 6 year old Jordana Hubble from Olney. She was struck by car after getting off the school bus and is in critical condition with brain trauma and more injuries. There are multiple fundraisers happening. This family will need all the support it can get. Let’s join in from our community to show our love and support by filling the basket I will have at the hall on Thanksgiving with financial gifts and cards. If you are not attending Thanksgiving at the hall please feel free to bring donations to 14550 Tepee Lake Rd or let me know I will pick them up. Checks can also be sent to the Tepee Lake Road address and made payable to “Jordana Hubble fund. ”
I will personally make sure our love and support as a community will get to this family. Please pray for this child.
Firewise USA has approved the North Fork’s renewal application, so we’re in good standing for the 2020 calendar year. We had contributed time valued at almost $23,500, a little less than last year but still more than twice the required amount for a community our size.
Thanks to all of you who supported and contributed your time to our Firewise program this year.
