Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing, stay within the designated riding areas and always snowmobile with another person, never ride alone. The Huntley Penguins Snowmobile Club is always looking for new members to join their club. The membership fee is only $25.00 per family per year. The only thing we require is proof of liability insurance. The Penguins meet the first and third Tuesday of the month at the American Legion Hall in Huntley at 8:00pm. Come and learn all you can about being a responsible snowmobiler, keep safety as your top priority, but most importantly, always use common sense and keep a clear head. Trail boss.

Christmas Bells Aid Children at First Church One of the lovely Christmas traditions of First Congregational Church of Hundey centers around their Christmas Bells. Many years ago there were many special needs of children of the church that couldn't be met without some special offerings. It was decided to have a special offering each Christmas for the children. From this came the idea behind the bells. Instead of just another special offering, it was decided to try and make this a memorable offering. For each gift to the Christmas Bell Fund, bells are sent out for the contributors to put dieir names on the bells. Then the bells are used to decorate the Christmas trees in the sanctuary. Anyone interested in participating who has not received bells may contact the church at 669-3691. TLC Book Fair This Week Hundey Trinity Lutheran Church TLC Preschool Scholastic Book Fair will run through Thursday, Dec. 12, 9am-3pm.
