The saying “April showers bring May flowers” is in evidence in bushes, fruit trees and the beautiful Easter Cross that was full of fresh flowers. It was certainly more than showers on the first day of our rummage sale, but after working together for many days nothing could dampen our spirits and we were able to give the same level of smiles and friendliness that our satisfied customers have come to expect. There was more than usual left unsold but it all went to Disabled American Veterans and so our giving continues. Well done everyone!

The Memorial Reception Committee has been kept very busy with several memorials over the last few months and a recent wedding. They put in many hours of thoughtful, dedicated work to make these events as meaningful as possible for families. Thank you Lorna and Lenna.

Is everyone ready for our Annual Salad Luncheon on May 12? The theme is Nifty Fifty and even more fun if you dress the part, capri pants, poodle skirts, saddle shoes or rolled up blue jeans will put you in the mood.
