This is a busy time for anyone getting ready for the spring Garage Sales that are coming up April 24 & 25. With all the new folks in town, many are bound to have brought too much or not enough to furnish their new homes.

For residents who aren't having their own sales, the Women's Club will gladly accept donations for their big sale.
Since the Women's Club will be readying Pioneer Hall for the Sale, the ladies will hold their monthly meeting on Wednesday the 8th at Gee Cee's Truck Stop (Exit 57) at noon. All ladies are welcome to join in an afternoon of fun, food and fellowship.

What beautiful weather we have had this past week and it looks like it will be continuing this week as well...Thank Goodness because we have a friend in town from Brazil. He comes a couple of times a year and each time we go outside and shoot photos of cows, yes I wrote cows. He lives in Sao Paolo, a city of almost 20 million--and we think New York is big. Sao Paolo is cement for as far as the eye can see. So, now you understand when our friend Ron is here, why he likes to take photos of cows and Mother Nature. I have always enjoyed seeing life through the eyes of others and I had forgotten how beautiful this area is until Ron came and showed me again...Thank you Ron!
