Here’s a head’s up concerning the Community Hall: It will basically be a construction zone this week while all the flooring (except the Auditorium) is replaced with the same vinyl laminate that was recently installed in the Café. At the same time, the bathrooms will be remodeled with improved handicapped access. The goal is to have the project finished in time for next Tuesday’s Nutrition Lunch.
This major maintenance expense has been budgeted from Town dues. You know, the $35 a month that residents pay for such necessities as streetlights and weekly garbage pickup. But since volunteers contribute so much to the upkeep of the Town, that $35 goes a very long way. (All the volunteers who have done the prep work for this job saved the Town a bundle!)
This coming Monday will be the observation of Memorial Day, with the noticeable (though often forgotten) absence of mail delivery. Our Town’s veterans will be active visiting the Vader cemeteries and handing out traditional VFW poppies.
First the Craft Fair weekend and now all the items moved to the Auditorium during the flooring project – what are the line dancers to do? Improvise, of course. They’re not letting anything cramp their style as they continue rehearsing on Thursday & Saturdays at 4 p.m. until the June 21 Sock Hop. The same loyalty to routine can be found in the group that gathers for the “Chair Yoga” exercises on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings at 9 a.m.
I haven’t heard where the Red Hat ladies will go this week on their Outing but I’m sure it will be “No work, all play!” Call Carole at (360) 295-8307 for details – they usually leave from the Café about 11 or 11:30 a.m.
This weekend has Open Mic @ the Café on Saturday at 7 p.m. and an Ice Cream Social with Card Bingo on Sunday at 6 p.m. in Community Hall. Card Bingo is a great way to share your loose change (maximum loss is $2.60) with friends and neighbors.
Friday’s Café meal will be a Brown-Sugar Meatloaf dinner (call Linda at (360) 295-0875 for reservation) and Nutrition Lunch on the 27th will be Cheeseburgers, Potato Salad and Strawberry Cheesecake (call Jan at (360) 295-0597).
