On a personal note
It is hard to believe it is spring when we look out the windows and once again there is a snow pile in the yard. Despite the snow on the ground, the sun is still warm and it is nice to see it hanging around longer in the evening. No worries -- warmer weather and greener surroundings are just around the corner.
One last reminder
Please remember the basket bingo being held on Sunday, April 7, at the Odd Fellows Hall here in town. This will help raise monies to send kids to Camp NEOFA in Montville. Doors open at 11 a.m., with lunch available. Bingo starts at 1 p.m. Come out for a fun afternoon and help some local youth at the same time!
