Had enough snow? I know I have, and just when I was getting ready to go outside and start raking up the dry stalks in the gardens. But spring is coming.
If you are thinking about burning brush and grass, please remember that you must have a burn permit from the fire chief, Tim Terry, or his wife, Diane. Call them at 567-3621. It won’t take long for this snow to go and back to what it was March 19.
Pam Lashaway of Moody Road has returned home after having surgery on her left knee. She had the right one done last year, so hopefully that is all behind her and the recovery isn’t too painful.
The Prospect Community Club held its first meeting of the season March13, and had a guest speaker, Mary Brown, LPN, talk about osteoporosis. Thank you, Mary, for the education. At the meeting it was voted to increase the price of the bean suppers to $7 for adults and still $2 for children under 12. The first supper of the season will be April 13 4-6 p.m. in the Prospect Community Dining Room. We will be making May baskets the last week in April to give to our shut-ins and seniors. We have as much fun making and filling them as they do in receiving them. We try to spend 30-45 minutes for a short visit with them, and that gives us all satisfaction.
Paul and I went over to visit with our daughter, Lisa, and her husband, Dwayne, last Sunday. Dwayne suffered a heart attack March 8 and had a heart cauterization the following Monday and then was transferred to EMMC and had two stents put in his arteries. One was 80 percent blocked and two were 50 percent blocked. He came home the next day, but cannot work on his boat for five to six weeks and has to be cleared by the doctor first. That was a bad weekend for us, along with our dog, Pal, being euthanized. God does answer prayers and Dwayne is getting better. While we were over there four deer ran off their lawn and across the driveway in front of us, we saw an immature bald eagle down in their field and a partridge also on their front lawn. I'm beginning to think they are developing a sanctuary there.
Want some fresh eggs? Julie Briggs' hens are laying heavy and she is selling the eggs for $2 a dozen. Very good and all sizes. She lives at 474 Clark Rd. and her phone number is 745-0911.

Town meeting is right around the corner, Mar. 30 9 a.m. in the fire station. Voting for officers will be held March 29 10 a.m.-8 p.m. in the Town Office. Do hope to see a good turn out.
Jill and Lisa have been working hard to get the town reports done and ready to hand out. This will be the first time they have not been taken to a publisher, and they hope that it will save the town money. Good job, girls.
I want to wish you all a safe and healthy week, and please remember those who need a prayer or a card. Also, have a happy Easter and thank God that Jesus rose from the dead and paid for all our sins. God bless you all.
