Quite the month, including a day of 90+ temperatures, snow elsewhere in the state, and our share of rain.
At the monthly dinner meeting we had the pleasure of hosting the Annie Up Fund Board of Directors. Both Lynn Leighton and Lion Mike Lancor spoke about the Fund–its history and the various uses of the money. During dinner we were treated to a wonderful story of Annie’s life which was put together by her brother-in-law for her March celebration. It was a wonderful montage of Annie’s childhood, her family, her spirit, and her meetings with politicians and celebrities…as well as her amazing positivity and telling everyone they were her favorite person.
And because the weather is getting so nice, it is time to start our summer project of beautifying and maintaining the upper section of Sutherland Park. Pete Strople and Sally Sibulkin spent some time Sunday morning weeding, but more needs to be done before we purchase the annuals and bark mulch.
And remember, White Cane Day will be observed on Saturday, May 27. Stop by and say hi to Peter and Kathy Allen, Joe and Pat Keegan, Ed and Sandy Meskys, Bob Purdy, Pete Strople, John Menken, Sally Sibulkin, Mark Cotrupi and Don Trudeau AND the SCOUTS at both Heath’s Hardware and Heath’s Supermarket. from 9-3.
