Rejoice, and enjoy the wonders of spring as things come back to life. We are so thankful for the foot print that Leanna DeNeal has provided for us with the plantings all along their property in Route 22, and along the stone wall at the Drug Store.
A favorite place to take moms for their Mother's Day treat seemed to be the Harmony Restaurant. That is where my family, along with the Gload family, enjoyed a great meal and saw many of our friends there. It was a very busy place. Another delightful event this past weekend was the Mother's Day Breakfast at the Reber Church this past Saturday. The French family organized and put it on, using their season's Maple syrup for the pancakes, with the proceeds going to the church fuel fund.
The vast amounts of water have sure made the grass grow. I heard a couple of lawn mowers out this past week. A few more people have returned from their winter quarters. So welcome home to Bobbie & Brad Paye, Lucille & Harry Little. Sadly many of us bade our last goodbye to my former partner at the Paine Library, as Janet Tucker was laid to rest on Saturday. Janet was a great partner and we enjoyed our many years together. Many of our summer families will soon be returning to open their camps; I am sure some will be surprised at the high water levels they will find.
A reminder to come out to vote on the school budget and the election of two members for the board. A way that we can show our appreciation for the great job the present board and Supt. did to keep the budget low, is for many to come out and cast you vote. The vote takes place on Tuesday, May 17 in the school gym from noon to 8 p.m. The next movie for the Champlain Valley Film Society will be on Saturday, May 14, at the Whallonsburg Grange starting at 8 p.m. We are very fortunate that they show top notch movies at a very reasonable price.
