There have been many signs of spring this week, the Boquet River is full and flowing down to the dam. Several flowers are showing their blossoms, buds coming out on the trees and bushes. There has been a lot more bird activity all signs that we look for in the month of April. Several came out this past Saturday to the Soup & Bread Lunch at the Methodist Church, this event was to raise money to send some of our youth to Summer Camp. The Congregational Church had a monthly supper and the next one at the Methodist church will be on May 1st.

I had the pleasure to sit in to listen to a good size group of local and area musicians that come together to further the love of music, especially Bluegrass style music. There was many different instruments all blending together. They gather at the school and break off into groups of like instruments to share and learn together. Then they come together in the auditorium and blend together. The public is welcome to drop in around 3:15 p.m. to listen free of charge, their next gatherings will be on May 5 and May 19.
