Wow, Wow this has been a great week for me as first I was able to see the improvements at the Smith House, the new paint colors, the waiting room has been redesigned, all very nice.
Then another pleasure was to get a walk through of the converted old school building. This is not totally finished, but much has been done and you can get a look as to how it will be when completed. The developer sure has a great plan and it will be great when fully finished. He is hopeful that he will be taking in residents by early summer. It is great to see that a meaningful past building in our community now has a new use; and be able to provide a much needed service to people here in our area.

The weather was making promises that spring was not far off, and then last Friday we woke up to a world covered with white snow, didn’t stay long. We even noticed another sure sign of better weather as we noticed that Ed Collins had his lawn chairs out ready to receive guest.
