March is here! Where o where have I been? In the home office working on 1st taxes, 2nd 2017 Boone County Premium Book, and 3rd life in general. Anyway, it came in like a lion, tornados etc. in the South and snow, wind and rain up here. Let’s hope it will go out like a lamb.
Now down to the upcoming calendar events. March 4th and 5th the quilters will be doing their thing at the hall. Join them for fellowship and working on your particular project.
March 9th, at the community Grange hall will be the annual meeting of FPP Farmland Protection Project. Remember Flora Grange was instrumental in getting this organization started and now the County has formed a commission to help with the education of the preservation of farmland. Meeting begins at 7:00 and everyone is welcome.
March 14th will be a regular meeting with cake, jello and/or sandwiches served following the meeting which will begin at 7:00pm. Serving committee consists of the Todd and Emalee Colver, Wayne and Nancy Lyford, and Ernie Wilson. Dues are still payable for the discounted amount of $19.00 per person. On April 1st, dues will jump to $25.00 per person. Now is the time to pay those dues!
March 17th is St. Patrick’s day. Wear your GREEN!
Second, this is an excellent time to sign up new members. Remember, new members only pay $2.25 for each month remaining in the year in which they join.
The hall has been rented out the 25th of March as well as the 31st of March thru the 2nd of April. Just so you know.
Third, mark your calendars for the Safety Town event June 6-9th. We are asking for your help to provide great time for the kids to learn about safety and there is a GREAT need for helpers during those 4 days.
April looks like a busy, busy month. Just a peak tells me that a big public dinner is planned for the 9th. Let us know if you can help either in the kitchen or dining room. The hall will be open for preparation of salads and baked goods for the bake sale on Saturday, the 8th of April around 7:30am.
Then May 20-21 is the 52th anniversary of the Model T club event at which we are serving food. Mark your calendars.
Please keep our members who have recently encounter health issues in your prayers. Lori Turner and Amy Cooper to name a couple of members that need our prayers.
