As we slowly leave winter behind and enter into Spring we are grateful for, and take advantage of, the spurts of warm weather. We’ve survived the winter cold and the seemingly endless snowstorms. Unseasonably warm days in March made the first work parties of the year pleasant as we prepared and cleaned the patio for the Saint Patrick’s Day Party. Special thanks to all who organized, planned, and volunteered to make the Saint Patrick’s Day Party such an enjoyable event. Good food, good music, and fantastic company, as well as the warmth of the fire pit, made for a memorable day.  And many thanks to all who attended and helped to make the day the success it was.


Please remember: April 17th; the Columbiette’s are hosting a virtual Tricky Tray. Doors will be open at 10 am for socially distanced ticket sales and drop. Tickets will be drawn at 7 pm via Facebook live.


With the end of Lent and resurrection of our Lord comes renewal. The renewal of life, hope, and faith. Just as with Spring, we see the flowers emerge and bring color into the world, so too does the Lord’s resurrection brighten the winter of our lives with hope and love. May this renewal of faith continue to blossom within you throughout the year.


As warmer weather begins, the flowers and trees start to bloom; work parties have started at the grove and pool. If you are interested in lending a hand, please reach out to any of our officers. We would greatly appreciate your help as we work to ensure our grounds are prepared for our families to enjoy during the summer season.


Due to the pandemic, I have continued to receive requests for access to virtual meetings. We will continue to hold social distanced meetings at the council hall. However, we are working on including a virtual feed to accommodate anyone who is not comfortable with attending in person. Your voices have been heard, and we are working on it. I thank you all for your interest.


May you and your families stay safe and enjoy the warm weather.
