Oops, my mind must be really slipping, I not only showed up at the
dentist a week early Monday, but the Newsletter just slipped through the
cracks along with it. My apologies.
Monday was April Fool’s Day and Bob Helmstadter sure stepped up and
provided us with some April Fool’s witticism. I thought he was serious
at first. He was so funny. Then Virginia Krou supplied another joke.
Made for a feel good day.
We had 85 members present, Dolorse Kelley won the 50/50 and Gary Brunner and Lon Childress won the Guessing Game.
There were no anniversaries. Bob Mellenger, who is one of our new residents, had the only birthday. So Happy Birthday Bob and welcome to our Park.
Ron Madden, as usual, was our mic runner
Judy Fraiser welcomed a visiting grandson to her home, I think she
has a houseful now. Phil Manning’s son, Randall is also here.
The Carey’s who bought Bruce and Terrie’s home donated quite a few books to our ever growing library. If you like to read, please check out all that is offered at the clubhouse.
Wayne Voight was taken by ambulance a few days ago but is back home
and will be going for further medical treatment. Joyce Chapman is doing
ok and is using a knee walker to get around, Gerald and Miriam Steele
have been under the weather and Bert Centers has the flu. Judy Fahl is
having surgery, and if you remember Jim and Iolene Mossburg, who used to
live here, they lost their son to ALS recently. Bob Helmstadter read a
message from Dave Acker that said Rose is on comfort measures. Rod
Kelley is home from the hospital and is on antibiotics. Prayers for
them all please.
Bluegrass is still going strong with 120 present last week. Two more sessions and it will end for the summer.
Since so many celebrate Easter at church on the 21st, it was decided
to have international dinners out every week instead. Check your
calendars for date and times. Sign up sheet is on the bulletin board.
I came, I saw, I forgot what I was doing, retraced my steps, got lost on the way back, now I have no idea what is going on!!!!!! I think senility is going to be a smooth transition for me
Nancy Pratt, who is a professional photographer, will be doing the
