Still the weather vacillates between winter, spring, and summer! It must be confusing for the wild creatures as well. The hummingbirds are back now and Ralph Michael told me that they had Baltimore Orioles at their feeder one day. Rose-breasted grosbeaks have been in evidence as well and we had not seen any in yard for several years.
I was pleased to be able to unite Michelle Michael and Christopher Tooley in marriage this past Saturday on a day originally predicted to include rain, but which turned out to be sunny for their ceremony.
Just to let you know, Dorothy and Roger Pingree are now in Room 10 at Brookside Nursing Home, 120 Christian St. White River Jct VT 05001. Stop by if you happen to be over that way or drop them a card. They are actually in the room next to Clara Hoisington.
A couple more May birthdays, some of which have passed, but congratulations to one and all: Wendy Olson (5/10) and Betty Ann Hayward (5/15)
I was unable to attend the Reading Group this week, but I heard there was a lively conversation about The Golden Egg. The selection for the 6/30 meeting is Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey. I understand it is free on Google Books for digital reading and also from Project Gutenberg.
Judy Hyjek read a story at church for Children‘s Sunday, then they planted seeds as we discussed the seeds that God plants in our hearts. It was a treat to have Chris Wilson sing a solo for us this Sunday and Terry Hunt lead the children’s song. In an effort to make more space downstairs in the Community Room where the monthly Reach Out Luncheons are held, two of the church pews are available for purchase for $300 each. Let me know if you are interested!
The Reach Out Luncheon is this Thursday, 5/18. Windsor Youth is providing the meal and entertainment. Hope folks will be able to join us!
