Spring is a lovely time of the year. We decorate our tables at the center with small vases of silk flowers, but fresh flowers are welcome. Heather brought a spring boquet and earlier we had some lilly of the valley and spring flowering shrubs. We have several extra vases, so bring your own and share the beauty of your flower beds. The real things have to be special.
Speaking of nature’s beauty, have you noticed that the wooded hillsides are almost as colorful in the spring as in the fall with their many shades of green?
I had a treat Tuesday, when a full grown deer strolled through our yard. Farmers are busy planting, and spraying… cultivating is a thing of the past. Many of us are busy just trying to get the lawn mowed, things grow so fast in the spring.
By the time you read this, Memorial Day will be past, but remember when we took real flowers to decorate the graves (back before artificial everything)? Families lived close around, and a Sunday picnic would be held. We didn’t have Monday as an official holiday, it now seems like Memorial Day is more a start of the summer recreation season. Campgrounds will be crowded and highways busy with people rushing to play.
Tuesday, May 25, Joe and Mattie Kauffman brought Livi and Elizabeth High of Sarasota, Florida to lunch. Mattie and Elizabeth are sisters, and they were going to visit a brother in Indiana before returning to Sarasota. The ladies’ name was Mast before they married and they grew up in this area. The Highs have lived in Florida for 35 years.
The members of the Grand View Club had lunch at the Center Wednesday, May 26. Those attending were Vivian Seitsinger, Ellavene Longwell and Alice Goodwin. This was a 100% attendance… that’s pretty good attendance in this day and age. Grandview was a rural school located west of Wellman and the club originated as a parent-teacher group for people having children attending the school. The school was closed about 40 years ago, and children from that area now attend Mid-Prairie schools.
When writing of upcoming events, I sometimes forget something, so I hope you read the announcements on our chalk board.
