How wonderful to have all of the sunshine and it feels like spring.

You know when it get to be warm the deer get out and roam. Well! James Burns went deer hunting in his wife’s van. She was not too happy, but now it is all right because she has a new car to ride around in. Just a warning, the deer are out so drive carefully.

We will have our first Saturday Breakfast on April 5 and as soon as breakfast is over we will move everything from the cafeteria so they can get started replacing the floor. Anyone that wants to stay and help move tables will be welcome.

We had a lot of shingles blow off of the gym and hope to get those replaced soon.

Have a great week.
