DIXON — Hasn’t this been a wild April? I am ready for some calming May flowers and all the delights brought on as spring continues. The greenhouses are having open houses and we just need the ground to warm up. 

I took a week to tour the rainforest of the farthest western shore of the 48 states and of course it rained all but the last day. It was very beautiful, anyway. I was delayed in arriving by an avalanche over Snoqualmie Pass and over-nighted in the Seattle bus station. I missed our last snowfall, though. Welcome May; bring it on. 

We share in the excitement and pride of having our own 90 year-old (plus) senior, Don Siers participate in the Big Sky Honor Flight that was honored in Washington, D.C. recently. As a WWII veteran of several overseas battles, Don was one of several Montana men invited to fly to Washington, D.C. and be thanked by being treated royally for their contributions so many years ago. They also got to see some sights. Don is an active and valuable member of our center and we also thank him for his faithful service.

The latest pinochle scores show Anita Seibert being the high scorer and Ruby Mocabee as the low scorer and Bob Watson had the most pinochles. The door prize went to Mary Howell. This traveling group meets in Dixon on the fourth Monday after our evening meal. All are welcome to join us at 6:30 p.m.
