Well, I finally made it home. In four days’ time, we drove about 3,000 miles. Can you imagine how long it took the pioneers and wagon trains to go that far? I’m sure glad that I didn’t have to travel like that.
It is a bit of short notice, but our St. Patrick’s Day dinner is on Wednesday, March 15. This is so we can observe Lent here at the center.

The Monday evening Pinochle players meet at 7 p.m. on March 20. Both card groups need more players. If you want to join either group, just show up and play.
Painting and crafts have been put on hold until after tax season is over, as they both use the same space.
