From Where I Sit

      

April Greetings!

Ah, spring! We still maintain that living in a region with changing seasons make us appreciate them all the more. While this wasn't a horrible winter (Sorry East Coast friends), we are glad to have had several days of sunshine and warmth already this season.

Next month we will host our annual Mother's Day Luncheon on the Friday before Mother's Day. On Friday, May 11, we invite you to join us this year for a delicious lunch and our special guest speaker, Michelle Carolla, news anchor at WMSN, Madison.

We also want to extend an early invitation to all of you to our Annual Meeting which will be held on Thursday, May 24, at 5:30 pm. The annual meeting portion will kick off our evening with reports from our Finance Committee and Auditors, followed by our annual volunteer awards. We'll have complimentary appetizer and drinks and celebrate the wonderful contributions of our many volunteers.

Of course, the granddaddy of all events, StrawberryFest, is slated for Saturday, June 16. This year marks the 31st year people from around our community have come out to support the Colonial Club. With a wide variety of activities, great food, and wonderful entertainment (Marci and the Highlights are returning!), it promises to be a wonderful day as always. As most of you know, this is an important fundraiser for the Colonial Club and your support is needed. It's not too late to get involved by donating an item for the drop drawing, becoming a business sponsor or organizing a team of runners/walkers. Contact Kim at 837-4611 ext. 120 and offer your support.
