It was kind of demoralizing to see that snow the other day! Yet there are two sides to everything and I chose to look at the positive side. A couple of times now I have been told that snow at this stage of spring growth is called “poor man's fertilizer.”
I regret that last week there was one news item which didn't meet the deadline for publication. Nancy Twitchell had called me to let us all know that her mother, Rose Dyer, will celebrate her 93rd birthday on April 25. Rose, at this time resides in Florida and her address is 565 Old Oak Street, Melbourne, FL 32935. Rose would be delighted to receive some birthday wishes and/or get well wishes. Let’s hope that cards will still make it in time to brighten her day. Happy Birthday, Rose, from the whole neighborhood.
Last Saturday we enjoyed a belated birthday cake for my grandson, Ben Cyr. It was more so special as this was the first time in over a year with everyone present — Katy and her husband Jim Cyr, their sons Ben and Boden; Samantha Mullen and her daughter Hayli; Sam’s partner Ed Mallett and his kids Riley and Andrew, and my son, Ryan Hannigan.
The Alder River Grange will hold their next meeting on April 23 at the Hall. There will be a potluck supper at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting will start 7:30 p.m.
Now it is time for the new Trivia question. Who was the first white woman to spend a winter in Sudbury Canada?
