We finally received some good showers in March, with the March winds, and April started with a very dreary, wet, day, with more forecast. So, April showers are to bring May flowers, as we have already enjoyed.

"Just Thinking"

During those many rainy days,

With that rain getting in the way,

We heard amid foiled hopes and plans.

"There's got to be a better day."

When rain and hail was expected,

Fears of storm did some allay

With thoughts of sunny, clearing times,

"We'll wait for a better day."

Thinking of opposite circumstances,

There is one thing I can say.

"During prolonged drouths and heat waves,

A Rainy day is a Better day."

And April is Keep America beautiful month, lawn and garden, car care, home improvement, tackle your clutter, decorating, kite, straw hat, pecan, poetry, youth sports safety, mathematics education, physical wellness, stress awareness, injury prevention, cancer control, pest management, and humor and smile month.

April is also National Volunteer Month.

V aluable is the work you do.

O ustanding is how you always come through

L oyal, sincere, and full of good cheer;

U ntiring is your thoughts throughout the year,

N otable are the contributions you make.

T rustworthy in every project you take;

E ager to reach your every goal;

E ffective in the way you fulfill your role.

R eady with a smile like a shining star;

S pecial and wonderful - that's what you are.

More volunteers are needed in the Lincoln Center.

Remember the dinner at the Sugar Hill Church this Sunday, April 15, with music and singing all afternoon.

Happy birthday to Colleen Morris, Jamie Bess, Brynlee Luttrell, Jessie Curtis, Joey Cox, Karen Williams, Joleena Hobbs.

Happy anniversary to Keith and Dawn Myers,

Happy years, all!
