I hope everyone is enjoying this new spring season with its vibrant colors and beautiful scents and sounds.

Along with the cold weather, our pool tournaments and Tai Chi classes are coming to a close. We can reflect on the good that has been brought to us through these times and look forward to what our next “season” will hold.

This is also my last week as co-site manager and I would like to say, “thank you,” to so many of you for the friendship I have enjoyed through your company.

I have been blessed by your smiles, wisdom, stories and laughter. I am glad I do not have to say, “good-bye” to you as I anticipate seeing many of you throughout the community.

We look forward to meeting and welcoming our new co-site manager next week.

April Fool?s Day was wild at the senior center with a number of pranks attempted, but not all of them succeeded.

We were greeted by a life-size doll seated on the sofa with a letter of introduction in her hand. She was Miss April Fool, wearing two different shoes at the end of lumpy legs.

We reviewed the March end-of-month report, with an average congregate attendance of 52.

Shirley Bowers brought in tulips and we also have vases of artificial tulips on the tables, thanks to Wilma Gilmer.

Rita Hynes, representing Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice, spoke April 6. She told about differences between profit and non-profit hospices.

We will be recognizing volunteers several times this week. The theme for volunteer week is ?Touching Lives, Lifting Spirits.?

Come join us for Senior Center Day April 20. Janet Blue will talk about proposed housing options.

Spring has definitely sprung as evidenced by the warm days, cool nights, and all the people out walking, working in their yards and gardens, and just generally “out and about.?

National Volunteer Week is April 10-16 and the theme this year is “Volunteers, Touching Lives, Lifting Spirits!”

At Peabody Senior Center, like so many places, we could not survive without our wonderful volunteers. They are what allow us to continue to serve our community and we sincerely appreciate them for it.

Our weekly Lenten Service is April 13 and will be presented by Rodger Charles of the Baptist Church here in Peabody.
