As I write this on May 2, the snow is gently falling. It?s the first time in 10 years anyone cancelled coming in because of weather this time of year.

Sue Clough, president of the Marion Senior Center board, honored volunteers, mostly the quilters, in our Craft Corner.

They were Evelyn Jewett, Shirley Bowers, Sue Clough, Almeda Kahns and Shirley Moore.

We showed a video from the Branson show, Pierce Arrow. It was provided by Thelma and Larry Blosser. A number of people watched the entire 90-minute long video. Good music, good comedy.

Spring is popping up all over and we are grateful for the moisture received, but now the sunshine is looking good.

Along with the flowers and the grass, which needs mowing all of a sudden, the trees bursting with leaves and the birds back is full force, I believe maybe this time, spring has really sprung.

Commodities should be here Thursday, May 9, and as soon as they come in, we will bag them immediately after lunch for distribution from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. that same day. Be sure to mark the calendar.

Rodger Charles, library director at Peabody Township Library, will be with us May 15 updating us on all the changes taking place at the library.

There are many updates taking place and Rodger is an exciting speaker with lots of firsthand knowledge on what’s going on.

Bingo is May 16 and we will bring canned goods for the local food bank.

We haven’t favored this organization for awhile.

Please come join us and bring a food donation.

The Marion County Board meeting will be in Florence May 17. This is an informative meeting for seniors in our county and everyone would be welcome. The board welcomes attendance and participation.

Representatives are also being sought making this a good opportunity to get involved and make your voice heard.
