We’ve finally made it to the month of springtime! Seed catalogues are trickling in, buds are sprouting, and the robins will soon fill our yards! My grandmother was always wary of warm days in February. She was quite certain that budding trees would freeze, and that the traditional easter storm would damage fledgling plants. She was often correct, but this year we seem to have dodged the brunt of winter. We had a couple of single digit days, but most of the time, we hovered in the 20s and 30s at night and the 40s and 50s during the day. Not quite a “proper” winter, but not many of us are complaining!
We have another jam-packed issue of the Chronicle this month! We hope you enjoy reading our paper as much as we enjoy writing it! Our goal is to help bring communities and neighbors together by sharing positive stories and local events. We are grateful for our advertisers who make it possible for us to continue bringing you the paper each month. Please thank them when you visit their places of business!
I hope you’ve had a chance to see one of the high-school musicals in our area. We took Miss Iva Grace to see Cinderella at Broadway High School on Saturday night (make sure you check out the photos of the musical shared with us by local photographer, Sydney Coffman!). Iva was sure that the glass slipper would have fit her foot if the prince had “tried just a little bit harder!” Sigh. It’s so much fun to see some of my former middle school students all grown up and acting in the school musical! I have been in the world of 7th grade for so many years I sometimes forget that children do eventually grow up!
Enjoy this month and keep in touch! We love hearing from you!
Until next time,
