Well, we’ve made it through another week everyone. Good for you! We want to make sure you stay well for the reopening. You know we can’t wait for that day. It is necessary though, for your protection, that we follow the guidelines when we receive them. Right now, we are all “hanging in”.

However, good news, The Tuesday and Thursday take outs will continue through June. Woohoo!! Here is next week’s menu.
Tues. June 2nd- Shepherd’s Pie, Dessert.
Thurs. June 4th- Italian Marinated Chicken Breast, Baked Potato, Broccoli, Pudding.
Please call by 10:30 and leave a message. (603)543-5998.Members-$4-non-members-$5. Pick up-11:45-12:30.Don’t miss all this fantastic, freshly prepared goodness. Thank you Ken and all the volunteers.

Thanks to all of you made the Take-out, Turkey Dinner a success. Over one hundred and forty people enjoyed a delicious dinner Saturday. And no cooking or dishes!! Can’t beat that.

Our concert in June is still on hold. We are patiently waiting for the guidelines from the state. As soon as we know how to proceed, we will be off and running to get set up and ready for you. There is so much to think about to insure your safety. So please be patient with us. The music and safety are for everyone’s benefit.

We are still planning on the three events to get you out of the house. The first being the Summer Fling Craft Fair, Sat. July 23rd-9AM-2PM. There will be an abundance of beautiful items as the crafters have had a little extra time to make more product. You wait! They are going to amaze you.

The second is the Gigantic Annual Penny Sale, Sun. Aug.23rd-1PM. We have been busy prepping prizes, numbering and putting tickets into bags. So much so, at night we dream of those tickets going into the bags. Believe us, we won’t run out of them. See you then.

The third event is the Annual Car Show. We have had calls from the car clubs already asking if we are having the show. So far, so good. But, here again,it depends on the guidelines. We have ordered and received the entrance tickets, are gathering the volunteers,soliciting for trophies and T-shirts. We are counting the canopies and tables and looking at the menu. The committees are talking about supplies and safety. We are staying positive. Feels like a show to us!

It’s so hard to predict what will be happening in this “far from normal” world, but we are in this together and need to look out for each other. This form of the Golden Rule surely applies here. “Treat others as you would like to be treated”. Think about it.

Thought for the week: Learn to let things go you can’t control. Less stress.

Have a good week everyone. Be respectful of others. Stay safe.

Our halls await your laughter and lively conversation. See you soon.
