Upcoming Calendar of MeetingS  & Events  

 WE  STILL  NEED YOUR HELP!  Our Speaker's Committee (Evelyn) has been pre-occupied with some issues helping her son's new business get off the ground.  Do YOU know of some interesting speakers?  Would you be a good speaker on a topic of interest?  Let me know of your ideas and possible contacts who would be interested in speaking to us!  


Please note- New Procedure to show your interest!  As we have so much going on, on top of the fact that spring is generally such busy time of year anyway, you will note that there are numerous items attached to this newsletter.  Please review each for specific details of different available activities and at lunch we will pass around "sign up sheets" on which you can reserve your spot where participation is limited as in the case of Gala's etc. or you can simply show that you are interested in participating in a particular activity where it is not limited.  As our lunch meeting are very busy, there is not time to give all of the relevant details so the attachments to this newsletter will be your source of activity details.  You can't say you didn't know anymore!




It is MONDAY.....  

are YOU wearing BLUE? 

There are Secrets in my House

Ssh!  Must be quiet as a mouse

Cause there are secrets at my house.                               

laughing faces, the smiles you see

are really only masks to me.

My mommy cries late at night

her and Daddy had an awful fight 

But I'm as quiet as a mouse

Cause there are secrets at my house.

Sissy's face is black and blue

Bobby's are is broke in two

But ssh! be quiet as a mouse.

Cause there are secrets at my house.      

I try to keep the secrets straight

like Bobby fell off his bike by the gate

Oh, and Sissy walked into a door

and there are many, many more

So all the secrets I can't tell

make my life a living hell

 But ssh! be quiet as a mouse 

Cause there are secrets in my house.
