We can officially welcome “Spring!”  

Today I woke up to daffodils blooming in my front yard and the sound of birds singing.   

It was so nice to see all the “giving” again from our wonderful members.  Last Saturday, many members were very busy with projects.  For Prevent Child Abuse month, several of us planted three pinwheel gardens in at Vernon Town hall, the PAL, and one of the local schools.  Take a look at the beautiful pinwheels in the breeze as you drive by.  Others made the drive to Glen Rock to deliver the 56 sewing machines that were collected for our International Department’s project, “Pedals for Progress and Sewing Peace.”  Karen’s goal was 5 sewing machines.  This is truly amazing.  Pictures and articles have been in the local newspapers.

Spring Conference and Achievement day was a big success once again.  Congratulations to our “Gold” winners:  Deb for her crocheted carriage blanket; Barbara for her knitted carriage blanket; Judy F for her pound cake; Elaine H for her door wreath; and my all-purpose bag.  All of these “gold” entries will be going to convention.  We also had some first-place winners. It was a fun day and Vernon Township was well represented.


After reading our club report (thanks to Lisa for helping me), some people came up to me and said that “you did all that with only 24 members!”   I am very proud of all our members.  Each and every member has contributed something to our club and, in turn, to the community and around the world.

We now look forward to our Spring Annual Dinner on May 16th, Taste of Vernon on April 29th , and Farm to Fork Fondo on June 9th.
