The main topic of conversation, the weather, and it is really strange. If it’s not rain, it’s wind or snow. Keeps you on your toes.

I guess it is a small price to pay in order to live in not only “the most beautiful place in the nation” but also the third healthiest place in the nation.

On Friday the 20th, go to the Glen Lake Elementary PTO Candy Land Spring Carnival from 5-8 p.m. There will be games, prizes, inflatables, concessions and a dunk tank featuring Glen Lake celebrities like Elementary Principal Mrs. Wright, a spaghetti dinner, plus the return of the silent auction. Also you are able to bid on classroom baskets and play something new, a “candy walk” not a cake walk. Admission is $5 for children, adults are free. Different, but true.

Happy Birthday wishes to Frank Wilcox, Monty Basch from Anderson’s market, Bucky Noonan of Grumpy’s market George Wilson, Ron Fornowski and Christine Neiswonger.

Happy Anniversary to Lynn and Jim Becker.

The Empire Area Heritage Group will meet next Thursday, April 26th at 1 p.m. at the Empire Area Museum Complex. You are invited to bring a friend. The discussion will be the upcoming plans for the new year and clean-up details in getting ready for spring and summer. The group can always use volunteers and I can imagine it would be a very interesting place to work.

The Glen Arbor landing ramp should be in place by the time you are reading this. Keep in mind this year that the ramp will be monitored in order to see that everyone pays the ramp fee which pays for the ramp and up keep. I’m sure that most of the users are paying and it shouldn’t be a problem.

Go Hawks.
