I hope everyone has made reservations at their favorite restaurants for Restaurant Week. Although we may not have a lot of restaurants in our immediate area, we do have some of the best. Take advantage of the dining deals and support restaurant week.

The Glen Arbor Art Association’s Talk About Art series will continue with host Norm Wheeler in conversation with Traverse Cities Fleda Brown on Sunday, May 7, at 2 p.m. at the Leelanau School. Wheeler and Brown will discuss how life events have found their way into her writing, etc. For more information call the Glen Arbor Art Association at 334-6112 or check the website glenarborart.org.

Speaking of the Art Association, it is the time to register for summer art classes. Classes are open to students 16 and older. Classes are kept small to provide the best possible educational experience. To register go to the art association web site, or call 334-6112.

Cutting and removing the downed timber along the road will make the area appear cleaner and alleviate some of the fire danger. Good idea.

Although not really advertised, the Empire Lions Club pancake breakfast this past Sunday at the Empire Townhall was a success. Lots of people eating lots of pancakes and as always a good value.

Happy Birthday wishes to Pat Alonzi, Shelley Yeager, Bunny Lanham, Vicki Baxter and to our daughter-in-law Kelly Thompson.

I guess if a person wants to root for a team the best team is, Go USA.

Have fun, be careful, and welcome back to the snow birds.
