Another beautiful and very busy week and weekend. The flowers are beginning to bloom, and the leaves are starting.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you ladies.

Thursday was World Day of Prayer. Many gathered on the steps of the Tannery Pond and after the ringing of the chimes from the Methodist Church a small service was enjoyed and letting the community know what our nation stands for.

Friday night many enjoyed going to the Tricky Tray held at the Adirondack Tri-County nursing home.

The weekend held several fundraiser meals. The Ham Dinner was held at the Ski Bowl, the Pork Dinner was held at the Methodist Church, and the Spaghetti Dinner was held at the Wevertown Community Center.

Many enjoyed attending the Whitewater Derby over the weekend. Roger and Claudette Jones enjoyed selling the buttons. I remember when Jim Ordway sold the buttons. His hat was always covered with the buttons he had from year to year.

Several ladies enjoyed the Ladies Retreat at the Farmhouse on the Edwards Hill Road on the weekend. Such an inspiration and a lot to carry with them.
