Well, we made it through another tough winter and are now beginning to enjoy the warmer and sunnier weather. Ugh! That means the grass will need cut!!! Never ending!! But, you know what??? Life is Good.
Come to our April meeting on Monday, April 20th at 7:30 pm to hear Debra Crandall, from Penn Waste, talk about recycling. Bring your questions.
The Banquet Committee is set to go and each of you should receive an envelope with all the information and prices and due dates. Thanks so much to Deb Hammond, Karen Mamrak, and Kim Lahnstein for taking on this huge job and being so organized and thorough.
If any of you are interested in attending the 118h Annual Business Meeting/Convention at the Eden Resort in Lancaster, PA, May 15-17, or the Summer Leadership Convention at the Penn Stater in State College, PA, July 17-18, please let me know. The Lancaster convention must be paid by April 14th so time is short on that one.
Don’t forget food items for the food bank this month plus Lois is still collecting books – last call.
Have a great month and I will see you soon.
Debra Crandall from Penn Waste gave a very informative presentation on Recycling at the April meeting.
