I am too old for a visit from the Easter bunny, but I still managed to enjoy the day. Hopefully, all the kiddies had fun at the Easter egg hunts around and found lots of goodies in their baskets. You can’t beat a wonderful church service, family and good food. I trust you all had that blessing.


Graduation announcements are starting to show up. That means school is coming close to an end in a few weeks. No matter how much I liked school, the beginning of summer was always exciting. I know there are some antsy kids out there.


On Saturday, the 22nd, Living Life Reformed Church is hosting a carnival. There will be games, bingo, cotton candy, popcorn and more! All proceeds will help with their White Earth mission trip. So be sure to come from 6-8 p.m. to enjoy a fun night.


If you are in the mood for a movie, Living Life Reformed Church will show “God’s Not Dead II” on April 30 at 6 p.m. with popcorn and other snacks available. A free-will offering will be accepted to help support the mission team going to Bolivia.


Senior Diners meets on the 24th for a meal of cheesy ham and potato casserole, mixed vegetables, cinnamon raisin bread and grapes. The program planned will be presented by Susan Keene, Aging Partners on “Heart Healthy Food.” A handout will be given on “What does it All Mean? Understanding Food Packaging and Nutrient Claims” by Denise Boyd, R.D., Aging Partners. If you have questions, call Paula at 402-416-7693.


There are a few celebrating special days this week. Birthday wishes to: Anna DeBoer (22nd); Sally Jennings (24th); and Avery Morrison (26th). Dan and Brenda Rice celebrate their 28th anniversary on the 22nd. Happy 54th anniversary to Allen and Marge Klein on the 26th. Best wishes to all!


My tulips are blooming so beautifully now. I do wish they would last longer. The first two mowings of the grass have been a little painful. I don’t know how many times I had to empty that bag. We have chances of rain for many of the days ahead. That probably means the grass will be tall again before I can mow. Here I am complaining about mowing already when I was just looking forward to it a few weeks ago. Humans are fickle or is it just me?
