May 2022

As I’m sure you’ll hear at least a few times in this Bulletin, the April Homecoming event was a huge success. Not only did were we able to come together as a community to see each other, but we were able to be productive at the same time. From my vantage point in the thorn bushes I was able to see about 4-6 people hurriedly raking leaves from near the building. I could hear a chainsaw running (or at least Mike revving it up). I could see the smoke coming off the grill. I missed all the socializing and things being done inside (and the work on the roof), but I hear there was quite a bit accomplished. There was a beautiful art exhibit I was able to see. BBYO was there. There was a book club meeting. Mel Brooks stopped by. Ok, maybe not the last one. But everything else was really all going on at the same time while we were all catching up with each other. It was quite a lot, and a good time had by all. I heard whispers that people think this should be not only an annual event, but a semiannual event. If you have an opinion on this or any other thoughts, please let us know. We are all ears.And there is more going on in May and into June. I won’t list it all, as it will be in the Bulletin. I will make note that there will be a pickleball “event” of some sort that is still in the works for the exact details. At the very least, I’ll be setting up a couple nets in the parking lot so people can give it a shot. For those of you who haven’t heard of pickleball yet…it’s the fastest growing sport in America and you’ll be hearing of it soon. Played with a paddle and a ball like a whiffleball, it’s a cross between tennis, badminton, and ping pong. It doesn’t take much skill to start, so come on out and hit a few balls with us. Or at least (hopefully) enjoy the nice weather.Andy
