I just found out that the weekly Lorane Senior “Lunch Bunch” group has changed days. They are now meeting at 12:15 p.m. on Mondays. This group has been meeting for years at the Lorane Rebekah Hall and it’s been a popular social event featuring not only a free meal, but lots of conversation and games. I was told that on most weeks there are an average of 10-15 people participating and I know that one of the big reasons is Linda DeBos’ fantastic cooking. If you’re considered a senior citizen and are interested in joining in the fun and food, you’ll be welcomed by all next Monday… just show up early enough to make sure there’s enough food prepared. The doors open about an hour before the meal is served.
The Lorane Christian Church is hosting a movie and pizza dinner at the church on the evening of Friday, April 7 beginning at 5:30 p.m. The feature-length Christian movie is called “Risen.” According to Wikipedia, “‘Risen’ is a 2016 American biblical drama film directed by Kevin Reynolds; it was conceived from a screenplay written by Reynolds and Paul Aiello. The film stars Joseph Fiennes, Tom Felton, Peter Firth, and Cliff Curtis, and details a Roman soldier’s search for Jesus’ body following his Resurrection. It was produced by Columbia Pictures”
As I mentioned last week, a group of interested elementary school parents are hoping to set up a committee or organization similar to PTA or PTO that will represent Applegate Elementary interests and needs. The Crow Booster Club, for the past several years, has dedicated all of its fundraising to all of the schools in the Crow-Applegate-Lorane School District for athletic, academic and social needs. It will be holding its monthly meeting at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 6 and will discuss setting up committees dedicated to AES so that a new non-profit will not have to be set up. The Crow Booster Club has notified the C-A-L school board so that an official discussion can begin on the proposal. The meeting will be held at the Crow High School cafeteria. Be sure to attend if you are interested in getting a group organized.
Updates will be posted to both the Lorane, Oregon and the Crow Community Facebook pages.
I’m excited. I’m planning to take my two youngest granddaughters to see “Beauty and the Beast” this Saturday. I always love to spend time with Hannah and Natalie and this seemed like a perfect opportunity. I already saw this newest version of Disney’s movie with some of our other family members last weekend, but this is one I could watch over and over again. I put it right up there with “The Sound of Music” as one of my very all-time favorite movies. I definitely recommend it.
Here are some upcoming dates to remember that I’ve already covered in past columns:
The Rural Art Center/Lorane Grange-sponsored Lorane Talent Show to be held on April 2, beginning at 3:00 p.m. at the grange
The Lorane Community Group will be meeting at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 11 at the Lorane Deli.
