Spring is definitely in the air. I’ve been feeling it for a long time, but haven’t been able to enjoy it. I caught a nasty virus after our trip to California and it’s taken me over two weeks to even come out of the fog of sinus headaches, constantly dripping nose and cough spasms. My doctor gave me a prescription for antibiotics but told me not to fill it for several days… about halfway into my second week. I can understand the hesitancy with not wanting to use antibiotics unless we absolutely have to, but the fact that we must wait two weeks to get better on our own is a bit daunting.
Anyway, I’ve emerged from the fog finally and have been rebuilding my energy level. I even painted our guest bathroom yesterday. Jim tried mowing the lawn, but it was still a bit too wet, leaving large wet clumps of grass trailing the lawnmower. Soon it will need to be done every few days! I’m ready!
The Lorane Church ladies are holding a bake sale at the Lorane Family Store on Saturday, March 24, beginning at 10:00 a.m. As we have all learned, plan to get there early to have a good selection of all of the yummy cookies, brownies and other sweets that are offered.
Later that evening, the Lorane Grange will have another delicious spaghetti dinner and bingo night starting at 5:30 p.m. The progressive blackout amount continues to grow and is very “winnable,” so be sure to come and enjoy all of the fun and hi-jinx, not to mention the good food.
On Sunday, March 25 at 10:00 a.m., the Lorane Christian Church, will present a moving, inspirational opportunity to experience “The Last Supper” to commemorate Easter by bringing the major biblical event to life. Everyone is invited to take part.
The Lorane talent show will be happening on Sunday, April 8, a week after April Fools Day this year. Actually it would have been a perfect time to schedule it on April 1st. The show runs from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m and it’s free! This fun event is sponsored jointly each year by the Lorane Grange and the Rural Art Center. The organizers try to fit 20 five-minute acts into the program in an hour’s time, so if you’re interested in taking part, figure out what you’d like to share with everyone and sign up for a spot. According to Lisa Livelybrooks, “We have had chicken roping, a professional show tune performance, a clarinet solo, a tap dance, and a burped ABC song.” So build up your courage and get in on the fun. To sign up, send an email to the Rural Art Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact one of its members or a Lorane Grange member. And… if you’re too chicken or totally lacking in the talent department, mark it on your calendars so you can enjoy watching everyone else perform.
