You did get out and enjoy the beautiful weather last weekend. Lots of things to do and take part in.

We were busy at the sale on the golf course, last Saturday and Sunday. We, members of the Lanark Village Golf Club, thank you for your support.

Meanwhile, at water’s edge, on Marine Street, in beautiful downtown Carrabelle, the annual riverfront festival was in full swing. Big crowds, boats, last Friday and Saturday. No, my duck didn’t come in first. Well, maybe next year. Steve and the crew also thank you for your support.

Guess we’ll have to find something else to do on Wednesday nights until October. The members of the Lanark Travelers and the Lanark Golf Club hope to see you then.

Starting Thursday, May 2, the food bank in Carrabelle will open from noon until 2 p.m. After you have enjoyed lunch at the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center, you can pick up your commodities at the food bank.

We still are able to enjoy those huge hamburgers and chips on Friday nights, and the pizza on Sundays, at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82. Just follow the signs and crowds on Oak Street in Lanark. Serving for both hamburgers and pizza are from 5 to 7 p.m. Hamburgers and chips requires a donation of $6. Pizza by the slice is $1 each, whole pizza is $8 and take out is $10 donation. Call the Legion at 697-9998 to place your orders.

Ladies, pick out a nice hat, and get the mint julep glasses out, and get ready to watch the Kentucky Derby this Saturday, May 4. Have a few friends over and party hearty. The last Kentucky Derby party that the late Vic Imbierowicz and I had, there were 22 people at our house on Carlton. What an afternoon!

After the Derby, you can motor over to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, Highway 98 East, Medart. Members of the Knights of Columbus will prepare and serve a chicken and rib dinner for you, with all the sides. Your donation of $10 will get your taste buds working. See ya there.

Or, you can drive to the senior center. 201 Avenue F., Carrabelle and dance the night away. Ron Vice will be there to provide the music for your listening and dancing pleasure. So pack your favorite beverage, grab your dancing shoes and your main squeeze and come on down.

For those of you who have dogs to take for a walk, before you leave the house, be sure you have some paper towels, a plastic bag, Fido and a leash.

Be kind to one another, check in on the sick and housebound and smile. Jesus loves you.

Until next time, God bless America, our troops, and the poor, homeless and hungry.
