Wonít have coffee at Chillas Hall until the fall; last Friday, May 2 was the last one for the season. Thank you for your support.

Last weekend was gorgeous. Weather-wise, I guess itís time to start spring-cleaning. Scrub a dub dub.

Hope the weather is nice for this Saturday, May 10. Members of the youth group from St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church will hold their annual car wash at Sacred Heart Church 2653 US 98, here in Lanark Village. Bring your car by between 3 and 5 p.m. That way, the car will be nice and clean when you take your mother out to lunch on Sunday. Suggested donation is $10.

Mark you calendars for May 17, your full breakfast will be ready, and one of our faithful volunteers will take your order and bring it to the table. Yum! Yum! Door opens at the Lanark Village Boat Club at 9 a.m. Your donation of $5 will be collected at the door.

Later on Saturday, you can enjoy the evening at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82 and join in the May Birthday Bash. Party starts at 6 p.m. Fun starts when you come through the door.

Donít forget about covered dish Sunday, May 18. Doors open at Chillas Hall at 12:30 p.m. Chow line forms at 1 p.m. Bring a dish to share, your donation and your growling stomach and enjoy the afternoon with friends and neighbors. Hope you can make it!

Be kind to one another, and remember, God gave each of us one mother. Love her and cherish her.

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