Latest from Vale Club's President:  
Looking forward to spring!

 

LET’S LOOK FORWARD TO SPRING BUT LET’S NOT RUSH… It hasn’t been a bad winter by any means but I think we all look forward to longer days and lots of warm sun. I think the year is already going too fast so I don’t mean to rush it but welcome spring on March 19!!

We are planning the spring schoolhouse yard clean-up and shed clean-out in April. As soon as the final date has been set, everyone will be informed. It will get a great way for those who still need volunteer hours to get that accomplished. If you can’t make it, maybe your spouse can and that would serve your volunteer commitment. We don’t think it will take more than a Saturday morning. Congratulations to the Chile Cook-off team—Sue Bowers and Ann Marquis—for another successful event that raises funds to help support the maintenance of the schoolhouse. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped make Sue and Ann’s job a little easier and a big congrats to Pam Light for winning “best chili name” and Jim Strickler for “best chili.” The chili cook-off raised over $1000.
It also featured our first auction item which is still open for bidding—a lovely day boating down the Potomac River on Charlene and Tom Willess’ boat with lunch. More auction items to come so stay informed!! Hey if you are interested in a Vale Club cookbook for free, wear your Vale Club apron to the March 10 general meeting. We’ll give everyone wearing an apron a raffle ticket and make a drawing. Don’t have an apron? No problem. Call or email Susan Wrigley and purchase one for $20. You will also have the opportunity to purchase an apron at the March 10 meeting. Much more to look forward to so don’t forget to check the club calendar!!

Warm wishes,
Pam Guffain Vale Club President
