Spring is in the air

---- — Hi everybody. Well as I write this I am looking at the latest snowfall, after days at 60-plus degree temperatures.

This week I have seen so many signs of spring like ducks, robins and many a newborn animal. I can only hope this means good things to come. We here are waiting for our newest additions of goat babies and will be glad to send them to new homes when they are ready. Anyone looking for a baby goat make sure to contact me at (641) 895-4022.

The Exline Permaculture Society will be having their first meeting of the year sometime in April, date to follow. If you’re interested in gardening or any other form of permaculture, consider joining this group.

The Royal Neighbor Spring dinner had a large turnout on Monday, March 10. Linda from the local crisis center was there to talk about changes in the organization and ask for used donations. She was presented with bears for the children in the program as well as Easter eggs and candy for the program they have.

Don’t forget that Saturday, March 15 the Royal Neighbors are gathering at the recreation center to sew for the Easter egg giveaways. The doors will be open at 10 a.m. for anyone to come join them. On March 17 they will also help serve meals for the Faith United Church supper.

Royal Neighbors also filled piggy banks for Empowering Women through the association in memory of Mirie Huston.

A few health reports; John Methany got good news about his cancer, Frieda is still getting tested for her illness and Wayne Exline was doing physical therapy.

Lastly the Spring Easter dinner will be held at the community center on April 6 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Everyone is welcome. They will be serving roast pork, chicken and meatloaf plus tons of sides salads and desserts. Mark your calendar to attend. The cost is $7 for the meal and they will also be selling Easter eggs as well.
