Come to our Humboldt Park 4th of July Association meeting on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, at 7 pm in the park pavilion. We have a great need for new members and volunteers who can help us plan this year's Independence Day celebration. This is a day for the entire family to enjoy at Humboldt Park. We have a full day of activities planned for then. We new input and ideas to carry us forward into the future. We are getting old, and hope that more people with ideas can come forward to help us. You are all invited to join us at 7 pm in the park pavilion on Wednesday evening. Please consider giving us a little of your time and efforts. Prepare us for the ongoing celebration and for future ones. You are very welcome to attend our meetings.
Let us hope that warm weather comes our way soon. Easter will soon be here. Now is a good time to go to church during Lent. We must never forget our faith. We should worship as we have been taught. To each his own path. Have a wonderful Spring and pray for warm weather soon.
I want to wish a Happy birthday to may sister, Kay Mattson, in Texas. You have reached a milestone, the great 76. I hope that will enjoy your birthday and do whatever pleases you the most. When you decide to move to Illinois, please let us know. We are thinking about you and hope that you are happy and doing well. Happy birthday, Kay.
As soon as the ground dries up a bit, maybe grass and flowers can grow again. Now the grass is awfully wet and muddy. It is better to be patient and wait for warmer weather to begin our Spring season. The dogs love the warmer weather as they no longer have to walk in the snow to get anywhere. It will be nice when real Spring finaaly arrives here. It won't be long before softball games begin and tennis and basketball games are played outdoors again. Evening volleyball games are fun at certain taverns. If it gets warm enough, the beer gardens will reopen to the public again. The Milwaukee Brewers will begin their baseball season soon. At least we have an indoor stadium. Well, let's hope that the real Spring comes soon.
