It seems spring can’t make up its mind whether to come to stay, but we will enjoy each warm day.
Our yard was full of robins the other day, so I guess that is a good sign.
It seem there are plenty of things for the Homemakers to do. If you are planning to attend International Night April 7, your reservations need to be mailed to Barb Smiley by March 27.

Recently, 14 members attended the Spring District day hosted by Brown County extension Homemakers.
Speakers were State President Joanna Sell, State President-elect Marcia Dodge and State Vice President-elect, Jeannie Armett.
The Homemakers Conference will be June 11 to 13 at Purdue. Next year the conference will be held in Indianapolis.
Fall Retreat will be Sept. 17 and 18 at Camp Higher Ground. The theme this year is State Fair.
Each county decorated a gallon jar and the money collected went to cancer research. Our county’s won and will go to conference. It sounds like everyone had a very worthwhile day.
