Homemakers welcoming spring's flora and fauna

Easter brunch

Spring is here with the daffodiles blooming, birds singing and the frogs croaking.

Just a reminder for clubs members to get their dues and list of officers to the county treasurer by May 1. I will have a report on International Night and the cultural arts display in next weeks column.

When we think of Easter coming soon we are always thinking of what I can prepare to eat. What about an Easter Brunch. I am including some recipes you may want to try for something different.
