Thank you all for making our Sweethearts’ Dinner a wonderful success. Especially, all that helped by bringing our beloved Ladies – thank you so much!

We had a wonderful dinner, prepared by our own cooking team – Angela and Gregg. The home-baked bread was outstanding, and so was the Stuffed Pork.

One thing to mention on the dinners: we still are struggling getting reservations in on time. Please try to avoid making us guess and over-portion, and you being penalized.

We had a nice breather with Presidents’ Day, and now will have to go on for a while, except for the unofficial one: St. Patrick’s Day. We promise: No green beer! We will have a very nice dinner for you at our March Stated Meeting which will be a Mardi Gras Theme even though it will be a little past the real date!

Speaking of which, Lent starts on February 26th this year.   A Christian tradition that lasts six weeks and leads us to Easter, and is meant to rejuvenate us physically and mentally. Some practice diet, but there is a spiritual component to it that asks everyone to think about the actions we took, good and bad, and prepare our thinking towards rejuvenation, and the never ending cycle of birth, life, death and resurrection that we will find with Spring, to load with fresh energy for the year.

I hope to see you all at our March Stated Meeting,
