From The Desk Of The Executive Director

image of tulipsThis spring certainly has lived up to the saying “April showers bring May flowers.” We have had the showers, now I’m waiting for those May flowers!

As we welcomed spring, it was so nice to see everyone for our first Friends & Family event of the year, our St. Patrick’s Day brunch on March 17th. What fun to see so many people having a great time! Thank you to everyone who helped to make it a special day.

Now that we’re beginning to have some warmer days here and there, it’s a great time to make use of our outdoor spaces – and watch those flowers start to spring up! When a mild day comes along, I love to see people enjoying the spring breezes under the portico and on the patio.

I also look forward to seeing you at our next event, our open house on April 13th. Rumor has it the Easter Bunny will be hopping by for photos!
