Apr. 2:   Are all your eggs in one basket?

May 7: Birds, Bees & Flowers

May 9:  10th  Annual Food & Plant Sale with Breakfast

On a warm, rainy evening, we held our Feb. meeting even though the weatherman predicted snow. We were lucky and got rain.

A few years ago, Old Lyme Grange turned in their Charter and sold the building to the historical society. It needed mega-remodeling.   Five (5) professionally accomplished tradesmen met every  Tuesday to take on this huge project. On January 27, at the annual meeting, these five were honored for all their work saving the town many thousands of dollars. Our Chaplain, Arthur “Skip” Beebe, was one of the men honored and they became Old Lyme’s Citizens of the Year. What a special honor. Congrats Skip!

Congrats also to Evan St. Louis, son of our Asst. Steward, Mary Powell St. Louis, becoming second son to earn the rank of Eagle Scout. It was finally decided to have our annual food and plant sale on May 9 from 8-1, the Saturday before Mother’s Day.  A breakfast will be served.  Come early, eat, and shop

for the best bargains.

Kathy Tefft, our Master, is experiencing bad foot problems. She barely recovered from surgery on one foot, now needs surgery on the other one. Her grandson, David Sanford, stepped up and performed the office of Master for her, and I might add, did a super dooper job!

All is peaceful in Lyme!
