Dear Cousin,

 

The Mayapples have popped their umbrellas completely open to shelter from the surging April rains that keep coming down. The abundant rainfall is bringing out the leaves on the trees more every day, so that Pilot Knob is beginning to look lush and green once more. A brisk wind whips the long branches of the weeping willow to and fro today, and the purple blossoms of the lilac wave in the breeze. Their fragrant scent is wafted across the yard, telling of springtime and warm...

I want to thank Anthony Wayne Area Council and everyone responsible for presenting me with the Council Patch. I love scouting but on a lower level than a lot of people.

MORNING BLESSINGS

 

When you awake in the morning, before putting coffee, toast, or anything into your body, get a tall glass of water. Go outside, face the East, and say:

Pleasant Center’s Pride and Joy - Rocket Park Opens - Go Rockets!

They did it! What started out as merely an idea only a year ago is now a reality. Thanks to the hard work, Pleasant Center Elementary PTA and many volunteers, they now are the proud owners of Phase I of a new playground, Rocket Park. This is the first time in over 25 years that the playground has been updated.

The PTA decided that it would be a good idea to first paint the existing equipment to give it a fresh look. A couple of workdays, and a little elbow grease and a lot of red, white...
