Our March 14 meeting of the Hilltowns Seniors was held at the White Church on the Hill, the Berne Reformed Church. 66 seniors enjoyed a corned beef and cabbage dinner with all the trimmings.

It was delicious as always, and we thank you so much for your hospitality. It was mentioned that all the seniors were in the kitchen, so maybe we should treat them sometime.

The sunshine committee reported that Fran Brezenski had taken a tumble, but she was back with us today. Also, Millie Rossman is home with pneumonia. We wish her a speedy recovery. 

We extend our sympathy to the family of Jerry Miller who passed away while spending the winter months in Florida. He and his wife, Bert, were members and he was also the son-in-law of Frances Miller.

Birthday greetings were song to Fran Brezenski, Bob Porter, Scott Wright, Elsie Wilms, Ed Wood, and Don McDermott. Also, a happy anniversary to Fred and Elsie Wilms and Peg and Ernie Crawford.

Elsie reminded us that membership dues are due at the April meeting and to bring your patience. You are going to be asked to fill out new information cards. Dues are $5 with great benefits.

The anniversary committee reported that our dinner will be held at Maple on the Lake. This will be held the first Sunday in June. More information to follow.

Comment

I'm going to retire and live off my savings. What I'll do the second day, I have no idea.
