Wintry Hibernation

Winter has been hard on our storytelling organization. The first 12 days of January never went above freezing. Snow covered the ground and with frigid temperatures, we cancelled Old Christmas. 

We then tried to put together a fundraiser by the end of January to raise money for the Haitian earthquake survivors, but couldn't get enough members on such short notice to perform.

So, here we are almost halfway through February with no event planned. G. Lee has suggested that everyone work on creating stories so when we come back together, we'll be ready to go.

The latest weather report says that a storm made up of cold temps and high winds is on its way, so I don't think it's time for the bears to come out of their dens yet.

See you when it warms up!  

February and March Birthdays

Members who have birthdays in February are:
Judy Butterfly (Feb. 12)
Mary Grace Walrath (Feb. 22)

Members who have birthdays in March are:
Rocky Rockwell (March 4)
Chris Vickers (March 13)
Glen Williams (March 30)

A special observance for Rocky Rockwell's 80th birthday is a card shower. Everyone who knows Rocky is invited to send him a card on or around March 4. Optional is an added personal greeting, a memory, or an anecdote. This is a surprise for Rocky and we hope his mailbox holds at least 80 cards! We are sure he will be heart-touched and probably embarrassed. Cards should be sent to 15301 Castle Yonder Lane, Bristol, VA 24202. Please do not send an email card since his poor vision prevents him from enjoying his computer.

Please remember the other members also.    Mimi
