Spring issue is ready

Spring is in the air - some of the time.  Green shoots are starting to appear and buds forming on the trees.  Snow patches are dwindling and the days are definitely longer.
I hope you'll enjoy reading the April/May issue of the Look at Lakeside newsletter.
This issue has a good number of dates of events that you can attend in Lakeside - from a spring carnival for youth, to a gathering of seniors and a local history film on Seven Bridges Road.  You'll also get to read about efforts to grow more milkweed for Monarch butterflies, view a list of eating establishments, and be introduced to a couple new massage places in the neighborhood.

I'm doing a call out for information on church organs or church bells in the local churches.
With reading this issue you'll also meet the current president of the Lakeside Lester Park Community Club and learn about an interesting past history bit to raise money for orphans in Belgium by Lakeside folk.

Thanks for being a reader.  Feel free to share a photo, celebration announcements, or even wildlife photo - or even your thoughts on what you'd like to see in Lakeside.  The next deadline is May 14.

I appreciate the renewing and new subscribers.  Please support and thank the advertisers in this publication.

Spring melt / snow storm / games inside

Snow is turning to water and rushing down the storm drains.  The leftover sand sits along the road side.  There's less ice now and the snowmen are down to little bumps.  Will we have more snow?  Sure.  March is a fair game time for more.   A few more times of skiing will be out there.

One thing we can do come winter, spring, or summer is gather indoors, is play games.

Come support Circle of Hope, a local breast cancer financial support group, for a fun game on Sunday, March 13 at the Lakeside Lester Park Community Club.  I'll go over the simple playing rules for this old-time dice game and we'll have a fun afternoon playing.  There will be prizes, too.
Suggested donation is $10.  Please RSVP to wendyupnorth@yahoo.com.  Age 7 and older welcome.  It's a fun community game.  Game time is 3 p.m. on March 13.
