President's Message - May 2017

The weather was beautiful for our annual GHCC Children’s Easter Egg Hunt. We have a new Easter bunny this year, DWK’s Corry Rogerson. I’m told he has been perfecting his Easter bunny voice. Thank you, Corry!

And thank you to Bethany Jorgenson of Shore Woods who organized this fun event and to Fred & Jo Nelson who built the straw pile and filled it with coins and candy for the older kids to find. Bethany and her family, Eglon’s Pat DuVall and a large crew stuffed about 3000 plastic eggs. Judy Tallman and Connie Gordon also worked hard to make this a fun event.

The Eglon Easter egg hunt was a big success, too, thanks to the efforts of Jackie Holbrook and her helpers. About 50 kids collected colorful “eggs” filled with candy and little toys.

GHCC will be doing a Cinco de Mayo dinner for the first time. Chef Chuck Strahm and his sous chef, Rick Mackey, will be serving a delicious enchilada dinner. Mexican beers will be served. Pat DuVall’s has created the perfect dessert. Don’t miss it! Tickets are going fast. Many thanks to the Hansville Grocery for selling the tickets.

Speaking of the Hansville Grocery, check out the Hansgrill dinner specials served Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. The dinners have been a big hit.

Celia Grether and Annette Wright continue to find interesting speakers and presentations for the monthly Neighbors Lunches and Annette’s “Talking About…” lecture series.
