Special to the Reporter

We hope everyone had a nice Easter holiday.† We had our annual Easter egg hunt at the Citizenís Center on Thursday.† Zula Hunter and Alice Lance had the baskets with the most eggs.† Hunting eggs is always fun no matter what your age.

April 18-24 is National Volunteer Week and we want to extend our gratitude to all the wonderful volunteers who give their time and talents at the Center.

We will be celebrating an almost forgotten holiday this year on April 30. Anybody remember Arbor Day? Founded officially by J. Sterling Morton in 1872, Arbor Dayís focus is the planting and caring for trees. We would like everyone to bring some plants or seeds to exchange that day. (Like the Christmas cookie exchange.)† Maybe you have some bulbs or plants that need thinning out, or some seeds from last yearís plantings, or you can bring new plants or seeds you would like to exchange. It should be a fun time and our yards and gardens will be all the more interesting and the air a little cleaner for it.

AARP Tax service representatives are still available on Wednesdays through April 7 for freetax preparation. You do not have to be a senior citizen, but you do need to call the Center to schedule an appointment with one of the representatives.

We have been enjoying the plays and musical performances at the Granbury Opera and Cleburne Plaza this year and we have

several new shows scheduled for April and May; On April 10 itís Steel Magnolias in Cleburne, on April 24 Seven Brides for Seven Brothers in Cleburne and on April 30 Nobody Sings Sad Songs in Granbury.

On May 21 The Day the Music Died is playing in Granbury.† If you are interested in attending any or all of these performances, come by the Citizenís Center and sign up.† The cost is $9 for Cleburne and $10 for Granbury.†

Donít forget to join us for our monthly blue grass and gospel music on April 20. Doors open at 6 p.m.† Bring your acoustic instruments and a covered dish and join us for the meal at 7 p.m.

Anyone needing utility assistance? We have a representative from the Palo Pinto Utility Assistance program here on the first Wednesday of the month. She will be here on April 7 from 10 a.m. to noon. We also have Food Stamp applications for anyone who might need them and we can assist with filling out the forms.
