April is peak wildflower viewing in our area, so we are planning a wildflower drive down Hwy 281 to Marble Falls and maybe take a different route back. We have a few side excursions in the works also. If you are interested, we will be going on Saturday, April 24th and you can sign-up at the Center.

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.

The winners of last week’s “42” Tournament were Royce Stacey & Clark Stewart with an all-time Center high score of 65. In 2nd place was the team of Marcy Copell & Janelle Gartrell. The 3rd place team was Floyd Flanary & Dortha Beck and 4th place went to Loveda Swaim & Grady May. Other players in the tournament were: Eddie & Billie Flanary, James Kelley & Don Baker, Pat Thompson & Leta McKnight, Dorothy Jo Osborn & Ila Verne Stull, Zula Hunter & Cora Harkins and Ann Parham & Trey Welch. Thanks to Mary Baker for setting up and officiating the tournament.

The Center will be hosting a seminar “Adapting to Vision Changes” on April 2 at 12:45 p.m. Our speaker will be bringing samples of various adaptive equipment for those with low or no vision. She will also be providing information and assistance on how to acquire these items. If you or someone you know has vision problems, please join us. There will be door prizes during the seminar.

We will be celebrating an almost forgotten holiday this year on April 30.  Anybody remember Arbor Day?  We would like everyone to bring some plants or seeds to exchange that day. (Think Christmas cookie exchange.)  Maybe you have some bulbs or plants that need thinning out, or some seeds from last year’s 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.

We have been enjoying the plays and musical performances at the Granbury Opera House and Cleburne Plaza this year and we have several new shows scheduled for April and May; On April 24th we will be seeing 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 Citizen’s Center and sign up.  The cost is $9.00 for Cleburne and $10.00 for Granbury. 

Don’t forget to join us for our monthly blue grass and gospel music on Tuesday, April 20th (3rd Tuesday of the month).   Doors open at 6:00 p.m.  Bring your acoustic instruments and a covered dish and join us for the meal at 7:00 p.m.

Activities at the Citizen’s Center beginning on April 19th are: “42”, Wii games and exercise class on Monday; needlework, ceramics and bluegrass/potluck on Tuesday; health screening, Clark Cole, Mr. Rotan and “42” Tournament on Wednesday; exercise and David’s grocery shopping on Thursday; bingo, quilting and Brookshire’s grocery shopping on Friday.  Besides the scheduled activities, there are “42” games, puzzles, quilting and visiting going on every day. 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Mygnonne Thomas and James Holloway.

Get well wishes go out to Veda Gosdin and Vanessa Metker who have been ill.
