February Weekend Events: Into the Winter Groove 2/26-28

February is almost over and we seem to be into some kind of Winter Groove. Getting over the Shock of all of the snow that we have had, watching it melt, and now waiting for the next round of winter weather to arrive…And, yes, there’s more coming…I think that we are learning how to move forward and still accomplish activities on our checklist of Things to Get Done! So let’s think ahead to warmer days, get involved in helping our fellow man, and save our memories to look back upon.
