    The nice weather we have experienced this past week seems to be the topic of conversation every place you go. People are out walking their dogs, taking the little ones out for a stroll, walking for their health, riding bikes or ATVs, or trying out their skills on skate boards. Everywhere you look the grass is being trimmed, bushes are being clipped, and the new buds are finally emerging from dormancy. The trees are beginning to show new leafs and the freshly planted crops in the fields are sprouting. All varieties of garden birds can be seen flitting in and out of the trees and bushes, stopping at the bird feeders for a few snacks and gathering small amounts of soft materials to build their nests.

    This past week Tom and Georgia Robinson of Marvin Hill welcomed home their son, Tom Jr., from his latest deployment to the Middle East. Tom Jr., is an Army reservist and a member of Post 905. He has been called up several times since the conflict in the Middle East began so many years ago. Welcome home Tom and we look forward to seeing you very soon.
    The Springwater GALA Committee is now meeting every two weeks as they gear up for this years’ festivities entitled the “Podunk Pig Party. The next meeting is scheduled for May 16 at 7:00 p.m. at the Springwater American Legion. Volunteers are still needed for the three days of fun, food, and crafts. There will be something for everyone, beginning with a street dance on Friday evening. Last year Mother Nature cooperated nicely for this annual festival and we hope this year will be just as nice .
    The combined Sheriff/Legion memorial service for Keith V. Clayson is scheduled for Saturday, May 18, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. at the Springwater American Legion, 7998 School Street. Pastor Regina Shaw, Websters Crossing UMC, will officiate and members from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office will also pay tribute to him. Clayson was the last Chief Deputy in the LCSO before he retired in 1983. He served for 25+ years and after retirement, continued to work part-time for special events. He also served in the U.S. Army during World War II. Family, friends, former neighbors and colleagues are invited to attend these services. A luncheon will follow at the Legion. If you would like to assist with the luncheon or donate food items, contact Pat Willsea, President of the Ladies Auxiliary Post 905, at 669-2376 or 728-5552.
    May 18 is also the Chicken and Biscuit fundraiser at the Conesus Legion, Post 1779, on Marshall Rd., This fundraiser is hosted by the Ladies Auxiliary of Post 1779 and funds raised are used for their special projects. The dinner runs from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. and takeouts are available.
    Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching and I hope everyone will come out on Saturday to pick up flowers or baked goods at the Springwater-Websters Crossing Historical Society’s fundraiser at their museum next to the Springwater Quik Stop on S. Main Street.
    Page 2 of 2 - There will be flowers(annuals and perennials) locally grown for a reasonable fee, yard art, and baked goods. Spend a few minutes checking out the museum while you are there. Some of the exhibits offer a real “step back” in time and reflect nicely on the earlier times of our towns’ history. The doors open at 10:00 a.m.
    Have a great Mother’s Day and a good week. Be kind to one another.
