This Week@39 Serenity Place

Hi Everybody,

Its true... Spring is no longer around the corner, Its here! That means Spring cleaning at the Clubhouse. Especially this year. We need volunteers !!

Last week we delivered two car loads of clothing for free distribution . This week we have arranged for someone to pick up the rest of the clothing and everything in the store plus all of the Christmas decorations to distribute to families. This is just the beginning. On to Step 3 ..... the Craft supplies. For all you crafters out there, we will be setting up most of the craft supplies for anyone who wants them If you want to make a small donation for whatever you take... feel free but it is not required. Thanks to Michelle P. and Sue L. who hauled everything downstairs and to Sara M, Thomas K, and Tina C. who did the hard part and carried all the Christmas decorations down from the attic! Thanks . It is hard work so we are looking for a new crew this week to help out. All we need is an hour and half of your time whenever you are available ..... I'm sure we can get John F. (all the way from Maine) So who to wants to work with John? Update: 60 percent of the way cleaned out. Please help us get over the finish line. Thomas K brought down 15 boxes from the attic but there is more to carry down. Then we need people to go through the boxes because we have people lined up to take the stuff away. Thanks Thomas.

This Sunday many of us are travelling to Pennsylvania for the Woman's Retreat. The dinner will go on though. Thanks to Heidi A. She is cooking potato/corn soup and chicken salad sandwiches. All we need now is dessert, including ice cream .Thanks Heidi A. Maybe we can bring up the chairs and set up the tables for people to eat outside. Don't forget about the Saturday Noon NA Mtg. With the warmer weather most people don't want to stay inside and watch a movie, but you never know!!

Last Sunday Karen M volunteered to do the Sunday Dinner after the 1pm AA Mtg.. Chicken and Biscuits was on the menu. . I know we had one box of cookies and ice cream. there was a card game of ... yes Gaeton R and Danny L along with Char B and Karen M. Sue L delivered food and cleaned up what little we had to do thanks to Karen M. The crowd dispersed early ... it was just to nice to stay inside. WE are most likely not going to see much of Ice Cream Steve now that the weather is nicer. He is trying to recruit an Ice Cream person while he is away... any takers. He is even willing to temporarily give up his title!!

Easter Sunday we had a huge Easter Dinner for about 36 people ( which didn't include take outs) The Eater Bunny showed up and thanks to Jim R. we had peeps for everyone and chocolate bunnies too. Thanks Jim R and Anonymous Easter Bunny. There was also an Easter Egg Hunt and tour surprised lots of people participated. Heidi A, Sylvie M., and Lois J. all found the bunnies and got a bag of candy for a reward. So much sugar!! Thanks to everyone who brought food: Sue L cooked a ham, scalloped potatoes, carrots and sweet potatoes, ( Michelle P. peeled all the potatoes and carrots) , Heidi A made a great Mac , Char B. brought green bean casserole that was gone in a flash, Sara M brought a coleslaw, there was a veggie tray, Karen M. sent a cheese and cracker tray, Lois J brought rolls, and Carol H brought baked beans. And Willie M returned with his awesome salad !!!Again we ate it all!!! And then the desserts were plentiful. In addition to the Ice Cream from both Ice Cream Steve and Sylvie M. Delma W. made delicious cupcakes, Pat brought Cookies, and Peter made my favorite.. rice pudding cups! Thanks to everyone who contributed to the feast. Also a huge thanks to Michelle P and Lois J for cleaning the bathrooms, setting up the buffet tables, stocking the water and hiding the easter eggs. Also to Sue L. Carol H, Delma W. and Carl for cleaning up . Yes there was a card game with several players sitting down at some point in the day. Welcome back Eddie for the Half Way House and Jason. It was great to see both of you

m sure there will be a card game if Gaeton R and Danny L have anything to do with it. We received another wonderful donation from Jacob M's Mom. A Huge box of puzzles and a big basket of Hot Chocolate and Marshmallows. How did she know that is popular at the Clubhouse!! thankyou for always thinking of us Jacob's Mom. By the ay, great to see you return Amanda K. & Caitlyn S. Its nice to se both of you back at the clubhouse . Caitlyn has even volunteered to do next Sundays meal with Karen M. Thanks for jumping right in . I think pulled pork might be on the menu.... stay tuned. Also, Karen M, Carl, and Char B cleaned the Community Center Stove and area around the stove and for a donation to the clubhouse. Thanks Karen for always finding us work to do so we can afford the new location and thank-you to the members who are helping earn that money. Finally, Pat S. has tons of ideas for fundraising so we are forming a committee. If you want o be part of the planning committee let us know. Thanks for spearheading that Pat. Danny L. has always said if our Higher Power wants the Clubhouse to remain open. Opportunities will present itself to help us. We have really been blessed this last couple of months. Thanks to everyone working hard to make our new location a reality. Glad you are out of the hospital Willie M. and Kenny B. More next week........
