We had some interesting sessions during the
month of March. First, Dr Jim Belanger
presented a talk on taking
care of your pets during the winter months. He talked about the do’s and
don’t’s of what your winter-bound pets really need, especially paying attention
to their diet and dental health. We then had Madelyn Monahan present her “bio.”
What an interesting and event filled life she has been living. Finally, Bill
DeFeo presented a detailed
explanation about antique clocks. He talked about how they work and the
craftsmanship that created these wonderful old time masterpieces. Finally,
Nancy Bell set about arranging a “chocolate” trip, to take place in May. I
believe just about all the seats are already taken. Looks like we have a bunch
of “chocolate lovers”!
The business meeting was held of 31 March 2011.
As an added bonus, several members took
advantage of the AARP Safe Driving Class that was held here at the “Barn.”
