One day it is hot the next day it is cold, but I guess that is typical of spring. I guess this is “Dogwood winter” They are in full bloom at this time. I know as I grew up there were always a series of so called winters, before the weather usually settled to a more regular temperature, following Easter.
ORGANIZATION NEWS. The Cecilia Community Ruritan Club met for its regular monthly meeting Monday evening. The meeting was very well attended and we were happy to have as our special guests, Chester and Anna Hillard, from Ruritan National visit our club, from Frankfort. They told us of the many benefits of being a member of the National Ruritan. Many things are furnished to their clubs that are very helpful if we choose to take advantage of them, such as scholarships, liability insurance, discounts, etc. We also had as our guest speaker Senator Dennis Parrett, a Cecilia native, who just entered into the world of politics this past election, and is enjoying his work very much. The question at hand that was answered last evening by a 15 to 6 vote was should our club stay in association with the National Ruritan as members of its organization. It passed with better than two thirds wanting to remain, as we were organized 40 years ago as the Cecilia Community Ruritan Club.
The Cecilia Homemakers Club met for its regular meeting Tuesday with 23 members present and two visitors, Karen Birdwhistle and Tresia Crews. Tresia joined the club. Heidi McNutt came after lunch and showed us how to crochet a necklace. Debbie Mcqueary presented the lesson, “Military Families.” Sharon Bush was voted Homemaker of the Year and Julie McKinnley as Volunteer of the Year.
The May meeting will be held at the Cecilia Ruritan building starting at 9:30, because the Cecilia Baptist Church Fellowship Hall will be used as the voting precinct on that day. After a short meeting, the club will go to Hardinsburg Tea Room for lunch.
The Annual Homemakers Club meeting will be held this year in the fellowship hall of Cecilia Baptist Church, instead of at the Nolin RECC building as it has been for the past few years. The meeting is May 24 with registration beginning at 9:30 a.m.
CHURCH NEWS. Palm Sunday at College Heights was highlighted by the Children’s Choir marching in carrying palm leaves and singing a couple of songs for us.

HELPFUL HINT. Think that new prescription isn’t agreeing with you? Does your doctor know all the other medication you are taking? Perhaps what is disagreeing with you is mixing drugs together which aren’t compatible. Be sure your doctor knows all you are taking, even if it is only over the counter drugs.
