From the Desk of The President – March, 2014
We’re finally starting to see signs that winter might end. The ice in the fishpond has melted enough that the fish are actually visible. It’s been a couple of months since that was the case. The snow seems easier to take when it melts the next day.
Becky Martinez will be our presenter for March, and will talk about plotting a mystery. In addition she will raffle off a month of mentoring (must be present to win) as well as a basket of goodies. It looks to be a lot of fun.
Since the Virginia Village library is unavailable for the summer months, we’d like to consider having a social event in August instead of a normal meeting. Any ideas are more than welcome. The after meeting lunches are always wonderful opportunities to sit and chat with people you don’t see very often. Stay tuned for future developments.
The Molly and Aspen Gold will begin to accept entries in April. Please contact Janet Baltz if you are able to help with the Aspen Gold, or Kathy Matzen if you can help with the Molly. If we can get a couple of people to do one or two categories it is not too difficult.
Our Book In A Week loop is active again. It’s a great way to set a reasonable goal and announce it to people so you have a bit of ‘inspiration’ to get it done. It’s kind of like arranging to meet a friend at the gym. Even if you don’t really want to go work out, someone is expecting you, so you make more of an effort. Contact Maggi if you want to join us.
Thank you to everyone who makes this group work so well. You might not always hear the thanks, but your efforts are appreciated.
We’ll see everyone at the Virginia Village library on March 15.
Enjoy the writing!
HODRW President 2014
