Young At Heart

By Jack Kintner

Happily we welcome April in,
with all its eager dance of spring.
Let cold and grayness slip away,
Letting April do her boisterous fling.
She brings showers but also flowers,
And gleefully welcomes days of May.

Our Blaine Senior center certainly does look forward to the sunshiny warmer days along with the many outdoor activities, which they bring. There will be outings, gardening, bocce ball, and picnics for sure. Hurray for spring!
