Dear Friends:

Spring is truly on the way!  The landscapers are all over, putting the finishing touches on our soon to be blooming gardens!  Our little neck of the woods looks great, as usual, and the benches and chairs have been set up by Brian, so we are ready to enjoy the view.

Thanks so much to all of you that helped to make our "Paint the Town Red" fundraiser a success.  Even though the dates were changed and lots of people were unable to attend, we ended up raising just about the same amount as last year.  Thanks to Mary for heading up the committee, to Bill for single handedly moving the tables and artwork(as well as dish duty), and to Joan for her help in making the set up and flow of the evening go as smoothly as possible.  Thanks to all the folks that volunteered throughout the evening, and of course to all those that contributed some of the best gifts we have had.  It just always seems to work out, so hopefully we will have the opportunity to do it again next year!

We currently have three empty rooms.  We would love to fill them up, so please keep us in mind for those who may be looking for a great housing option!  Right now there is a room on the first floor with a full bath that is available, it was just renovated, and it is a beautiful spot.  We also have two rooms on the second floor with half-baths, both are very nice rooms.  We do anticipate Mary Browne returning for a month this summer.  We have spoken a few times on the phone, and she is looking forward to  being back on Nantucket and at The Homestead.

In April we celebrated Lucy Murray's birthday on the 16th, and Bill Rowland's on the 21st, same year I'll have you know!  Also, coming up in May are Alexandra Punnett on the 4th, and Jane Manning on the 10th, also both joining Bill and Lucy with the same birth year!  Not with the same birth year, but joining the May ladies, are Jennifer Killen on the 5th, and Jennifer Anderson on the 30th!  Happy birthday wishes to everyone!

The carpeting is down and it looks amazing.  There are some finishing touches we need to take care of, but it is all coming together nicely!  The painting crew of Pioneer Cleaning was fabulous, and the Marine Home Center installation crew did a great job as well.  Now, we could use some fresh artwork if anyone is cleaning out or some ideas about picture placement from someone that has a talent for that.  Please let me know!

Enjoy your Daffodil weekend!
