March arrived right on Time!
I don't know about you but I had such a good time with the snow last month! (Let's NOT talk about the rain that followed, however )After shoveling enough to get from the house to the street, I got out my cross-country skis and skied around the neighborhood - in plenty of time before the salt truck arrived to ruin my "course." See the photo of me bundled up and ready for a wintry outing!
The Winter Festival was a great hit this year - as usual. Over $18,000 was raised and will be awarded to local non-profits. Many thanks to all of you who attended and made the weekend a great success!
Before I forget, I
am letting you know NOW that next month I will be asking you to help me
by filling out a simple survey form. I'm looking for ways to make NewHopePennsylvania.com
even more interesting and valuable to you, the visitors and readers!
