May Flowers

April Showers have certainly brought the rain storms in the last few days and promise to continue into May and thankfully the water levels are getting closer to normal with less than an inch below normal,  we can almost attach our floating dock.   

We are excited to bring some more great draws and contests to you once again this month.  Make sure you enter the Mothers Day contest if you haven't already.

We're seeing lots of property movements, so if you have a new neighbour please direct them to our website, get them to sign up for this newsletter and let us know too.  We will be doing welcome baskets again this year as soon as it's safe to get out and shop for them.   We normally make 15 welcome baskets a year but as we missed last year we'll be doing 30 this year.  If you have 30 things to donate please give me a wave.
