I for one had a great day with family and friends with more festivities to come and trust that all of you experienced the same goodness that Easter and the coming of Spring brings to us. We do have an amazing lineup of events and activities that we want to share with you so please read along.

The special event this night is an Antiques discussion: Antique and Collectible Timepieces - Imre and Beatrice Szalai will focus on 19th Century American clocks. If antique hunting and collecting is your thing you might want to try this out. Imra is in house the whole night so I also assume the chess classes will be offered for the evening.
