If your children will be participating, be sure to bring wrapped candy or hard boiled eggs to Hanger Hall before the hunt begins. We understand that the Easter Camel will make an appearance.  P.S.

The Few, The Proud, the Hard Workers!
Windows were cleaned, exit lights checked, furniture polished, and these are just a few of the tasks that were accomplished on our Spring Cleanup Day at Jubilee! on Saturday, April 8th. We would like to express our appreciation to the following folks who donated their time and labor…Anne Wray, John & Kathy Busse, Pat Polansky, Jeff Peisner, Ronnie Sweeton, Don Fortuna and  Ray Raymond from the Board and Operations Team who coordinated.

Come Get Your Stuff
…It’s gonna go away soon!
Following our cleanup efforts we became aware of the great volume of pans and dishes that have piled up in our kitchen.  Most of these were left behind following Room in the Inn.  So… give it some thought and if you remember bringing food in one of your dishes and if you can’t find it now, please check in our kitchen.  It might be there.
