Please send in your contributions for the May Courier by Thursday, April 20th, 9 pm.
The theme for May is “CHANGE” – in honor of the 3rd ,4th, 5th graders who have been working all year to answer the question: “What makes someone a leader of change?” Thanks to their teacher, Sara Spiers, they will be writing about it for the May Courier!
I hope some of you will be inspired to address “Change” as reflected in your lives, such as change in seasons, feelings, lifestyle, technology, attitudes, abilities, history, leadership, family, health, etc., as well as changing the world to be a better place for all.
Heads up: Janie Kesselman, my Alter-Editor, (and Courier Proofreader) will be producing the June issue while I take a month’s break. She will be sending out the Call for Submissions around May 10th and will communicate with you using this same email address. My unending gratitude to Janie!
Thanks also to all who came out for The Courier’s 20th Anniversary Celebration April 1st. Nearly 60 people came, toasted, and looked over the 20 years of Highlights on the timeline wall. These will be left up for a bit longer, if you want to drop by the Community Center to see them.
Take care, Shirley
