May 2009 




Very busy month-Memorial Day, college graduations, many, many family activities!  Enjoy your month!

APRIL 2009

We made our own herbal "gardens".  Yes, our own herb pot!  Are we still in the 70's? 

Have you ever cooked with fresh herbs?  Food tastes COMPLETELY different when you add your own herbs.  (Yes the legal ones!) I'm famous for killing plants, but for some reason, I do really well with herbs-must be the eating part.


March, 2009 

Welcome to all of our Colt sisters!

Liz Grey  graciously offered her home for a Potluck Social in February.  We had some great munchies and even better company!  Nice seeing some new faces!  

 See if you  recognize these ladies!






We are planning quarterly get togethers.     Please contact Carol Lee Vandervelden for more info. 



June 2009
