We are delighted to see the sun shining and hear the birds chirping!  Now is the time to be filling those bird feeders if you have not already!

Be sure to check out the April calendar and join us for some of the great activities Amy has planned for our branch. 

As always, if you have any suggestions for us please share them with us - we are always looking for new opportunities to keep us busy!

A few housekeeping issues that we could use your assistance with...

Please call the branch the day before when making a reservation to join us for a meal so we can plan accordingly.

Transportation - we do not always have our Howie (Bus) as we share it with our Ames branch.  If you are needing assistance in coordinating transportation we need as much notice as possible - thank you!

Rick officially joined the branch as our maintenance coordinator in 2013 but was helping out long before that when dropping his wife Lora off or picking her up for work.  Rick is always quick to lend a helping hand and has been busy recently assisting with the many improvements in the branch that go along with our renovation.
