     It was soooo exciting to be able to walk outside yesterday (April 1) without my snow boots, overcoat and gloves.  Dare I say that spring may actually be here?  Yup...and now starts the rainy season, when I discover my shoes leak, my hair frizzes and my septic is full.  Yes, spring has sprung!  The good news is this rain is going to wash away all that horrible salt and grime from my car (yay- it is silver again!) and create a rainbow of colors for us to enjoy.  It will be too beautiful to stay inside...unless of course you plan to attend our semi-annual Genealogy for Night Owls on Friday, April 17 from 5:30 P.M. to midnight.  THAT EVENT will be inside the KHCPL-Main Library where we will be dry and cozy in the Genealogy Local History Department.  This is an after-hours research evening designed for experienced genealogists.   There is a small fee for the event which allows you to  enjoy a scrumptious buffet dinner, evening snacks and door prizes.

  • Members of the Howard County Genealogical Society fee:  $16.00
  • Non-members fee:  $18.00    

       Call the Genealogy Department  (626-0838) right now to secure your spot.

    And in case you didn't notice....being a member of the Howard County Genealogical Society has it's perks.  If you haven't renewed your membership for 2015, now is the time to do it.  For $15 a year you get a quarterly newsletter (value: $12);  discounts on Night Owl programs (value: $4 per person) AND monthly business meetings with educational programs relating to genealogy, as well as refreshments and door prizes! (value:  priceless).    

I'll close for the month with the same thing I started with.....a picture of April!  This April is my granddaughter, and I just had to include her in this blog because it is, after, April!!!!!!
