By Lois Lumbra — NO FOOLING, you folks are lucky to get a column this week, I had one all done earlier in the day, and when I high-lighting to copy and send from word into my email, so I could send to the Courier, it went off my screen. That is not the first time this has happened there is a way I suppose I could have got it back, but what little I know about a computer, it was gone. I felt like kicking my computer right out the door..BUT didn’t want a broken foot. Anyhow I have settled down and hope this comes out okay.
So here I go again. This past week was Holy Week and many churches held specials. Our Church the United Methodist held a Maundy Thursday Service with our Pastor Bonnie Hovermann leading. We first held a pot-luck supper with each person bringing something to share. Then we re-enacted the Lords Last Supper with scripture and prayers ending with Communion. Then Friday there was an Ecumenical Good Friday Service at the Enosburg United Methodist Church, with local Clergy taking part with their program “Nails Of The Cross” they are Nails of Pride, Betrayal, Envy, Indecision, Cruelty and Hatred, all with scripture readings, prayers and hymns. Today 4/1 our Easter Service entitled “Celebrating The Miracle Of Easter,” with Pastor Bonnie Hovermann message “The Greatest Event Ever Told.”
Mary Tryhorne accompanied her husband Matt on a business trip to So. Carolina. It was not all business the couple had many nice places to go and enjoy. Their daughters Adeline and Laurel stayed with their grandparents David and Sally Tryhorne in Enosburg, for the few days their parents were away.
Sandy Bowman had returned home after a short visit with her son Joshua Potvin and Grandson.
4/1.. Randy and Stacey St.Onge and Trevor and Jodi Walker had an Easter Egg hunt for their Children and other children from the Neighborhood come to the property of Lorraine St.Onge, as her lawn was all cleared of snow. The Children all had a great time. Lorraine arrived home late this afternoon from Florida, where she goes to get away from the Vermont Cold Winters.

An elderly woman angrily jumped out of her car after a fender bender with another car. “Why can’t people ever watch where they are going!” she shouted wildly. ” You’re the fourth car I’ve hit this week.”
This will be all for now… Just Hope Everyone Had a Wonderful Easter. God Bless us All!!
