Hello, Friends and Neighbors! FINALLY, spring is here and, boy, am I glad. With the nasty weather we had this March; many of those that usually attend all of our events have been missing in action. I hope that everyone is safe and well and that we will see participation increase, especially with all of our new residents. We heartily welcome those who have just joined The Spinney at Van Dyke family and encourage you to take advantage of all we have to offer. I also want to thank those of you who have sent me suggestions and you will see that I have included them in this month’s events. Remember to RSVP to any events you will attend!

MONDAYS @ 10 AM and TUESDAYS @ 6 PM are Librarian’s hours to accept books and magazines.
