From Where I Sit

Hello March!

On Tuesday, March 20th, Spring officially arrives . While it may not look like it or feel like, we're at least one step closer to warmer weather, gardens and all that comes with yard work.

If you've been here recently, you may have seen bathroom construction happening. The work is still being completed, but we're well on our way to brand spanking-new facilities throughout the building. Please pay attention to signs and directions as there are some significant changes as a result.

There is a City Council candidate race in our District and the two candidates running, Incumbent Steve Stocker and Challenger Chris Astrella will be here on March 22 for a candidate forum. Please plan to attend and be an informed voter. It will start at Noon in Cremer Auditorium.

We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the family of Diane Wiedenbeck of Cottage Grove. Diane passed away in late January and was the former president of the Village of Cottage Grove Board. She was a fierce advocate for the Colonial Club and senior services in general. When the board wanted to cut funding, it was Diane who stepped up to the plate and made sure that didn't happen under her watch. Rest in peace Diane.
