Hope all the mothers had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Sunday was such a beautiful day for any activity. My daughter, Holly, and I spent the day together. I treasure the time I have with her. She has truly been a blessing to me.

The Francisco Presbyterian Women will be having their “Tent Event” Saturday, May 14, at the church. Vendors are invited to come and rent a tent for $10 and sell their products.

Have you noticed the playground at the Francisco School? It’s looking better and better every day! Volunteers are busy painting, updating, planting, and just plain ol’ working hard to make our playground beautiful again! Community Fun Day will be Saturday, May 14 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Bring the kids and enjoy our new playground! There will be games for the kids and activities for the adults. Bring a picnic or grab a hot dog while you’re there. This is also planting day for our community herb garden, so come out and help with that. If anyone has any perennials that they need to divide, bring the extras to us. We can use those too.
