May 2013 Community Events

May 3-5. Senior Trip Tomato Plant and Geranium Fundraiser Sale. The Watervalley Co-Op will host the annual fundraiser to help defray the cost of the bus for the WHS Seniors to go on their senior trip to Washington, D.C. Donations also accepted. GO HILLTOPPERS class of 2013!

May 8. The Society Book Club Meeting.  As in years past, the May meeting of the SBC will be open to the public. Camilla Tindale will be reviewing Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D. H. Lawrence instead of a book by E. L. James as previously noted. The meeting will be held in the conference room at the Watervalley Library and starts sharply at 10:00. The public is invited but seating is limited.

(The website staff regrets the editorial slip from last year in which the SBC was lambasted as “S.N.O.O.T.Y, Seniors nodding off or tiredly yawning.” Somebody hacked the website.)
