April Nordik Notes


          HAPPY SPRING!!

     We couldn't ask for a more welcome Easter Sunday this year, with temperatures in the 70s and the sun shining.  April always brings a welcome change in weather and season.  While our Fall... leading up to Lucia Fest is more formal, Spring events take on a more laid back approach, and it is when we all gladly bring out the Spring Costumes, the floral head wreaths, and dust off the dancing shoes!  

     Our 4th Business meeting of the year was held on April 21st.  You can find the Minutes of that meeting here:  

  The highlight of the April Meeting was the initiation of John Twohy and Karrie Schwartz of Munster.  
Welcome John & Karrie!!!
