Start shopping for your Easter bonnet! Easter Egg Hunt and Easter Bonnet Contest for kids – March 30 at 2 p.m. in the grassy area across from McCreery Park at Greenville/Irwin Streets.

The Easter Bunny, sponsored by Autumn Care, is scheduled to show up for picture taking. (No pets) For information, call 828-749-3789.

Saluda Community Land Trust (SCLT) will have their annual meeting on April 3, 6:30 p.m. at the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration’s parish hall. Guest speaker will be Doug Elliot, a storyteller and naturalist; refreshments will be served; all welcome. Don’t forget, it’s also a good time to join or renew your yearly membership.

Saluda School notes: Box-top collection containers are located in the Saluda Public Library, Saluda Post Office, and Saluda Elementary School Office. This is a great and easy way to help support our school!

Sympathy goes to Christel Lawson — her husband (USN-retired Captain) Ramsay Lawson passed away recently. Please remember Christel in your hearts. Both have been long-time volunteers around Saluda. Also, artist John Waddill will be greatly missed: he portrayed many Saluda residents and scenes in his colorful, folksy “John-style.” Please remember his loving wife, Alice, and family.

Happy March birthday to: Faye Chandler, Genell Jespersen, Charlene Pace, Valerie Mintz, Sheldon Mintz, Curtis Pace, Anita Odgen Moore, Lloyd Thompson, Charles Weinhagen, Kevin Kerr, Dorrie McKinley, Catherine Ross, Jane Fox and Monica Pace.

As ever, thank you, dear readers in Bulletin land for reading this column!
