The month of April brings us Easter, World Health Day (must have been cancelled in 2020), and Burrito Day. Even the humble, but delicious, grilled cheese sandwich has a day in April as does the very under-rated blueberry pie. April also has seen more than its share of tragedies. Lincoln was shot in April. The Titanic found an iceberg. The San Francisco earthquake was in April as was the Oklahoma City bombing. Wow! But, hey the weather is beautiful, the spring breakers are finally heading back home and many of us have been vaccinated.
Thank you to Vernon and Arlene Cash for hosting a great driveway party and bringing the Big Bad Duo back to Greenbriar for some fine musical entertainment. It was good to see everyone out enjoying themselves.
Also, thanks go out to Dick Berryman and Dawn Bobay for leading the Putt-Putt activity recently. Congratulations to Maggie Kurtz who took top honors and had two aces along the way.
Incoming GBSC President, Angie Corbeil organized and led a group of neighbors on a boat cruise on Lake Dora and Canal on March 5. 15 folks sailed on the excursion where they saw a 13-foot gator among other species of wildlife. The group had lunch at Jeramiah’s after the trip.
Driveway Party. Wednesday, April 14th from 6:00 to 8:00 Donn and Marlene Cunningham will host a driveway party at their home (8380 Hamilton). The previously postponed Veteran’s Photo contest will take place. You can still enter or re-enter pictures of your veteran by dropping the photo at the Seimears (8380 Clifton) by April 9.
Off Campus Golf. A golfing road trip to Juliette Falls for 9 holes will be followed by dinner at Stumpknockers restaurant on Friday April 16th. Contact Marcea Seimears at: email@example.com or 509-220-13344 if want to participate.
Greenbriar Social Club Meeting. We will have a GBSC meeting at Chatham on Tuesday, April 27. The meeting will be outdoors at the Chatham pavilion. Please bring a chair in case we have more attendees than the picnic tables can accommodate, as well as your own beverage. At the meeting we will discuss the results of the recent GBSC survey and have official installation of new officers.
Looking a bit further down the road into May, we will have a scavenger hunt and a golf cart road trip across the new Village’s bridge. Stay tuned; details will be available soon.
Job Opening: We are looking for someone to serve as historian for GBSC. This person would gather and preserve articles and other documents describing activities of the social club. If you are interested or have questions about this contact Angie or Marcea.
GBSC is also hoping to find someone or a couple of someone’s to run the golf cart poker run. The Frey’s are looking for someone to share and eventually take over the horse racing event. This event has been popular and Rich and Carol are more than willing to share their experience and mentor new leaders. We are also seeking hosts for driveway parties. Now is the time to for some new blood to step up and get involved. Remember it takes a village to keep Greenbriar the active, fun place we know it to be. Sign-up sheets will be available at the April 27 meeting at Chatham.
Adopt-a-bin: The GBSC has a large plastic bin which is looking for a home. If you have space to store this poor homeless container contact Angie Corbeil.
Cocktail of the month: Spring Rain.
2 oz vodka
½ oz fresh lime juice
½ oz dry vermouth
Mix with ice in a shaker, shake and strain into a martini glass and garnish with a lime wedge.
