Around the ‘Burg


With Janet & Judy



Hello Lewisburg!

Twenty-five days until spring! Even though the temps still reflect winter, have you noticed that when the sun is shining, you can actually feel a little warmth? Today I pulled out all of the remains of the winter plants and added some “solar” tulips and silk flowers. Don’t laugh, it looks brighter than bare dirt. We are so anxious for spring that we have been buying flower and vegetable seeds by the bag full. We have a small portable greenhouse, potting trays and flower pots. If spring won’t come to us, we’ll make it happen on our own.

Upcoming events

Feb. 23 — Euchre. Lewisburg Trinity Lutheran Church. Play this famous card game from 9 a.m.-noon. Coffee and snacks are provided. Maybe I can talk Judy into checking this out. We love to play euchre but it has been a while since we stepped into the arena.

Feb. 24. Neighbor Night. Lewisburg Trinity Lutheran Church. Meals served from 5-6:30 p.m. Great food followed by an awesome spiritual time led by Pastor Cavendish of Lewisburg Trinity Lutheran Church. These half hour services begin at 6:30 p.m. and are finished by 7 p.m. Thank you to the kitchen for the tremendous meals. This past week was superb. We don’t want to make anyone hungry, but we had sloppy joes, french fries, baked apples, cole slaw and desserts of all kinds. Come and enjoy the meal. Be fed physically and spiritually.

Lewisburg’s secret (at least we didn’t know)

Brown Memorial Library encourages readers to participate in a book discussion every other month. The next discussion group will meet on March 1 at 6:30 p.m. The chosen book for this month is “ Circling the Sun” by Paula McLain. This sounds like a time where opinions make a difference. We heard that refreshments are served. That’s topping on the ice cream for Michelle. Call the library for more information.

In closing

We have heard so many wonderful comments about the village. Those comments came from folks traveling through: Illinois, Maryland, Indiana and Kentucky. We should be so proud of the Village in which we live and support the many opportunities that are planned for us. Remember: “There is spirit; there is grace in our peaceful country place.” Tell someone why you are proud to be a “Burger.”

Until next week …
