A Note from the President

Hello to everyone,


I like to quote my father on Spring. “Spring has sprung, the sap is riz’, I wonder where the flowers is.” It is an anonymous little ditty, but I loved hearing him recite it. He is gone but his stories and his sayings and his songs live on. Isn’t that what we all want? So, when the flowers bloom, I think of him. Spring has given me daffodils. The irises are poking through the dark earth. There are buds on the trees. It makes me think happy thoughts. It is rejuvenating.


We need this rebirth as we begin to see each other face to face. My husband and I are fully “vaxed”. I know it isn’t the end of this disease for the world or even the USA, but it is a positive step forward for us.


I like to remain positive in all I do. I am looking forward to being outside. I am anxious to work in the garden in the warmth of Spring.


This last year has been so difficult for so many of my friends. I hold them all close. Our stories will reflect our journey this past year.


Keep telling stories and I hope to see you soon.


Joyce Slater

President, MO-TELL
