Mystery woman at Rotary

No kidding, I hope everything about your April Fools’ Day was truthful.

Last week, I was sitting quietly in my seat at Rotary enjoying lunch and talking with that day’s speaker, Bob Morris, of Port Ludlow. Suddenly, there was this woman walking up behind me and greeting me with a hearty “Hello, curmudgeon.” She clearly knew me from this column, so I asked who she was, and at least one of the names she told me was “Huntingford,” a well-known name in the area. I have forgotten her first and last names, but she did give me a kiss on the cheek before leaving. Frankly, I suspect she might be a regular reader, so I wish to convey my sincere appreciation and hope that she stops by often.

Speaking of Rotary, time is running out on ordering your dozen roses from your favorite Rotarian this year. The price is $20, and they will be delivered to you on April 26. Colors available are red, white, pink and yellow.

The Dine and Discover program in Port Ludlow has been a reliable source of neighborly fellowship and interesting presentations for many years. Hilda and Michael Cohen did a great job coordinating speakers and pot luck dinners until they moved away a few years ago. Milt and Doris Lum joined Don and Lynn Folsom to continue the tradition of excellence after the Cohens departed. Don and Lynn have plans to move to Colorado, so the Lums need new partners in this valuable community tradition. If you are available and have the interest, contact Milt as soon as you can to help put next winter’s speakers together.

Tax season is almost over, and if you haven’t done yours yet and need some help, the good folks in the AARP Tax-Aide program are available to help. The service is available in the Port Townsend and Tri-Area community centers as well as in Quilcene. Check them out if you need some help.

The Ludlow Maintenance Commission’s annual meeting is coming up on April 21, and will provide information on current operations and future developments and opportunities. It is always informative. The new trustees will also be announced. This is the 50th year of the LMC, and it may be appropriate to be reminded of an observation by Doug Larson: “Nostalgia is a file that removes all the rough edges from the good old days.”

Love a curmudgeon and have a great week.
