Southern Meadow Book Club

Southern Meadow Book Club
Next Meeting: May 20th, 6.30-7pm, in the Library

Anyone interested is welcome.

Arlene, Janet, Mary Jane, Gail, William, Arlene, Chris. Ladon, Larry, Barbara, Inge, Cybil, Norma

We concluded “Memoirs of a Geisha” by viewing the movie in the clubhouse. The current book is a series of stories by David Sataris entitled “Dress your Family in Corduroy and Denim.” Some members, I know, may find parts of the book problematic,-perhaps you can skip chapters that are uncomfortable with. I think each chapter pretty well stands by itself. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, May 20, at 7:00.

The group had decided that the next book would be a mystery. Robert Parker’s Spencer series was discussed. Mr. Spenser said his favorite book was “All Our Yesterdays” but the library doesn’t have it. I’ll go with any book you nominate, or I will select one. Please email Larry ( or call at 335-8344 if you have any suggestions.

I have talked to the people at the Kent County Bookmobile about making Southern Meadows a regular “Stop.” They are interested, but cannot start until September. Their route is well advertised in advance, and they can’t easily change it.

Old Dover Days weekend, May 1, 2 & 3

The parade line up is at 9:00 AM and begins at 9:30AM.

The festival offers you a glimpse of a small town state capital, complete with an old fashioned parade, maypole dancing, walking tours, entertainment, art, crafts, food, house tour and so much more!

Start the weekend by stopping by our free “Tourism Gives Back Concert” featuring the Funsters on Friday evening. You can purchase a BBQ dinner there cooked by nationally certified BBQ master Rob Fox and picnic on Legislative Mall, downtown Dover’s largest outdoor park. A “cruise in” will showcase antique and vintage cars.

Yard Sale Reminder

I'd like to remind you all that we are having a community yard sale on the 9th of May and we have invited over 2,000 people. If you have things to sell it will be a great day for that. The hours are from 9-2 and we will be serving hot dogs from 11:30-1. Janet will be bringing around balloons for those who want to participate/put them on their mail boxes and Larry will be cooking the hot dogs.

Please remember that ANYONE may be a potential buyer and they may pick your brains about living here and if you like it. I thank you all in advance for being on your best behavior (hee hee) and saying only the greatest things about the community we all love to be in : )

BUT please don't feel obligated to show your house. If your ok with it then I am too, but you can say "I'd rather not" and send then to the office and I think ANYONE will understand!!!

Community Garden

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to fill everyone in on the garden.... It's just about all ready. We just need a fence. If you'd like to participate please see Mike P. or Marylou to pick your plot. The only rules are:

1. Your Plot must be marked off and have your name on it.
2. You must maintain it, If you do not maintain it (to be decided by management) you will lose it (we gonna eat your veggies! Hee Hee).

On Wednesday the 8th (tomorrow) Ms. Hake and Marylou will be available during coffee talk to discuss any gardening questions you may have. They are very knowledgable on this whole gardening thing and I'm sure they can answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Thank you!
Oh, and..... coffee talk is being turned down to only once a week. On Wednesdays : )
