Dear Friends,

The stormy March has come at last,
With wind, and cloud, 
and changing skies:
I hear the rushing of the blast
That through the snowy valley flies.
-William Cullen Bryant

March is here which means spring can't be too far behind.  So far this year the winter has been kind.  February may be the shortest month of the year but Gramatan Village members kept busy!

We enjoyed Yoga with Jonalie, learned how to avoid phone and Internet scams with Dana Bos of Home Instead at our monthly Tea and Conversation, and, of course, took time to socialize! Our Wine Awhile at Ernie's Wine Bar + Eats was tremendous fun!  A great way to spend a winter evening.  Gramatan Village is proud to support local businesses in the community.  

Gramatan Village volunteers are the heart and soul of our community. They offer their time to make life easier for our members.  Be sure to call the office if you need assistance from a volunteer!

Our Program Committee is busy planning future events and activities. We know that connecting with others socially is good for one's health.   See the sidebar for details on upcoming programs.  Members are always welcome to bring a friend.
