    April Fool’s Day.  And what pranks did you endure?

    This week promises to be interesting. Mother Nature is bent on throwing us a huge curve ball – and I’m not talking about the opening of spring season baseball, unless the white stuff in the sky is large and wet, and yucky! So far, my Ouiji board is not helping with the forecast, but I know Wednesday evening and Thursday so far are not looking like spring!

    We are still searching for a gently used laptop, less than eight years old, as our public laptop is on its “last legs.”  It doesn’t need to have all the bells and whistles – just the ability to connect to the internet and do some word processing.  We would be very grateful for a Mac or PC.

    Midcoast Ca$h only has appointments at the United Way of Wiscasset in Bath on April 9, 11, or 13, and the Bowdoinham Fire Station on April 6. Appointments are a must. If you’re interested, we will help you with the appointment sign-up process at The Community Center. Alternatively, you can make your own appointment by calling 207-295-6340 or 207-751-3756; or email, or visit the following website: 

    And we have a new game here to play. It’s called Chroma Cube and looks like fun and challenging. Chroma Cube is a color-based deduction puzzle that challenges you to figure out the resting place of all 12 colored cubes in a 3-4 grid.  Once you think you have the correct arrangement of the colored cubes, you can check your guess on the back of the card. Come on in and try it out!

    Here is our schedule for April 8-April 12:   

    Monday, April 8: Drop-In Knitting 10 a.m.-noon; Inner Peace 1-2 p.m.  

    Tuesday, April 9: Mah Jongg 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; QiGong 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; VIP Luncheon at St. Andrews Village at 1 p.m.; Last day to get your taxes prepared at the Boothbay Town Hall (by appointment)

    Puzzles, coffee, tea, goodies, and good camaraderie are always available all week long. Please save us from eating too many goodies ourselves by coming in and sharing our snacks. And we always welcome new faces and fresh ideas!
