Week of July 30, 2017

This is National Night Out Week.  The eastern portion of Birchwood is getting together for our Umpteenth annual Potluck.  It actually has been going on for much longer, but we have lost count (or we don't want to acknowledge just how old we are).  If you would like to join us, feel free--all of Birchwood is really one big neighborhood.  Bring a pot to share and a lawn chair and meet us at the end of Jay Street in the cul-de-sac at 6 pm.  The BBQ will be on and we will have hot dogs for everyone.

On other news, Xcel is continuing to replace its gas lines in the Oakridge area.  It has been a headache at times as the power has been cut and they have hit cable lines and knocked them out or service as well.  At least the weather has held to keep them on schedule.

Speaking of weather, we had a delightful day Saturday morning for the Marion Johnson Across the Lake Swim.  I had serious envy as the swimmers has warm, calm waters the whole way.  The quickest swimmer made it in 20 minutes and everyone was across within 45 minutes.

Maybe next year you can join us.

As always, feel free to contact me: Wingfield.mary@gmail.com
