Another week gone by. It was 80 degrees today! Too hot for May! Only one more week of school. How time flies. Be sure to attend all the last of school events. Over sixty students will be graduating from Lyons High, most receiving scholarships and awards. We are proud of our students, and our school, being one of only two schools of the St. Vrain District making it to the top 5% in US World Report. Congratulations.

Yesterday was May Day! In the olden days, folks would leave a flower on your doorstep, ring the door bell, and run. If you caught them, you got a kiss. It would be nice to do that again!
More snow is on the way. However, we have had lovely weather and warm sun to make the flowers bloom.
CONGRATULATIONS to Lyons Middle/Senior High and Peak to Peak Charter School who are among the top schools in Colorado, according to U.S. News and World Report. Peak to Peak was ranked first in the state, with Lyons at 16th. They said sixty-two percent of the seniors took AP

Wow first a nice rain, and now a nice BIG snowstorm, and more coming (13” yesterday), which will green the grass, save us from fires, give us drinking water, help the farmers, and is truly worth millions of dollars to all. We are all very thankful.
I have an anniversary coming up; April 23, 1950, F. LaVerne Johnson of Niwot and I were married in the Lyons Methodist Church, with Rev. Albert Wagner presiding. Truly a long time ago. I worked for O. J. Ramey

Now we are having a lot of snow, sixteen inches last week, and it melted right away, and about eight inches today! That will really green things up. It is a sad thought, the snow and rain cause things to grow, the sun then dries them out, and causes the wildfires! There doesn’t seem to be any solution to that on going problem! However, I like nice sprIng snows that melt fast. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Monday was April Fool’s Day however, the weather was not fooling when it was so great Easter Sunday. We hope all enjoyed Easter. The Fire District’s Easter egg hunt with Mr. Bunny was great with lots of kids and lots of prizes. Churches were filled with worshipers happy that the Lord “arose” so many years ago to save us from our sins, and give us something to “look” to at all times. And then, of course, more Easter egg hunts, brunches, dinners with our loved ones, a ride to the hills, games, picnics, etc. An enjoyable day!
