We enjoyed all the spring flowers on Facebook this past week, and know spring has sprung with an array of jonquils, crocus, and tulips all around town, just in time for Easter Sunday. Enjoy them while you can. It is supposed to snow again (this is Colorado after all).

Here it is snowing again. Lots of events, square dances, etc., were cancelled over the weekend; with most rescheduled for this weekend. The LES Bingo Night has been rescheduled for this Friday, March 6, at 6 p.m. Be sure to attend. Get in on those huge fun baskets created by each class, the cakewalk, hotdogs, and of course bingo! It is a benefit for the Lyons Elementary School. See you there!

Wow, a cold weekend and more to come! We should leave the water from your faucet dripping a little, better to be safe than sorry. My crocuses were peaking out. I hope the snow protected them. Yes, spring is just around the corner.

By March 24, Lyons’ citizens will have chosen by vote whether we are willing to cede five to seven acres in Bohn Park for the purpose of building affordable recovery housing.
