Congratulations to the many who have recently or will be graduating…from the youngest, graduating from their pre-school and eager to begin “school” to the Kindergarteners, the Middle School students, the Seniors in High School, many now college bound and others ready to seek employment and of course to those College graduates who are now ready to tackle the world and make their fortune. Congratulations to all and Best Wishes for the future, whatever you may choose to do.
Was your flag flying proudly on Friday, June 14th, which was Flag Day this year? I like to fly my flag every day, on a porch fairly well protected from the weather. We should take every opportunity to honor our flag and of course Flag Day is one of the most important days to do this.
With hopes that all the deserving dads were given special treatment last Sunday on ‘Father’s Day’. It seems that the younger children, who have made a special card or gift for dad at school, or gone, shopping to pick out the special gift, are more eager than Dad himself for Father’s Day! When we get older we sometimes have to celebrate Dad by long distance, with the help of the Phone Company and the Post Office. However you celebrated, hope it was great.
Friday, June 21, will be the official “First Day of Summer”. Summer makes us think of days at the seashore, vacations or lots of other things connected to fun. Summer is also a wonderful time to do many things around the house. If you are thinking of maybe doing some painting, a Do-It-Yourself Home Painting Workshop will be held on Saturday, June 22, 2013 from 9:00 am until 11:00 am. This is a one day workshop and the fee is $30.00. This how to workshop is specifically designed for homeowners to learn or to improve their skills on painting their homes. This class is taught by a professional painter, Mr. Raul Nessi, who wants to show you the tricks of the trade and save you some money in the process. The class concentrates on how to prepare surfaces and also emphasizes the proper and most effective ways to use tools related to the trade all while keeping safety in mind. If you would like additional information, please contact the Jack Crippen Senior Center, 3120 Tyler Avenue, El Monte, California or phone 626-580-2210.
Where ever you are, whatever you do, be happy.
See you soon, someplace AROUND TOWN.
