    Whether you’re ready to move your family, relocate your aging parents (or yourself) to a retirement community, or just need to get your current home or office organized, Valerie Preuss of A Place In Time, has the answers.  In business since 2008, Valerie has assisted seniors in the process of de-cluttering and re-organizing to make their current home more manageable, in downsizing a lifestyle, or as first steps to relocating to a resort retirement community or an independent living residence. Her tips and expertise can help abate that “whoa, I’m overwhelmed” feeling as you work through the various areas in the home.

    I scream you scream we all scream for ice cream!

    Ice cream socials are a traditional gathering dating back to the 18th century in North America. The first ice cream social in America was in 1744, when Maryland governor Thomas Bladen served ice cream for a dinner party. The first ice cream social in the White House was in 1802 with the 3rd U.S. president, Thomas Jefferson. When ice cream became more common to the public in the 1800s, organizations such as schools and churches started hosting ice cream socials. Churches frequently organized ice cream socials since the 1860s, fashioned after the "ice cream gardens" that were common in society at the time.Today, ice cream socials still take place in government and upper class, but have spread to all classes and different organizations (wikipedia).

    So Ice Cream Socials have been around a long time but have you actually attended one? Now is your chance, the Luncheon and Special Events Committee is organizing an Ice Cream Social for the ASURA members. You will create your own ice cream sundae starting with Vanilla or Chocolate ice cream and then add your favorite toppings.

    We are fortunate to have several members of The Phoenicians' Chorus join us (Phoenicians.org). Our very own, John Brock and David Schwalm are part of this Men's Chorus and will be singing some barbershop songs, as well as telling us all about this unique vocal musical style. And maybe, just maybe, they might let us sing along.
