FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Every insurance company in the country must have my phone number. I believe they are trying to convince me that if I don’t have one or more diseases, I shall very soon acquire the recommended number and need every penny of their coverage. I have decided to reject their advances and remember the words of a wise man who said, “A library is a hospital for the mind.” I plan on checking myself into the Mystery and Detective Fiction ward of the Sylvania Public Library to search out the latest Sue Grafton novel. May is the perfect month to surround myself with books because we are collecting new and gently-used books at our luncheon to give to Creating Young Readers, an offshoot of Read for Literacy.
The May 22nd luncheon at Toledo Country Club marks the seventh annual LCRTA collection of children’s books. We hope that this year we will match or exceed 2012 when members donated over 800 books. This is an opportunity to share our love of reading by providing area children with books.
Speaking of reading, I believe a show of hands would reveal that a majority of retirees have read at least one Nancy Drew mystery. If you fall into this group, you are in for a treat. Joanie Barrett will be attending our luncheon in the character of the Nancy Drew author Millie Benson and serve as our speaker.
