How about that Super Bowl? Did your team win? I went to the grocery store around 2 p.m. on Sunday and there were so many people. I wondered if we were having a blizzard and I hadn’t heard. Then I realized it was people getting ready for the Super Bowl parties. Bronco fans are happy today!
Happy Birthday greetings go to Pat Hamm, whose big sister is taking her to lunch on Feb. 11. I’m sure her husband, Rob, will have surprises in store as well.
Everywhere we go we see red and pink for Valentine’s Day. It’s almost here. If you haven’t found something for your sweetie it’s time to look. If you are single, celebrate all kinds of love. It’s not just a couple’s day. Go out with friends; take your grandma or favorite uncle a box of candy.  Send a card to someone and be especially good to yourself. It’s a day for love, friendship, and fun. Lets all celebrate love and enjoy every day we have.
It’s just about time for the Miss Mechanicsville Scholarship Pageant. Do you know a young woman with talent, brains and inner beauty? It is a good way to win college scholarships, saving bonds and other prizes totaling over $14,000. The Deadline to enter is March 1, so call (804) 437-4974 if interested. The rest of us can mark our calendars for April 16, the night of the pageant and a very good show.
Bobbi Jo Jackson of the Hanover Master Gardeners will be at the Mechanicsville Branch Library Saturday, Feb. 13, to show you when, how, and why to prune your trees, shrubs, and other plants to keep them healthy and growing. It won’t be long until we’re back to our gardens again.
We need your news! Please call (804) 319-7968 or email Nothing is too small for this column. We’d like others to know what their neighbors have been up to. Have a great V-Day, whatever you do!
