Once again, it is time for a change of seasons! This one is one of the best—everything is green, the flowers are blooming and there is plenty of daylight. Now, if only the rain would quit over the weekends.

Two Easter Egg Hunts
GHRL sponsored two Easter Egg Hunts on Palm Sunday, April 14. They took place at SS. Peter & Paul in Minersville, PA and St. John the Baptist in Lansford, PA. Thanks to the Home Office for the Fraternal Grants and the give-a-ways.

Hollywood, Here We Come
The after Easter casino trip was to Hollywood Casino on Sunday, April 28. The bus ride included door prizes and give-a-ways. Thanks to the GCU for the Fraternal Grant and the goodies. A few of the attendees were lucky enough to come back with a little bit more than they started with—that is always a good thing.

No-Tap Blind Doubles
The annual No-Tap Blind Doubles bowling tournament was held on Saturday, May 4 at Bowl-Arena.
