New Madison News: Activities dispel boredom


Boredom is not unusual this time of year. Despite having many days when ‘getting out’ was possible, the doldrums seem to prevail in March.

You can circle the spring market bake sale on April l at the New Madison American Legion. The auxiliary will offer delicious baked goods. That is worth a reminder that when you flip the calendar the traditional baked favorites will be ready.

In case you want to schedule ahead, the auxiliary will have a spaghetti supper on April 29. Mary Harter will be making the sauce and you can count on bread sticks, salad, pudding dessert and a drink for $6.

For the younger set, one option to television is the Lego Club at the New Madison Public Library. This group is very creative during meetings the fourth Tuesday of the month from 3 to 4 p.m. There are activities for ages 5 and up. And the Busy Bees will continue meeting on Mondays through May 22. Ages 3 to 7 are invited and encouraged to join in the fun from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Don’t forget the special library sponsored program, “Remembering Douglas Eugene Dickey” on March 25. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, this patriotic program will detail the experiences of Dickey, Darke County’s only recipient of the Medal of Honor. The event will be in Fellowship Hall (former Masonic Hall) from 1 to 2 p.m. The public is invited to this event.

Even in our small village, there are programs and events to brighten the days leading to spring.

Seniors at Tri-Village School are focused on June and graduation. A reminder to parents: A senior picture for the yearbooks is due March 31. You can send via e mail to [email protected] or bring a hard copy to the school.

Congratulations this week to our Patriot basketball teams for super seasons that ended in regional action. And to the fans who turn out to cheer and stay loyal to the Tri-Village red, white and blue.
