                             A Message from
                             the Women’s Council...
                             Spring is finally here!
        We had a busy month. Thanks to all who came to Greenwald &
       B C to help wrap those tree seedlings. We rapped over 1,300
       seedlings individually. Everyone chipped in to deliver these to
       3rd grade classrooms of 18 participating schools. We had nifty
       posters on the life of a tree for each student.

       our group met and have selected three lucky recipients to each
       receive $500 scholarships from the Home Builders of Central
       Michigan. I hope you will congratulate them at the May meeting
       when we presents the scholarship awards. Women’s Council raised
       $545 from the home show for scholarship purposes.

                                                                                                  nks! Greenwald & BC · Mark Cashen From Edward Jones
