Yvonne Weir, Brenda Allen and I left Savannah on Wednesday morning and went to Jekyll Island, where we took a carriage tour and enjoyed seeing the grand winter homes of the wealthy families who were members of the historic Jekyll Island Club in the late 1800s and early 1900s. After leaving the island, we drove along the coast of the Florida panhandle. The beaches were beautiful, and we had some delicious seafood at Captain Snook's in Eastpoint. On Thursday, we drove to New Orleans and took the St. Charles Streetcar through the garden district. We also had beignets at the Cafe Du Monde before starting the long drive home. We had a wonderful time!

Robert, Yvonne and Wesley Weir had a good time at the Embassy Suites in Dallas on Friday and Saturday. They met Dustin and Natalie Weir and Dacy, Elise and Ely Campbell at Posado's Mexican Restaurant, and then they all swam in the hotel pool.

Chip and I took Morgan, Kende and Jaidyn Joslin to the La Quinta Inn in Sulphur Springs for a quick, fun spring break weekend on Friday, March 16. We enjoyed swimming in the indoor pool that evening and the next morning. After lunch at El Charro, we had a great time at LD's Animal Park in Peerless, where we saw wallabies, ring-tailed lemurs, coatimundi and a giant tortoise, among several other exotic animals, and even got to hold the kinkajous. LD's Animal Park is located on County Road 4754 and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.

Kathy Lennon of the Pilot Club of Sulphur Springs would like to invite all ladies to their annual Spring Extravaganza, which includes a program, brunch, silent auction and raffle. The event will be held at the Hopkins County Civic Center on Saturday, March 24, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Sherrie Kulwicki, founder of Firmly Planted Ministries Inc., will be sharing her passion for all women to experience love for God and for one another. Tickets are $20 and may be purchased online at www.sspilotclub.org or from any Pilot Club member. They can also be purchased at the Civic Center on Houston Street. The Pilot Club only has one fundraiser a year and the money is used for their many worthy projects, with their main focus being on those that benefit people with brain-related illnesses or disorders. Kathy said that even though the event is for ladies only, men can also help out by buying a raffle ticket on the stainless steel grill and patio furniture. Raffle tickets are $10 and you don't have to be present to win. One raffle ticket is included in the cost of the ticket for the Spring Extravaganza.
