Messages from MHCA's President, Chuck Kreimendahl:

It's spring (ok, not really) - but at this time of year all youngsters' thoughts turn to - gardening! Maybe you went to the recent Garden Expo. Or have been poring over your seed catalogs. Or just plain hoping fro something green to show up soon. I went to Sun Prairie to see Jimmy the Groundhog this month and his proclamation was that, well, we all have a lot more time to plan our garden and other spring activities. I don't have a lot of room for vegetables in my yard due to shade, but usually squeeze a few in among the ornamentals and perennials. Also looking to continue to improve the soil in my yard--who put all that clay in the Midvale Heights neighborhood anyway? So, I hope your dreams and schemes for a bountiful plant and garden year are keeping you warm these last weeks of winter. Hang in there!
Our neighborhood to the east has a gem of a winter activity center at Westmorland Park. I have helped their great group of volunteers to keep up the ice at the hockey and recreational rinks. So bundle up, grab your skates and enjoy the best Madison Parks ice there is. It is lighted in the evenings, and the warming shelter is open.
