The big Memorial Day weekend is here, which means to Tonto Village a surge in visitors and part-time residents opening up their cabins for the summer season.
Last Friday afternoon my husband and I attended a performance of The Shelby School’s version of “The Wizard of Oz.” What a great production these kids put on — from first-graders to high school age. They outdid themselves in a very enjoyable performance.
Cinco de Mayo — meaning the 5th of May — is this weekend. It commemorates the Battle of Puebla in which outnumbered Mexican troops defeated the invading French soldiers.
The month of April is just about over — there are only about four days left. The Village is still showing off with the fruit trees busting with blooms and the iris and tulips are just starting to show off, along with the wild grape hyacinths.
The air smells so sweet with the blossoms just starting to come into full bloom on the apple trees.
Tonto Village was covered in white on Tuesday morning. What a shock that was. I am positive that the calendar says April, synonymous with spring, warm weather, flowers, etc.
Spring is a wonderful time of year with a feeling of renewal as all the flowers and trees come to life.
The month of March is just about history with only this week left, but it is a very important Holy Week for Christians as well as for the Jewish community celebrating Passover.
This past week has definitely improved over last week. For one thing, no more snow!
What a week! Tonto Village was hammered by a blinding snowstorm last Friday, which continued into Saturday.
