Grove will continue to hold a First Wednesday event for our seniors, every month, at 2 p.m. April’s program will be a travelogue about China. Ron and Diana Williamson taught English and Economics for a year at China Foreign Affairs University in Beijing. They will share their experiences, photos, cultural display items and answer questions. Our senior center project has been partially funded with federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds, administered by the Office of Commonwealth Libraries. No first Wednesday program for May, as the Friends will be getting ready for a big book sale.
