Message from the Regional Coordinator, Stephenee Borelli
Whether from exploding transformers, claps of thunder, or the cracks of falling limbs, the year literally started with a bang. The extreme weather has presented many challenges as our members, friends, and neighbors have experienced flooding, water damage, and loss of beloved trees within our “City of Trees.”
I have not been able to find a Latin term for the grief one feels over a fallen tree, but I did find a delightful quote from our favorite author:
“I will not say your mulberry-trees are dead, but I am afraid they are not alive,” Jane Austen wrote to her sister Cassandra (31 May 1811).
Jane Austen did always find a way to treat a serious subject with levity. Thank goodness!
With much hope for a gentle spring,
