out and pick me a salad.”
At the age of 82, she

Lexington council
members, Bill Beard, Shei-
la Miller and Bobbi Gordon
accepted the resignation of
town recorder, Janette El-
drige at the regular council
meeting held on March 13
at the Lexington town hall.
Council members have
received applications and
will begin interviewing for
the position the week of
Mar. 19.
In other business, Lo-
rene Montgomery, a local
resident asked the council
what could be done to clean
up a lot near her prop-
erty that has been used as a
dumping ground for quite
some time. She reported
there are old RVs on the
site as well as debris from
a tree that fell during a wind
storm. The tree appeared to
have fallen elsewhere and
the debris was piled on the
empty lot. After discussion,
it was decided to locate the
legal owner and ask them to
clean it up.
Maintenance manager,
Ed Dickenson reported
the new fire siren has been
ordered and should arrive
soon. He also reported that
he is gearing up for spring
and summer mowing sea-

A view from the hill
By Doris Brosnan
If memory serves cor-
rectly, Carolyn Hall en-
joyed sunny skies and near-
60-degree weather on her
birthday this month. On
the 5 th , Carolyn shared her
celebration with family and
Terrace friends at her birth-
day luncheon. After its bold
reminder on St. Pat’s week-
end that it is still the boss,
the weather now seems
to be agreeing that spring
has officially returned, by
mixing some spring storms
with the return of some of
those sunny skies over the
One amenity at the Ter-
race is the small hair sa-
lon, where two hair stylists
come on a regular basis to
keep some of the residents’
locks looking stylish. One
need only to contact the
staff for the phone numbers
of the two professionals to
make a choice and set up
appointments that fit their
Wanting to look their
best may have been on the
minds of the residents who
participated in the Wee Bit
O’ Ireland activities down-
town last weekend.
Five residents attended
the Thursday evening pro-
duction of “Searching for
Meaning” at St. Patrick’s
Parish hall. The unanimous
review seems to be, “It was
meaningful - illustrating
how God can change a life
- and it was entertaining.
Fine performances by all
and an outstanding debut by
Andrew Lindsay.” The resi-
dents send their congratula-
tions to Fr. Gerry Condon,
co-producers and actors for
another successful start to
the weekend celebration.
The street activities
topped off by the Great
Green Parade were enter-
taining and five residents
enjoyed these, protected
from the inclement weather
that chilled everyone on the
streets. When one observer
noted that Heppner’s wet
St. Pat’s Day was followed
by a sunny day, Manager
Nairns pointed out that
Ireland is called the “Em-
erald Isle” for a reason. An
internet search revealed
this report from Ireland:
Very cold this weekend
with wind chill and icy
patches. Snow showers also
but some areas staying dry,
especially the northwest.
Temperatures will plum-
met to -3C tonight and it
will feel colder in the east
to northeasterly wind. Cold
and windy with a significant
wind chill in fresh to strong
and blustery easterly winds.
Dry in many areas this af-
ternoon, but there will be
scattered, mainly light hail
or sleet showers in eastern
counties, with snow on high
Though everyone is
Irish on St. Patrick’s Day,
the residents at morning
discussion next Monday
might offer a different idea
of the perfect holiday. That
will be Make Up Your Own
Holiday day, which will
encourage imaginations
to run wild. Maybe one or
more suggestions will catch
on and be celebrated in the
future by the community on
the hill.
Everyone was encour-
aged to submit a favorite
oatmeal-cookie recipe at
the morning conversation
on the 18 th . That day was
designated Oatmeal Cookie
Bakeoff day and some of
the recipes will eventually
end up for taste-testing at
the dining tables. Naturally,
each recipe will require
more than the tasting of just
one cookie.
This week included
Children’s Poetry Day and
the morning conversation
focused on favorite child-
hood poems and poems
written by individuals when
younger. And speaking of
young, the 22 nd is As Young
As You Feel Day, so some
residents might be demon-
strating a variety of youth-
ful maneuvers. On Friday,
readers of this column are
invited to bring puppies that
are friendly and house-bro-
ken to the Terrace for visits
on Puppy Day. Surely, that
morning discussion will
bring memories of puppies
from the past.
Most of this month’s
days will include the rou-
tine and welcomed activi-
ties brought to the Terrace
by caring and sharing indi-
viduals and organizations
who volunteer weekly. No
more birthday celebrations
this month, but a few spe-
cial menu additions will
still be cause for wee cel-
ebrations – what’s not to
like about peanut clusters,
potato chips, chocolate
covered raisins and taters?
And what’s not to like
about changing seasons?
On the first full day of
spring, the residents and
staff view the greening of
the grass and the sprout-
ing of the perennial plants
as great reasons to be op-
timistic about being out
and about very soon. They
know they will soon be
viewing the results of their
planting of seeds for later
transplanting to the flower
pots and flower beds.
Individuals who might
want to check out accom-
modations at the Terrace,
move in, contribute their
special days to the birthday-
celebration calendar, and
get in on some of the ameni-
ties on the Hill should call
541-676-0004. Three apart-
ments are now available.
