Tuesday March 23

Well, the nice weather “party” looks to be over for the time being folks. We are expecting rain for all or part of most days this week and into the weekend.  Today will be partly sunny, with a high near 57 degrees. Tonight we have a chance of light rain before 2:00 am, then a chance of rain after 2:00 am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 43. Southeast wind 9 to 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

After posting the photo of the tree and plaque on the GRMC campus in yesterday’s Notes, I heard from Anne Forrester, former Civic Club of Oakland president from 2000 – 2002.  Anne reports that the Civic Club has a long history of planting trees in memory of deceased members.  Two that come to mind for Anne are trees for Dottie Leighton and Anne Grant that were planted on the grounds of the Historical Society when she was president. Thanks for the info Anne…
