    April is officially the lawn and garden month, and many of us are delighted to be outside, enjoying the displays of flowers and trees.
    We also enjoy seeing all those who attend EO every Monday afternoon. This week, we met in the Fayette County Hospital LTC dining area.
    Arriving early, Pam Childers, our pianist, started the program with a variety of favorite tunes.
    Refreshments of cookies, iced tea and coffee were provided by the Evergreen volunteers group.
