NEW OWNER:   Welcome to Josi Merkin who has purchased 85 King Arthur Drive.  She is from Stamford, CT.   She's listed in the new KGC phonebook, but you'll need to add her phone number (488-1390).   We wish you many happy years at KGC!

ORCHIDS:   Our sincere thanks to Ike Richards who has been in charge of recycling at KGC for several years.  We appreciate the work you have done FOR US, Ike, and the money you have collected for the Club.   Ike and new Chair of Recycling, Dick Lyford, recently collected $289.22 for the Club by the aluminum they turned in.  Thanks, Guys!    (And it's our guess that Ike will continue to help Dick.)

TENNIS TIPS:   The last session of Tennis Tips was March 27th.  We had 9 players sign up and usually had 5 to 7 players out for each session.   We enjoyed having the program and hope all the players will keep playing during the summer.

FAIR FINAL FIGURES:   A report of the income and expenses for each activity at the Fair appears on the back of this week's paper Newsletter. You may pick up a copy in the Clubhouse or ask to see a friend's copy. The Fair was very successful bringing in almost as much as last year's Fair (only $63 less net).

THOUGHTS:   A friend of mine publishes a little magazine.  This issue says the art of life is constant adjusting to circumstances.  DO NOT LOOK BACK.  It will neither give you back your past nor satisfy your daydreams.  Your duty, your reward, your destiny, are here and now.  This goes along with enjoying every minute you are fortunate enough to live at King's Gate Club.  Every day is a gift for us to cherish.              --- SJB
