Go To The Joe's Pond Association Website

While we're having blizzard conditions here at Joe's Pond, our friends in southern winter retreats such as Florida are basking in sunshine and warmth. I had a very nice postcard from Homer and Margaret Fitts in today's mail - they are thoroughly enjoying their time away from Vermont's deep freeze.  Homer and Margaret are on the go and anticipating Barre Day about a month away.  That is when a bunch of these sun worshipers get as many people with Barre, Vermont connections together as they can to come out in the sun and make jokes about the folks back home still freezing their tooshies off.  You might think there would be a dozen or so at most, but they come from far and wide and they get far more than that at their party.  Here's the invitation:

   BARRE DAY IN FLORIDA



             WEDNESDAY.......... MARCH 4th..........11:00  TO  3:00

                BRING YOUR...LAWN CHAIRS...LUNCH...BEVERAGE
                AT  NOKOMIS  BEACH  NORTH  JETTY  PARK
  THIS IS AN ANNUAL AFFAIR ON THE FIRST WED. IN MARCH.
           IF YOU HAVE FRIENDS IN THE AREA PLEASE 
        ENCOURAGE THEM TO COME TO THIS FUN TIME. 
    EVERYONE WITH ANY BARRE CONNECTION IS WELCOME.




So make your plans now, and if you can manage to be in Florida that week in March, hike on over to the park and join the fun.  And for goodness sake, bring back some of that warmth and sunshine for us here in Vermont - we'll really need it by then.
