"Hope springs eternal." ~ Alexander Pope
For our community, we can only hope that green grass and endless blue skies return to help with the melting of our abundance of snow! It may lead to muddy playing fields and minor flooding, but we think you'll agree we'll take our chances.
The TAPA Executive Board and I would like to wish you all a happy and relaxing Spring Break. When you return, there are many springtime activities planned; as always, we welcome volunteers to make these events great. We have highlighted a few of them below, but please refer to the TA website's main calendar for a complete listing.
