Editor’s Message March 2023

March makes me think of fabulous weather, new shoes, and new opportunities. I also love how Westbrook Village comes even more alive as we enjoy our gorgeous spring temperatures. Our weather is truly why snowbirds from across the nation flock here! Check out all the outdoor club activities in this month’s issue.

There are an incredible number of gifted artists here in Westbrook. Make sure you visit the fine Arts show on March 11 and 12 for a showcase of some of our amazing artists (page 20). Read a recap of the 2023 Fabulous Follies on page 19 and all about our featured artist, Carol Fuqua on page 21.

Our city has entered a new season with new leadership, and our new Mayor, Jason Beck, introduces himself to us on page 20. Make sure to also read how the Posse installed Commander Carneiro for a second year on page 27. Make sure and support this vital organization with donations and your volunteer efforts–it helps keep the community safe.

Don’t forget to take note of daylight savings for out-of-state folks, so you can call your friends and family at the right hour (we in Arizona don’t change our clocks like others do).

It brings out the Irish in me as we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day festivities that pop up around town. Find out some tidbits about St. Patrick in our Inspirational Corner and make some Green Irish Soda Bread with the recipe from Chuy and Jan on page 18.

May your troubles be less
And your blessings be more
And may nothing but happiness
Come through your door.

Here’s wishing you all the Irish blessings you can hold in your life!
