For those of you who might have missed our quarterly  meeting because you couldn't figure out this new computer stuff, or perhaps it was just too early, the recording of the meeting can be viewed on Brookshire's FB page or by clicking this link: 

The GRAND REOPENING weekend of the coffee shop will be April 30th & May 1st.  

Location - lower level of the community building.   Time - 8:30 – 10:00 am 


Friday - bagel or muffin with coffee/ tea -- $2.00 

Saturday – French toast & sausage with coffee/tea --$3.00

 Special events -- Daily raffle for free breakfast 

- Raffle Saturday to take home fresh flowers vases from tables to enjoy in your home. 

- Three community residents will be showcasing some of their art work on the walls of the lower level of the community center for the next few months. Come meet the artists. One artist will have greeting cards with her photos on for sale. The artists are: Judy Mullen, Sandra Sigley and Trudi Sine. 

The weather is predicted to be warmer and allow for outdoor dining for those who chose to sit outside on the patio.    

MASKS are REQUIRED until you are seated at a table. Then a volunteer server will come to your table to take your order and your money. We are striving for a touch free service. We are using all disposable plates, utensils and coffee cups, and we will ask that you throw your own paper goods away after you have finished eating on your way out of the coffee shop. You may bring your own coffee mug to use if you so desire.  

If you are not feeling well, or have any symptoms of a cold or other acute illness, please do not come to the coffee shop until you are back to health.  

Looking Forward - the menu for May: 

- Every Friday in we will have muffins & bagels 

- Saturdays are as follows: 

May 1 - French toast & sausage 

May 8 - Bruffins - celebrating Mothers’ Day -- all women’s meals are $1.00. 

May 15 - Pancake & sausage 

May 22 - Bruffins 

HOA ELECTIONS - There will be two elections coming up for HOA board members. Our president, David Juszynski, will be completing his second term and will be stepping down. Linda O'Connell will be completing her first three year term and has decided not to run again. Anyone interested in running should contact Bruce Augenstein. We would like to have resumes of interested people to him by May 1st to start the process with an early June deadline. Terms start July 2021.  

There is a list of activities with chairpersons and phone numbers which is posted in Information Room, Office window and on our Website.  If your committee has changed chairperson or person in charge or phone number or when your activity (e.g. Bonco) starts up again, please let Donna Styer know so it is placed on the Brookshire Calendar.  Her phone number is 215-527-4043. 

BROOKSHIRE SINGLES GROUP - The Brookshire Singles group will hopefully begin meeting once again on Thursday, May 27th, for an outdoor luncheon.  If you are new to the community, and would enjoy meeting other ladies here in the neighborhood, we would heartily welcome you.  Please contact me by email, or call me at 717-879-9187, and I will share the details with you and will add you to our master list for any future gatherings.  This is a fun group!      Debbie Cornelius 

BOCCE – BOCCE LEAGUE is forming for the spring 2021 season. Get active, get out doors and enjoy our beautiful spring with your neighbors over a game of bocce. So far there are 6 women’s teams and 2 men’s teams that have signed up. The 2021 spring bocce season will start May 1st for 6- 8 weeks, so pick your partners and email me with your team names. Friday mornings (starting 4/30) from 10-11 will be for open bocce for anyone who wants to come and play. If you want to play and do not have a partner, please contact me and I'll try to connect you with someone who also needs a partner. -- Doris Wenger, ( )
