Letter From the President

Cathie John, Chapter President

Spring is finally in the air … APRIL FOOL!

Ha, here in Colorado you just never know what the next day will bring weather-wise.  It’s one of the reasons I enjoy living in our beautiful state - the hope that April showers really do bring May flowers!

I love the month of April, though.  It is thought that the word April comes from a Latin word meaning “to open” and describes the trees blooming in springtime.  If you drive down North Cascade Avenue this time of year you can almost see the trees budding right in front of you – definitely a special time of year.

Here are some fun history facts about the month of April:

  • 1513      Juan Ponce de Leon set foot in Florida – the first known European to do so
  • 1850      Los Angeles was incorporated as a city
  • 1930      Twinkies were invented
  • 1938      The first Bugs Bunny cartoon appeared
  • 1954      USAFA was established in Colorado Springs
  • 1955      McDonalds starting selling hamburgers
  • 1972      First ever mobile phone call placed
  • 1981      IBM introduced its first PC
  • 1990      My beautiful daughter was born

Can you imagine how different our lives would be if any one of these events had not occurred?  Obviously some events have a greater impact than others but in this month of rebirth, I hope you all experience positive events that put a “SPRING” in your step!

Thank you for the honor of serving as your President,

Cathie John
