For The Daily News

KINGSFORD — Mild weather puts a smile on many people’s faces as they welcome the absence of snow and ice.

Golden K members arrived on Monday morning with smiles on their faces and songs in their hearts, as the warmer conditions allowed for an easy commute.

Alyce Derwinski quickly arrived at the piano to accompany members as they sang “Ain’t She Sweet,” “Baby Face,” and “Yankee Doodle Dandy.”

There were no birthdays, but the “Anniversary Song” was sung for Sue and Gary Proudfit. Singing continued with the guest song for Larry and Kathy Bourdeau, Crystal Hogan, Dawn Kranz, Sue Sjoquist, Mickey Khoury and Ann Buechel.

Everyone was happy to see Joan Jouppi at the meeting after her absence and welcomed her back.

Pot of Gold winnings went to Larry Bourdeau. Happy Dollars were read by Gary Proudfit. Bill Roberts was happy for a great weekend at the ski meet with family and friends.

Jouppi expressed her thanks for all the cards, concerns and prayers. Her journey has been long and ongoing. All prayers were needed.

Thought for the day was read by Roberts, “Skiing is the best way in the world to waste time.”

Today’s program was the musical duo of Hogan and Kranz. With February being the month of amore, the two felt a repertoire of love songs would be appropriate.

Together, they harmonized, while accompanying on their guitars, to many familiar songs including “Put A Little Love In Your Heart,” “When You Say Nothing At All,” “My Guy” and “Stand By Me.” They also sang several favorite numbers by Elvis and The Beatles, “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You,” “Love Me Tender,” “All My Lovin,” and “Can’t Buy Me Love.” Many Golden K members sang along with the well-known music.

Hogan and Kranz were thanked for their enjoyable performances, and everyone appreciated their willingness to provide entertainment for the group.

Next week will have a presentation by representatives of the Almost Home Animal Shelter. Anyone is welcome to attend at 10 a.m. Monday at the First Presbyterian Church in Kingsford.
