Hi to All

'Hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter and are enjoying the beautiful spring weather! We spent our Easter with family and now we are both back in Grand Forks. Rick had a wonderful time in Mexico, January and February, enjoying playing music at Salvadors Restaurant as well as other venues this year. He met and played with other musicians, Hey Thomas!, and had a great time with friends. Upon returning to Grand Forks, Rick played for the fund raiser at the Omega Restaurant for "Friends Of The Library" doing the smooth jazz set. Thanks to everyone who came out to support this worthy cause.

On a personal note, we are once again blessed to be grandparents, welcoming our beautiful new grandson, Richard Beckett, into the world on February 20th in Ottawa, where I (Maureen) spent 3 weeks with our son and family, and then spent another a month in Nunavut helping out and enjoying everyone. What a treat; thanks kids!! While I was up in Cape Dorset, I had the privilege of being asked to sing for the elders in the community for their "Elders Appreciation Night", It was a very special night and such an honour ...."Thank you, again!"

Our gospel songs have been released in Europe and we are experiencing success with them, having been added to play lists in 4 countries so far. Thanks to the DJ's; we appreciate it so much!

We hope that you are enjoying the spring and thanks so much for stopping by and checking in with us and we really do love to hear from you so please keep in touch through our comment page.

Rick and Maureen
