Busy Spring!

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

We enjoyed hosting a full house this weekend of Saint Joseph’s College alumni and visiting college baseball parents! It’s great to talk to travelers and former students, giving suggestions for dining and things to do while in Rensselaer.

The tulips are starting to bloom, and I don’t know if there is a more beautiful flower in the spring! (I’m sure there are, though!)

Graduation at the College is fast approaching (May 9), and The White House on Park Avenue will be full with proud parents and grandparents. Make your plans for 2011 soon!

Spring arrives!

Hello! The recent warm weather has pushed some of our early flowers up and blooming… I’ve attached a picture during this morning’s light rain.

Spring comes to The White House on Park Avenue

Here are some spring events/happenings at nearby Saint Joseph’s College…

* April 8, 9, 10. 8 pm The Columbian Players spring musical “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”
* April 11. 3 p.m. Annual SJC spring Band Concert
* April 17 Annual Little 500 go-kart race
* April 23. President’s Senior Dinner
* April 24. Sports Hall of Fame Dinner and Induction Ceremony
* April 24. Alumni Association Board of Directors Meeting

Some ideas for a spring getaway: Fairy Oaks Farm Dairy experience is just minutes away, and a great way to see calves being born, milk production, and award-winning cheeses up close and personal.

Also, if you’re making plans this summer to visit Indiana Beach Amusement Resort and don’t want to fight the increased traffic, consider staying at The White House on Park Avenue. We are about 35 minutes from the resort, and have brochures and information about the Lakes region.

Check out our availability calendar (whitehouseonpark.com/res)for some new packages to add to your visit: cheese/crackers/grapes tray upon arrival; seasonal flowers; souvenir White House on Park Avenue Mugs; and a romantic getaway package!
