I think it is time to pull out the Thursday blog feature that looks ahead to the upcoming weekend and week for events worth noting: items on my social calendar or ones I think worthy, at least, but may or may not be able to attend.
FRIDAY, April 7
Kansas City Corporate Challege Kick-Off Walk
The Kansas City Corporate Challenge, now in its ??? year, is having its kick-off event from 4-8 p.m. this Friday at the Truman Sports Complex, Lot L. This annual walk is a family-friendly event that ends up being a huge block party. If weather cooperates, they expect 20,000 people to be there during the event. Follow the above link for all the details.
SUNDAY, April 9
Palm Sunday Fundraiser Brunch and Silent Auction
The Palm Sunday Fundraiser Brunch and Silent Auction at Avondale United Methodist Church will be from 9 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Sponsored by the Contemporary Life Sunday School Class, thee brunch includes bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, mixed fruit, and then the pastry/dessert table.
One of the annual features is a dessert “bacon and eggs” — two pretzel sticks with a button of white chocolate holding them together in the middle with a pastel M&M on top to simulate an egg easy side up.
We go to this festive brunch annually, and I recommend it to you, if you are anywhere nearby.
THURSDAY, April 13
Gold Pass Night at Worlds of Fun
Worlds of Fun opens for the season, the next day, so from 6-10 p.m. on the 13th, Gold and Platinum pass holders get admitted for a sneak peak at the park. I am almost expecting this to be busier than the official opening the next morning. The only problem is this also happens to be Maundy Thursday, with services at church, and how am I going to be in two places at once?

Worlds of Fun opens for the 2017 Season
I haven’t seen anything but pictures so far of the new entrance gate that was one of the two main projects for Worlds of Fun over the winter, but it should be a fun and impressive entrance.
They also have two new rides going in that will be worth exploring.
Since they open on Good Friday, I have the day off, but it is a school day for the son, and I’m not sure whether Betsy has to work that day yet or not. But we certainly will get there sometime. Maybe two sometimes!
