On Friday (Jan. 2) we celebrated the new year with sparkling cider and made toasts to a much better new year, Mary Bean’s 100th birthday, Diana Hottell’s birthday, and many other things. Then the Hottells played dance music after lunch. Many of our friends from over the hill were there for the celebration.
The gift basket was won by Mary Ann Banes — congratulations, and we hope you enjoyed your bottle of bubbly even if was just cider.
We were all saddened by the passing of our volunteer Kazia’s husband, Richard Kuligowski. Our condolences go out to her and her family. Richard was also a volunteer for many of our events. He will be greatly missed by all of us.
