Would residents be interested in a Veteran's Day Parade?

July 11, 2013

The annual 4th of July Picnic was a success. Over 100 people attended. It was quite a pleasant gathering. The weather was definitely co-operating. The good was good. Our chef, Meryl Redman, did a superb job as usual. I say, “as usual,” because Meryl has cooked for all of our July 4th picnics. A special thanks to the ladies on the serving line. Larry Joslin and I were the speakers. Even Jim Calhoun got in a few words. If you missed it, don’t miss it next year.
