FROM THE DESK OF EDITOR ELEANORE TURKINGTON
Is it December already? I just stored the turkey platter away and it’s time to place our Christmas tree in the living room window. As I arrived at the office this morning, the temperature had plunged and there was a hint of winter in the air. There are many busy, bustling days at our Center, but the holiday season really adds to the air of anticipation. Amanda Berry, our Program Director, has some exciting plans for us this month. You will not want to miss the Center’s Gospel Choir performance, Sunday December 10 at 2:00 p.m. You will, I am sure, capture the spirit of the holiday season as you listen to the choir perform “The Light of the World.” Dancing to D.J. Vinnie Carr’s music and a delicious dinner, at our New Year’s Party, December 29, will add to your greeting of 2018. Tickets are $15.00 and are available at our front office. You can check out our Center’s complete list of December’s activities on page 5 of today’s bulletin. Wendy Ferraro, our kitchen supervisor, is inviting us to share our favorite recipes. You can email Wendy at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail or drop off your recipe at our office at 9 Jepson Drive. By the way, I have quite a collection of used postage stamps. If you’re interested, they are yours to keep. Just give me a call at 203 877-5131, ext. 2121. I would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season. Let’s look forward to the New Year with anticipation and joy.
