Highlights from This Month’s Newsletter…
Due to Covid-19, Senior Center is closed, all events canceled.
Camile… Who would have ever thought the closing of the Center would stretch from the Ides of March to the Goblins of October? I know most of us are anxious and perplexed about the reopening of the Center. I get phone calls and emails regarding this. I cannot help but feel pressured about this as your President. I can assure you that I have no say about this. See Newsletter.
Thanksgiving... Thanksgiving Day Contrary to legend, the pilgrims weren’t the first colonists to share a meal of thanks with Native Americans. That honor belongs to the settlers of St. Augustine, Florida, who ate hardback and beans in September 1565. The celebration at Plymouth in the fall 0f 1621 was a three-day event to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. See Newsletter.
