Come see Molly! This dignified little lady is a six-month old Boxer mix. She’s a little reserved at first, but then her tail starts wagging and she can’t wait to go with you. A sweetheart of a dog.
We have cats, beautiful cats, just waiting for someone to love. Come see this lovely longhair and others. They’re all looking for that special someone.
They’ll be waiting for you at the Susquehanna County Humane Society Shelter in Montrose, (570) 278–1228.
Greetings from Turnpike Terrace.
We’ve been playing dominoes quit a lot lately and really enjoying it. Also, we’ve been playing bingo, and Rena finally won! We told her she would, eventually.
We have a lot of Christmas decorations around here – the trees are up, the outside lights over the lobby doors are up and the apartment doors are very festive looking. It looks so bright and cheery up here!
Some of us went to the tree lighting ceremony in Susquehanna. It was nice and quite a lot of people showed up. The kids and the rest of the groups did a great job.
Two ladies came and showed us how to do container gardens. We selected three plants for each one and received a basket and soil to put it together; they came out really nice.
We got word that the kids who received the Christmas mittens at the Santa Claus breakfast liked them. Well, kids, we had a great time doing them.
We had a really nice Christmas party up here on December 10. We even got our pictures taken with Santa Claus. We had a lot of door prizes and the garden club donated pretty plants for our tables. Thanks to them. It was a nice time for us all. We had about 50 people attending and Marsha’s family served us. Thanks, girls.
We enjoyed a Hobbs’ family concert up here; what beautiful music. Robin sang a lot of Christmas songs and she had her daughter, Sarah sing a few songs – we all even sang along on some! Frank took care of the guitar music and the sound system. It was a good night and we had refreshments afterward.
For our Brown Bag Day, December 13, we had a full bus going to Roberson Museum, in Binghamton, to see the Christmas trees and the mansion. The trees were beautiful and we really had a good time. It was the first time one of the men up here went with us; Pete had a real good time, so he says.
It was real cold out the day of this writing – lots of frost on the cars. Speaking of cars, thanks to Jerry and Pete for doing a lot of snow cleaning off the cars.
We had a little surprise party for Eileen; she will be leaving for England for a couple of weeks. We all wish her good luck and a really good time.
We had Jeffrey Keyes visit us for a nice time with the organ and beautiful Christmas music. We really enjoyed it. Thank you, Jeffrey.
It’s nice to see Red Cleveland back here and doing well.
Our hearts go out to Ted Gordon’s family.
Everyone seemed to have a really nice Christmas. I know I did. I spent it with my children, grandchildren and friends at Robin and Frank’s home.
Well, it’s the new year! We all wish everyone a very Happy New Year from Turnpike Terrace.
