Island adventures

By Kathleen Mitchell: Senior Coordinator | Dec 14, 2012

I surely Ho-Ho-hope that this last entry for 2012 finds everyone perfectly positive and staying happy and healthy for the holidays. We have a few more wonderful activities planned for you this week and then we will have the week of Christmas and New Year's off. There may be activities planned, but you should check with your individual sponsors. I hope that you have had a Happy Hanukkah and I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I will greet you in the New Year with vim and vigor! Don't forget that the contest is still going and you still have time to earn points for the big prize money!

Christmas Cookies, Carols and Caravan: Do you ever want to see all the Christmas lights lit up at night but don't want to go out driving? Then call us. We will pick you up at your door and bring you to the Community Center to nibble on cookies and hot chocolate, and to sing some Christmas songs with our very own Betty Fitzpatrick on the ivories. Next you will be driven around the island by Santa Sam himself, to see the lights! Then we will safely deliver you back to your home after a fun filled evening.
