Doesn't the smile on these lady's faces make you want to hang out with them? You just know they're having a good time together!
Sisters, Joanell Zawaski (left) and Janet Murray (middle) brought their  cousin, Sallie King (right) for her first visit to The Village Shoppes recently, for which we are very grateful. But, here's what we think...since Joanell and Janet were brought here a few years ago for their first visit by a friend (that's you, Pat Telander), and Joanell and Janet brought Sallie here for her first visit, it's up to Sallie to continue the tradition of bringing someone that's never been here before! We're waiting Sallie!!! 

(We know it's a long drive from Chicago, ladies, but we can't wait to see all of you again soon!)
