Thanks go out this week to Christine Wiecek who decorated our Christmas tree in the lobby. This is the best our tree has ever looked and it was a shining beacon during our spectacular holiday party last week. Thank you Christine, for replacing the broken lights and making the tree a welcoming sight during this season of peace and harmony. You are appreciated!
Merry times to one and all. Gather with enthusiasm, enjoy everyone, and may a little quiet reflection benefit your mind. See you in 2020!
