    Christmas Day Party

    The Christmas Party on the 25th of December at the Senior Center was a success again this year!

    With almost 100 people attending, everyone enjoyed great food, fun, friends, bingo and a visit from Santa.  It was also great to see and talk with Betty, as she has been involved for so many years.

    Thanks to everyone who donated food, money and time for this special day.  A special thank you to: The Bordeau Family who always do the “heavy lifting” for this event; Ben for the turkeys; Hart’s Greenhouse and Florist for the poinsettias for everyone and the Plainfield High School students who wrote a special message for each Senior.  You all made this Christmas special for everyone attending!

    Thank you to everyone who volunteered and helped out!  This has been another great year!

    Happy and Healthy New Year to all.  See you all again next year!
