Well, the weather cooperated nicely for this year’s Coolidge Holiday festivities. We didn’t get there until the Memory Tree lighting, but it looked like a fair number of cars in the parking lot. Since Elaine Gambone played such a vital role with the Memory Tree, Pieter Bowen asked for remembrances of Elaine & there were many. Eric Johnsen turned on the switch to light the tree. Refreshments were served in the Wilder House afterward.

Tyson Ladies Aid provided lunch & snacks at the Wilder for most of the day & everyone seemed to enjoy the good food! Funds will be used for community projects, of which there are many.

Have you heard about the great deal being offered at the Echo Lake Inn? To celebrate Chief Kevin 23 years at the Inn, they are offering a $23 3-course

dinner on Friday evenings until March. It does not apply during Holiday weeks – Christmas/New Year’s week – 12/28 or Feb vacation weeks – 2/15 & 2/22, but that still leaves a number of Fridays. There are 4 entrees from which to choose & you can also register to win the Valentine’s Day Special – all inclusive dinner for 2, plus an overnight stay in the Bridal suite – Jacuzzi, fireplace & breakfast delivered to your room!

Speaking of food, I wanted to thank the Standard for the correspondent luncheon held at Spooners in Woodstock last week. It is always nice to see/meet staff & chat with other correspondents!

I also wanted to pass along a warning from the Department of Children & Families because apparently some folks have been impersonating their staff & startling families by threatening to take their children. Be assured that their staff will always have identification & can only take emergency custody with a court order. I have not heard that any children have been abducted, but it is a concern. Calling 911 is recommended.
