Jack & Betty Milliff
I’m not really sure what size Tom’s shoes were, but they are going to be pretty hard to fill. Come to think of it, he always wore sandals. The neighborhood has lost great neighbors, friends, families and assets in Tom and Bobbie. The important thing to remember is that they had a great supporting cast, and we are all still here ready and willing to carry the torch. Since Tom first brought to our attention that they were leaving, the board has been making plans to fill the gaps. The amazing thing is that we really didn’t have to ask for volunteers, they came to us. I believe we have an active board and involved committee members in place that will make St. Anne’s Hill an even more desirable place to live than it already is.
On a quick note, please remember to send in those membership dues. Membership has its privileges.
It is the holiday season and I hope everyone will get the chance to spend time with friends and family. I was fortunate growing up because my parents made a really big deal about Christmas. Whether it was going out cutting down a live tree or driving around Christmas Eve looking at all the lights while Santa visited our house, I always got excited this time of year and still do. Of course it could also be all the time off from work between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Speaking of Thanksgiving (which will be over with by the time you receive this), I would like to pass on some wise words my brother passed on to me some years back, “Eat till it hurts, and then eat a little more”.
Not to mention any names (Tom and Bobbie) or to point fingers (Tom and Bobbie) or to blame anyone (Tom and Bobbie) this newsletter is late as we are now in charge and find ourselves nowhere near ready to be in charge. Though we were prepared and well-trained to take over and have no one to blame but ourselves (like that’s gonna stop us), we ask for your patience. Because of this and the upcoming holidays, there will be no newsletter for January but expect your own personal copy in time for February’s General Membership Meeting. Thanks for your patience, offering of gifts, undying loyalty and understanding over the next few months.
