Last evening we welcomed 2009 with a new years eve party. Around seven p.m. or so, about fifty of us park residents gathered in the clubhouse for snacks & drinks.
We began with a scavenger hunt that Pat Schumacher had organized. Those of us who wished to play lined up and counted off like we used to do in high school gym class to chose up teams of six people each. And then armed with a list that Pat handed out off we went. To the amusement of the rest of us, the members of the winning team were each awarded a prize of a roll of toilet paper.
After that we attacked the "Goodies Table" and settled in for drinks and conversation. And later on we turned the lights down low and had music from the Jukebox for dancing. Of course because we are all "Seniors" everyone was partied out by about eleven p.m. and by eleven thirty all had gone home.
After all, the ball had dropped in Times Square at ten, Arizona, time and that was good enough for us!
We're looking forward to a great 2009 and good riddance to 2008.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOURS
