July 4th, 5th, 6th, etc.

The weather was terrific--for about the 14th day in a row! Is this Erie we're in? And our Fourth of July picnic was perfect. About 75 were in attendance, sisters, family members and friends. Some great shots "of the crowd" are on our community website here.

What else would you see if you were with us this week? Here are two things: first, you'd see a lot of guests. Many sisters are here for private retreats and there are families and friends visiting nearly every day. Secondly, you'd see our new small front parlor. Yes, we have a large front parlor, too. The new furniture is compliments of a friend of the community who died recently--way too young--and her brother, knowing her relationship with the community, offered her furniture to us. We chose some lovely pieces and our small front parlor has a new look--courtesy of Barbara's generosity.
