Friends and neighbors enjoyed Sippin' in the Sunset...

...except when we had to cancel

The totem pole went up...

and fell down...

and is up again!

Holiday donations were made

                    and the neutral ground was decorated

It was a very good year!

Love thy neighbor, love thy neighborhood!
