As previously mentioned in the past write-ups, Grand Horizons has lunch connoisseurs on the second Friday of every month. This was first started several years back by Fred and Sam Sage and still continues to this day. On April 8, approximately 40 people met at Beef O’ Brady’s and had a fantastic lunch. All the people that attended had a terrific time, and the service was extraordinarily good. The menu was quite extensive and varied, and everything came out perfectly. The waitresses were so nice that they offered to take a picture of the entire group. The hosts for this luncheon were Tom and Laurie Carter, and Andy Gisondi and Del O’Hara. They did a fine job in arranging this luncheon, and our sincere thanks go out to them.
On April 13, there was a taco bowl dinner in the community center. While the hosts were Andy and Margaret Castonguay, they had help which included Ron and Joyce Bell, Linda Rogers, and Fred and Pat Mengel. Once again, they all had specific jobs to do, and it was done to perfection. The meal consisted of the meat in a taco shell with condiments such as sour cream, olives, onion, diced tomatoes, cheese, lettuce and salsa. The condiments were added by each person according to their tastes. For dessert, they had Bundt cakes in either chocolate or lemon.
Approximately 90 people showed up at our community center for a pancake breakfast on April 16. Before tables were called to receive their breakfast, Jim Sinner said a blessing. The breakfast, which consisted of blueberry pancakes, regular pancakes, sausage and French toast, was yummy and a nice change from previous pancake breakfasts. There were syrups placed on each table. Because this was the last one of the season, there was a huge gathering. Rosie Semian was the hostess,with several helpers. The helpers were Colleen Crandall, Tom Carter, Mary Heim, Dave Heim, Chuck Carlson, Linda Rogers and Diane Taggart. Since they worked on this breakfast before, everyone knew exactly what to do and it ran along smoothly.
