The first Saturday in February rolled around, and approximately 106 people gathered at the community center for an egg n’ bag breakfast. It definitely seemed like a large crowd, and everyone was socializing. The breakfast was hosted by Jim and Judi Leitzke and many helpers, which included Galen and Sue Parker, Joan Lawrence, Doris Sutfin, Vic and Lynne-Rae Dyson, and Clayton and Carol George.
I know I have said it before, but without all the people volunteering, we wouldn’t have things run so smoothly and efficiently.
It started off with Galen Parker saying grace before the meal, and you could literally hear a pin drop.
Once grace was said, tables were called up so guests could prepare their omelets. This is done from an assortment of ingredients that includes bacon, ham, cheese, onions, mushrooms, green peppers and Jalapeno peppers. Once you get all the ingredients you desire and everything is put in a bag, you go over to another counter where the bags are cooked.
The end result, sometime later, is a delicious omelet. There also are hash-brown potatoes, sausage gravy and biscuits, plus coffee and orange juice.
In addition to the lovely breakfast, Gary Wilcox and Chick Shackewyc showed us two promotional videos of the acts that are coming to Grand Horizons. In other words, it was a taste of what’s to come.
The first video was of Rich Wilson, and he will be coming to Grand Horizons on March 4. The other video was of Eric Kearns, an impersonator, who will be coming at a later date.
The videos looked good, and we sure hope Marty and I will be available to attend both of these shows.
We had our usual entertaining game of dominoes on Feb. 6. Once again, there were several tables and much fun. We always look forward to this night.
Twenty ladies from Grand Horizons attended a luncheon at Ford’s Garage, in Brandon, on Feb. 7. This luncheon was hosted by Rosie Semian.
The restaurant was quite unique, as it has cars to greet people as they enter the parking lot, and tires that were lined up on a top shelf inside the restaurant.
The menu was quite varied, and since a birthday was being celebrated, ice cream on a brownie was served to June Weinle. It was so good that she ate most of it.
Everything was delicious, and everyone went home happy and content.
