Thanks to all who wrote for me this week.
Yes, it’s Shirley Kafka. Susan’s being away has given me an opportunity to sneak in and offer a drop of the old “Community Connection.”
Susan left on a much needed vacation on Dec. 2nd. The night before, we had our first bingo of the season. A fun evening was enjoyed by 125 residents. There were several happy smiles of cash winners who undoubtedly will return to reap more rewards. We look forward to the continued success of this game. Join us the first and 3rd Friday of the month.
You are on your feet all morning and afternoon. With a smile, you bring requested butter to the table. You turn and are asked for milk instead of cream. Toast too well done and you are off and running for new lightly toasted bread. It is non-stop. You have done your best and the clientele has told you what a pleasure it is to have you as their server. Then what—you look at your tables. One has left a zero tip. One has emptied their pocket of change and you receive fifty cents. PLEASE remember that Dala is a restaurant and the waitresses and waiters depend on gratuities to supplement their income. Be as generous to them as they are kind to you. Show the appropriate appreciation please.
SATURDAY EVENING AT HUNTINGTON POINTE
It was an emotional evening for many after not having use of our theater since March, 2020. Never did we anticipate it would be close to three years for our opening night.
We didn’t have to stress over weather issues. We were inside in comfortable seats and state of the art equipment. We had a real stage and didn’t have to drag our own chairs from our trunks into the parking lot. What a pleasure!
Dala offered a special opening night dinner in the cafe consisting of various lobster dishes and chicken. It was sold out within a few days. Quotes from residents consisted of “Everything was delicious from the soup to the dessert.” “Wonderful is the word that comes to mind.” “The service was excellent.” Please look for future announcements of special dinner nights.
It was time for Sarge to a sold-out house. Our polite, gracious residents and guests are to be commended for the smooth transition from the lobby to their seats. Those that offered their service assisted everyone who needed help.
Sarge did not fail to delight us with non stop humor and stories of his life.
Again, a couple of comments from residents. “A fabulous evening without ever having to leave HP.” “It was a five star night.”
The “cherry on top” was the post directly from Sarge on his face book page. “The NEW IMPROVED HUNTINGTON POINT PERFORMING ARTS CENTER is state of the art and utterly fantastic….thank you for selling it out….the venue and the people were utterly spectacular…what a grrrreat Saturday night. THANK YOU.”
We look forward to Susan’s return and her complete “To The Point” articles every Friday.
