Good people make for special times

Valentine's Day was a very busy time at the Knickerbocker Apartments. Bay Presbyterian Church hosted a soup and salad meal for us which consisted of two kinds of soup and salad and red party hats that the children made. Everyone had lots of fun and we'd like to thank the group for coming out in this cold weather with a delicious meal, lots of goodies and a ton of enthusiasm.

On another day we we had homemade quiche prepared by the one and only Mark, one of our favorite cooks. He's a volunteer who lives at the Knickerbocker and gives freely of his time and talent for his neighbors. Well done, Mark. Great quiche. After eating the quiche we were treated to a wonderful barbershop quartet courtesy of the Bay Barbershop. Our festive meal was topped off by dishes of ice cream.

The ice cream was purchased that morning. Our rather small freezer could not accommodate the giant-size container so it was decided since the weather was in the single digits the container would be stored outside. Big mistake. The weather turned warmer and the ice cream became the consistency of soup. Now this soup was definitely delicious, easy to swallow but a little drippy. I think we needed extra napkins and maybe a soup spoon.

Valentine's Week was really extra special this year for the residents of the Knickerbocker. Again, a huge thank you to all who made it possible.
