What's new at the Knick

The Knickerbocker is getting spruced up for the coming holidays. The dining room has brand new sheer curtains. The only person brave enough to climb the tall ladder several times, carrying the freshly ironed curtains, was our building manager, Diana Pickering. Thanks, Diana. We couldn't have done it without you. When the curtains were hung, newly made bows were pinned on the gathered part of the drapes, handmade by Mary Varadi, who has created quilts, bows and other works of art for many years.

The first floor has been completely painted, the rugs in all hallways have been shampooed, windows inside and out have been washed throughout the entire building. A dozen new dining room chairs, complete with arms to assist seniors to exit from the table were donated by Dr. Carol Novak on behalf of resident Marilyn Novak.

All in all, the Knickerbocker Apartments have taken on a brand new look, just in time to welcome the friendly folks from Bay United Methodist Church who provide a complete Thanksgiving meal for residents who will not be able to be with family and friends this Thanksgiving. The wonderful volunteers from Bay Methodist have been coming to the Knickerbocker for many years to celebrate with those residents who might never leave their apartment that day.

Thanks to all who have helped dress up our home. We appreciate everyone's kindness.
