Cabbage rolls and jazz make for special evening at the Knickerbocker

If you happened to be one of the fortunate visitors last week who came to sample Miss Lydia's cabbage rolls and mashed potatoes, you left the Knickerbocker wishing you could take the whole kettle home with you! She is a straw boss in the kitchen, and informed activities director Cheryl, and all the wonderful volunteers, that she wanted it "her way or no way"! However the result was perfection.

No one went home hungry and wonderful music was provided by the K Five – five terrific gentlemen, all residents of the Knickerbocker Apartments in Bay Village. Mr Ron is a seasoned veteran of the tuba. He has played great jazz for many years, many of the pieces being well-known hymns. This evening much material was to celebrate Veterans Day, and being thankful for the men and women who serve our country, and the brave souls who died for the United States of America.

The loving fellowship all of us shared stirred our hearts, and to see all standing with hands over hearts, giving our all to the strains of "God Bless America" and the "The Star Spangled Banner." This really was another evening to celebrate.
