Now that we have our beautiful new dining room to enjoy, let’s fill the Open Table with some of our newest Casa residents any Thursday or Saturday evening at 6:00 pm. May I suggest that long-time residents call their new resident acquaintances and invite them along as Open Table guests? However, here is a special notice to those who have recently joined us: we’d love to have you sign the Notebook yourselves and come ahead for a fun dining evening. That way, we’ll really be prepared to welcome you properly. Call me with any questions please! - Pat Moylan, 8131.
