Kofa Happenings – Bill & Sharon


Cold and rain, rain and cold have been the orders for this week and last. It
hasn’t really dampened the enthusiasm of folks here though, with lots going
on in the park.

American Thanksgiving was celebrated in fine style with a fabulous dinner
for about 120 hungry souls.

The Rainbow singers paid us an early December visit. Kids ranging from four
to fourteen put on a very fine show with lots of laughs and good fun!

We attended a Chapter 7 luncheon at the Elks Club in Yuma that saw about 70
happy Escapees enjoy rich fellowship and good food.

Kathy and Wayne from Golden B.C. hosted a small outside dinner of gourmet
magnitude that was hardly dampened by the +7C weather, and rainfall that
broke a day’s record going back to 1902. Hors d’oeuvres from the
Mediterranean and Spain, mixed Greek salad with interesting dressings and
sunflower seeds, salmon stuffed with Pesto sauce served with a vegetable
medley, and cheesecake for dessert. Coffee and Kahlua followed. Wow!!

The Salvation Army Angel tree was packed with gifts for the less fortunate
kids, including four bicycles!

There have been perpetual rotating happy hours,  Saturday breakfasts, daily
crafts, evening card games, a parade of lights and we have yet to face the
challenges of Christmas and New Year activities!

Life is good!

  1. If they do go on the road we will host a stop in Calgary. So good to hear from you and the news from the south. Also glad to hear the temperature there is about the same as here. Judi and I went to the Christmas Happy Hour in the old Geezers home. Nothing quite as confusing as a bunch of tipsy seniors. But it was fun. A very Merry Christmas and all the best for a great 2012 to all our Escapee friends. Hugs, John and Judi

  2. Thanks for all the news from Kofa. Sounds like a fine time. Oh, by the way, do Kathy & Wayne take their Amazing Food Show on the road? We’d love to have them come for a visit 🙂
