Hi-Desert Star Column, November 24, 2016

Our little Community Potluck Buffet took place last Saturday, November 19th, the weekend before Thanksgiving. Our very own Bob Deloyd attended this gourmet event at the Copper Mountain Mesa Community Center.

Here’s what he said:
“I went to Potluck with my rice and cookies - I can’t cook. Dyan Carroll and her mom, Dorothy Jacobsen showed us their culinary skills with a delicious spread of salmon patties, turkey stuffing, coleslaw, cheddar cheese broccoli and carrot cake. Mary Koval and her daughter Chris van Nortrick stirred up some mighty tasty stew. Susie Gardner tended bar and handed out out non-alcoholic Shirley Temples and Roy Rogers. Dave brought some Barbecue beans that were to die for: if you ate too many of them! It was Mary Koval’s and Dave King’s Mom’s birthday and we all got to sing Happy Birthday twice. There were around twenty hungry folks who showed up.” 
Thank you, Bob, good to hear your voice!

Happy Birthday felicitations to all You November Birthday Celebrators out there and hugzzzz to Mary and Aggie! While we’re in such a festive mood, here’s wishing us all a lovely Thanksgiving Celebration. From our neck-o’-the-sands to yours: Gobble gobble and Tofu tofu - may you have lots to be thankful for!

We are all very thankful our beloved Jim is here with us this year. We will be enjoying a liquid Turkey dinner, so Jim can ingest the meal via his feeding tube, which goes directly into his stomach. He can’t taste anything, but his nose tells him it’s delicious. It’s all good, he’s gained over ten pounds and we are thankful, yes indeedee!

By the way our new Copper Mountain Mesa Board of Directors line-up is: Ken Sitz - President; David King and Kip Fjeld - 1st & 2nd Vice-presidents; Rohini Walker and Christian Camargo - co-Secretary; Tim Atzei, Jay Babcock and Stephanie Smith - Directors; with Mary Helen Tuttle as appointed Treasurer.
