Coleman House Celebrates the New Year!

Posted: January 3, 2013

I had the distinct honor of attending the Coleman House New Year’s Day brunch on New Year’s Day!  I can’t imagine a nicer way to start the year.  This event was organized by the residents themselves—and boy, do they know how to throw a party! 

  • There were ~80 of our residents, dressed up in lovely party clothes.   Everybody looked great!  The big smiles on their faces added to the look.
  • The food was fabulous—lox and bagels and whitefish and kugel and mimosas.  Ideal.
  • The tables had lovely tablecloths, flowers for a centerpiece and nice-looking dishes and cutlery.
  • There was a pianist playing lovely tunes throughout the event.  Some tables were singing, too.
  • As I stopped at every table to give new year’s wishes, people wanted to tell me how much they love living at Coleman House, how they’ve made such wonderful friends at JCHE, how everyone who works at JCHE is top notch and responsive and kind and thoughtful and talented.

I was so thrilled to be invited to this delightful celebration. This was an afternoon of community-in-action and it may well keep me smiling throughout all of 2013!
