New Years in Springfield and Ocean City
 GeorgeFamily Gallery


This year's after Christmas get-together at the Landons was originally scheduled for the Saturday 12/30. With forecasters predicting a 100 year blizzard for the region, the lunch was rescheduled for New Years Day. Although the snowstorm did not live up to expectations, the weather was better on New Years.

Tuddy and Howard hosted a buffet luncheon for the group that included Florence, Esther and Ruth from 516, Mizza, Ed, Bette and Rachel, Ken and Judy, Ronnie and her friend Bill. Lunch had a Middle Eastern flair with assorted pita sandwiches, cheese and caviar, hamime and pakhlava.

After lunch, Ruth sat down at the piano for a rousing hymn sing with many old favorites. The trio of Esther, Ruth and Tuddy favored the group with several selections at the end. A good time was had by all.

Meanwhile down in Ocean City, the Mark Landon's, Blumenstocks and friends celebrated New Years with fun by the snowy beach, a rare sight indeed.
