This is the last article of the year and I wanted it to be special. Typically, I write a New Year’s article with an appeal to honor our veterans. Of course that is true, but this year is such an anomaly that all of us deserve to be honored. This has been a year like no other. Masks, social distancing, essential workers, COVID testing, Zoom gatherings. All of this is a part of today’s lexicon.
Yet we, as resilient Americans, find a way to go on. The third Annual Harbor Hills Festival of Lights Cart Parade was both an inspiration and a glowing success with a record number of entries. Best Golf Cart Décor went to Patti and Al Anglis. Best Overall Home honor was bestowed on Jim and Linda Roark for their gorgeous display. Special thanks to Cindy Sammons-Chancellor, Carol and Lee DiDomenico, Theresa Morris and all the volunteers whose hard work made this sparkly, holiday event so much fun.
The donations from the Harbor Hills Poker Golf Cart Rally were provided to a local family of five for Christmas. Gifts were chosen by Kim Smith and made the holiday very special for this deserving family. Thanks to the generous club members who made this possible.
The holiday season can be a difficult time for many who are experiencing loneliness or missing a family member or pet. Especially vulnerable are those with disabilities, illnesses or few family contacts. Be there for anyone who needs someone to talk with or anyone needing assistance. The New Year will bring new opportunities and another chance to get it right. Be grateful for what we have. Laughter and joy are the most effective prescriptions for happiness. From our Harbor Hills community to yours, Happy New Year, 2021!
