Four Photos and Stories About What We Did in October


Friends at PEP
PEP, aka People Encouraging People, celebrated three important events - Thanksgiving, Veterans’ Day and the 401st anniversary of the signing of the Mayflower Compact. Everyone enjoyed the traditional turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy dinner - at lunch time.

Hikers
One beautiful fall day, we hiked 3.8 miles in Mianus River Park, along the border of Stamford and Greenwich, with 9 members of Darien Men’s association. The leaves were still very colorful, and there were lots of huge glacial rocks.

Thanksgiving Dinner
We gave thanks to God for our many blessings, and we enjoyed Thanksgiving Dinner with Kenyan friends from West Haven. We had not seen them since Thanksgiving in 2019. Their family is larger now – with Beniah, who was born in August.

Admiring the Lion
The Christmas/Holiday Gift Show at Rowayton Arts Center opened the day after Thanksgiving. Marilyn enjoyed volunteering there that afternoon, and seeing friends, many of whom have purchased her photos and note cards in the past.
