Greetings! Another gorgeous, crisp fall weekend here at the Coast! We had a fabulous day on Saturday, starting with our Autumn High Tea, then onto Jeanne Kimball’s 90th birthday party. What a great turnout! Four of Jeanne’s five kids were able to be here, as well as a few grandkids and a great-granddaughter! Thanks to all who joined us! I’ll be download pictures and getting them up on our website later this afternoon.
