🎉Happy New Year, Friends!🎊

Happy New Year, Friends!

Exercising in Titanic Memorial ParkWe rang in the New Year with big weather changes:  On Sunday, we spied neighbor Lori Murphy (Because You Can Fitness) leading students in an exercise class in the park in 60-degree weather.  A day later, we saw lots of people and dogs enjoying the winter wonderland that transformed the park a day later.  Some of the trees sustained damage from the heavy, wet snow.  We’ve informed the Park Service so that they can attend to the fallen limbs.
