This past Saturday morning about 20 residents of Pleasant Grove Estates, Lawrence Kansas got together for a neighborhood gathering. Those attending the party enjoyed catching up with what's been going on in each others lives, the sharing of stories about the neighborhood and indulging in some really fabulous foods. This party was hosted by the gracious hostess, Cathy Wolfe.
Cathy said she finds great joy in hosting parties. In my opinion she is an expert and at 83 years young, she's certainly got the experience to back that assertion. Cathy had a bit of help from her daughter Jean Turvey and her dear neighbor, Nancy Jaeger.
I've been around this great neighborhood for over 15 years now and have had the pleasure of attending many of these gatherings. Many of the residents feel it is not only fun getting together once or twice a year, but they also know how important it is to have those close relationships with neighbors you can count on when the need arises.
I love my neighborhood and my Pleasant Grove neighbors. I'm looking forward to the next gathering at Brian's place. I can't wait to see his new kitchen and his outdoor fireplace.
