Get well wishes go to Marion Calhoun. Hope you are doing better soon.

Hamden game day met on Monday, Jan. 1, to bring in the New Year with friends and neighbors and to enjoy visiting and playing a variety of games. The group met at Wilcoxs’ as the weather was so cold. The next game day is Monday, Jan. 15, at 10 a.m. at the Hamden Town Hall. Everyone is welcome to come and play a game or two regardless of how old you are. On New Year’s Day we enjoyed having Sandy Caruso’s granddaughter

Marisa play pinochle. In months past the Wilcox grandsons have come. They always enjoy having someone play games with them. Nathan really liked Hand and Foot and got the grandparents to teach the rest of the cousins. Snacks and beverages are provided. Many thanks to Ann Gavette who brought ham and cheese as well as turkey sandwiches on New Year’s Day.

The next meeting of the Hamden Senior Citizens is Wednesday, Jan. 24, at noon. This meeting will be at the Delhi Rehabilitation Center (the old Countryside) on Rt. 10. People should bring a dish to pass and table service as usual to have lunch at noon in a meeting room at the Center. After the meal, the group will have a tour of the facility, and Paula Brown, director of community relations, will explain the facility’s offerings and answer questions. For those who don’t want to walk, wheelchairs will be provided. Park by the front door in one of the 18 slots available. If drivers would bring a full carload, that would be helpful. Other parking is also available. This would be a good time to get to see the new facility and find out what the Hamden Senior Citizens group is all about. We welcome any interested person to join us. Normally we meet at the Hamden Town Hall at noon on the fourth Wednesday of the month for a dish to pass luncheon and a program.

Church services for the month of January will be held in the Hamden Church. Services on Sunday, Jan. 14, will be at 11 a.m. with Rev. Patty Wolff leading the service.

Alice Blackman hosted New Year’s Eve at her house with friends Lois McDonald, Minnie Miller, Carol Irwin, Charlie Calhoun, Eleanor Donnelly and Wayne and Karen Marshfield. All had a good time playing cards and eating Alice’s good cooking.
