Three Parties, two were Super Bowl parties Kenny and Debbie O’Connell hosted their annual Neighborhood Super Bowl Party on Sunday. Another gathering was at the Tim Marsolis home who hosted a Superbowl party for Bruce and Cathy’s Halloran family.

Mary Jean Halloran hosted a cozy midwinter gathering on Sunday with a helping hand from daughter Margaret. Among the guests were a few Halloran family members, John “Tar”,  Gert, Tim and Sue, Terrance and Dawn. The family gathers often to consult about Tar’s care, this time they made it a party.

The Nathan and Kara Olson family have great news. They are preparing for the pitter- patter of a little baby boys feet the first week in June.  Eliza is 7, and Anja, 4. Lets pray for a happy, healthy baby with as much of-the-Dickens in him as his father has.

Have a good week, folks.
