Tuesday 1999 - What a day with Patty Lynch, Jo Ellen Uhl, Grant Douglass and then to Cape May at 4pm for a tour of Mt. Pleasant. There were 15 of us. Board Members and guests, a big facility, though we were not impressed with the meal – small cup of soup, skimpy Greek salad with choice of Beef Stroganoff or Cheezy Chicken and rice and dessert. Sarah Boehn is the Adm. there. She was at Wilmington Extended Care for 10+ years, still looks young, though she has 14-year-old son. The "Chef" there looked like a high school gal but said she had been there 10 years. Had email from Mares about next July at Shenandoah for four nights starting 7/1/00. Got two new lamp bowls [bulbs?] at Ace Hardware.
