Jim and Cathy Breitenbach and Nancy and Walter Binger hosted an "almost surprise" 80th birthday on Thanksgiving Day at the Bingers' home for their mom, Justyne Breitenbach (whose birthday is actually Nov. 30). The feast was attended by all of Justyne's nieces and nephews, her sister Lucy Mazeski (who will turn 90 years young in January 2010), her cousin Richard from Hempstead and her grandchildren. Also in attendance, and the real stars of the show, were two of Justyne's great-grandchildren, Olivia and Lucas (who turned 1 Nov. 19) Diamond. The main course consisted of three turkeys and a ham, with 18 side dishes prepared by the whole gang. There were even some leftovers for everyone to take home as a reminder of a great affair. Amid all the festivities and well wishes for Justyne, the gang learned how to play LCR (left, center, right), which was a hit. This time pumpkin pie took a backseat for whipped cream, blueberry and chocolate cake, and a round of happy birthday wishes.
Belated happy birthday wishes to Cathy Breitenbach, who celebrated Nov. 25, and to Pat Walsh, Dec. 3. Pat and her friend Christine Mapes are going to celebrate their birthday this year in a special way. They are going to Foxwoods to gamble, swim, soak in the hot tubs and sip some champagne. This celebration will mark a special time of friendship for both of them.
Condolences to the family of longtime resident Molly Roach. Those who knew Molly know she had a heart of gold, was an activist in the school system and the town, and was a woman ahead of her time.
Only 15 days till Christmas.
