The Wake Robin community and special guests enjoyed a beautiful evening of good company, incredible food and fond memories on Friday, September 20th. As Jazz music by local band, Greenbush, filled the air, guests dined on hors d’oeuvres and reminisced about the early years of the community. Guests included Corporate Board members, past Management staff, and members of the Shelburne community, as well as current residents and their families. There were smiles and hugs all around as friends greeted each other warmly and caught up with one other. Dessert was served following a brief, but heartfelt program of acknowledgments and remembrances. A beautiful evening‚Ķ
