“Alice’s Restaurant” regulars celebrate Christmas at the Cherryfield Downeast Campus.

This group comes on a regular basis, each Wednesday, to play Bingo, and Mahjong, and celebrate birthdays and holidays. Today, December 6, was their Christmas party.

I love calling this weekly event Alice’s Restaurant. Alice Duston was the inspiration for this weekly gathering.
