It wasn’t snowing or below zero on Feb. 13 for the Soups and Sweets lunch at the North Riverside Village Hall. But there was a full house of mostly seniors who got to enjoy different soups, rolls, coffee, punch and plate of Valentine sweets.

They were served by Recreation Director Penny Devin, Denise, Nina, Romy and Julie, who led bingo and ran around like a teenager. The gals personally served anyone needing help with their trays and drinks — they were great.

The gals were all cute and bright-eyed and full of positive personality. With a ratio of 10 gals to each guy, what else could you ask for?

Everyone left with a smile and sun in their hearts. And lo and behold, the sun was out for a while when everyone left. What a great afternoon. Thanks so very much to all who made it possible.
