We're packing for our travels north and we are melancholy at the thought of leaving behind the wonderful friends we made and all the marvelous cultural events available in this area. We especially enjoyed the music venues of every kind, the art exhibits, library presentations, lectures, plays, restaurants, shops, etc. Your area is a cultural Mecca and we have been blessed that you shared it with us. You have listened to a recent, wise adage, "If you build it, they will come," and we have, and will again!
