On Tuesday evening, Dec. 31, Lynn Spohrer and the Coombs House Inn hosted an open house to celebrate the recovery of husband Bill Spohrer from a recent illness. She said she wished to thank the entire community for their concern and prayers during Bill’s recovery. The event featured lots of champagne and food and the “Oyster Drop,” which the Coombs House said will become a new tradition, bigger and brighter next year. As the new year neared, a net filled with hand painted oyster shells and silver ornaments was launched from the second story balcony of Coombs House and greeted with cheers by celebrants as it plummeted to the lawn.
