Pictures From A Party

If you were among the 100 or so folks who made it to Compo for yesterday evening’s 4th annual “06880” blog party: thanks!

It was a wonderful evening: fun, relaxed, beautiful, filled with very cool people, very good food, and very great weather.

If you could not join us, here’s the next best thing.

PS: We hope to see you there next year!

Bart Shuldman brought a pair of dueling beverages: Trump Tonic ("Make America grape again") and Hillary Hooch ("classified flavor").

Honoring the party with "06880" hats -- well, 3 of the 4, anyway.

A breeze played havoc with the balloons, provided by Jennifer Hershey and Mary Hoffman. But the sunset was as spectacular as always.

    GREAT PARTY, Dan! Wonderful to see old friends (Mike & Sally, Miggs) and meet new – all happy, interesting & fun. You’re super to arrange all this, even the weather & ambiance. Following your blog has added spice to my life. Thanks!

    • Thank YOU, Bonnie, for making the long trip here. I loved chatting — and seeing all your great memorabilia. I’m glad you’re part of the “06880” community!

    As always, we managed to land a P&Z meeting right on top of the annual 06880 event – so sorry to have missed it (again), hope to get to it next year. Thanks again for all you do for our local community Dan.

    Beautiful evening, great location, interesting people, old friends and good conversations, thanks very much Dan! Often wonder how many important things in town might just slide by without you.

    My drink would be a bottle of Bernie: “Craft Beer Revolution”
    Cheers!
