Roundup: Isabel Boardman, Challah …

Isabel Boardman is 100 years young today!

The longtime and very energetic Senior Center member is not on a computer. So how about sending her birthday wishes the old-fashioned way? (Kids: That means a card and stamp.)

Isabel’s address is 19 Hills Lane, Westport, CT 06880. Let’s fill her mailbox this week!

Staples High School Class of 1992 graduate Melissa Kirsch has a tasty story in yesterday’s New York Times Morning report.

She uses an end-of-summer (rather than High Holy Days-are-near) hook, to describe her own challah baking experiences.

She neglects to mention Westport’s 2 challah delivery services: Every Home Should Have a Challah, and Challah & Co.

Still, it’s a challah-of-a-g0od picee.

    Lovely idea to send a card! Connecting through a hand-written card is such a heartfelt gift. I hope it’s not tacky for me to invite you to visit the Westport Book Shop where they sell my hand-drawn stationery. Bonus: you will be supporting The Westport Library, too. I’ll start writing my own card to Ms. Boardman today.
