Happy New Year to all
Starlighters. We hope you had a good holiday season. Many thanks
to Lorn and Anne Hiller and
Mike and Arlene Kuhn for their
good work in decorating the lobby and Christmas tree. And to
Christy and Tim who did the
red/green lights on the walkways, which added to the holiday
spirit in our otherwise disheveled building.
going to be an abbreviated issue of the Express for a couple of
reasons. Today work is being done on our 4th floor
walkway……laying of concrete decking.
So we are staying
inside, and out of the way of the workmen. A good chance to

application. (The contractor has verified this amount

carts onto the walkways for several additional days afterward,
including wheeled luggage and grocery carts. Damage inflicted to
walkway coatings by owners will be repaired at the owner’s
expense. As of now, the installation schedule is still on
target: walkways for floors 10, 7, 6 and 5 for the 1st
week of Feb and floors 1 - 4 for the 2nd week of Feb.
The contractor has promised to verify these dates by January

mail person, Felicia is being transferred. She tells me that the
post office is moving carriers “up the beach.” Our new carrier,
“Mary”, will begin on January 31.
thanks to the generous person who left the oranges in the
lobby……..there’s no better beverage in the world.
