Lisa and I would like to thank you all for being part of the Murder Mystery Luncheon. 

It is so good to laugh and the best is to see you participate in your costumes and to act  your parts. 

Dave Lesson played his role of the captain of the “Old timer athletes” perfectly! Art and  Mark looked awesome in their Saint Patrick Day attire that beat no other. Daisy and  Linda are available to help being bridesmaids if ever you need them. Ed Keeler fit his  part perfectly as the gamer who played video games. Jamie Clute with her big round  glasses made us feel as though she is such a scholar and we know that she is a stickler to  details.  

Last but not least is Steve what can we say but wow! His hair was incredible and his  willingness to be part any crazy idea we come up with is appreciated. 

A special thank you to our murderer Kristen who over sees the Hudson Headwaters mobile unit. 

Many thanks to everyone of you who helped us in gathering costumes to setting tables  to working in the kitchen. We could not have done any of this without your help.
