Saturday evening we went to a birthday party for Swati, who works in the music department. We enjoyed visiting with friends from previous years as well as new ones. People arrived from 6:30 until after 9:00. Swati's mother had cooked a variety of delicious curries.
Woodstock School board meetings were held last weekend, so there were lots of visitors around. This was the last meeting for the president, Eleanor Nicholson. She had served as interim principal in 2011, then as president of the board since 2012. There were multiple farewell dinners, assemblies, etc., culminating in a staff tea on Tuesday afternoon.
