NATIONAL NIGHT OUT CELEBRATION
By Muriel Simonson
Cook Carefree Living hosted National Night Out from 4 to 6 pm this evening,
August 2, 2016. Residents, their families, friends & neighbors enjoyed a
lovely evening together . The staff served a delicious meal of brats & hot
dogs with condiments, chips, watermelon, strawberry short cake, coffee and
refreshing lemonade. Tables were set up in the parking area shaded from the
heat by the building. People enjoyed the good food, visiting, and listening
to and at times singing along with The Hutter Bunch as they provided
instrumental and vocal music.
The members of the group are Smoke Weatherton on harmonica and J.J. Johnson
on mandolin, both of Cook, Ralph Isaacson of Iron on fiddle, Laverne
Hiestercamp on mandolin and banjo from Gheen, Darwin Aler, vocal and guitar
and Richard Vandervort, guitar, both from Virginia. Completing the group is
Art Maki on bass, the only member of the group from Hutter! They will be
performing in Cook again at the August 17th. Wednesday at Music in the Park
from 6 to 8:30 pm.

Out. Orr Carefree Living Center also hosted a National Night Out
