Thank you for paying our bill, stranger

It was quite the holiday surprise!

The ladies on our retirement home’s monthly surprise lunch outing got an extra special surprise on Dec. 26th! We were finishing our brunch at Krain Corner Inn restaurant, and requested some “doggie bags,” when our server informed us that a gentleman at another table had paid all of our bills! Just wanted to thank our anonymous good samaritan. (Our server said you are a local/regular!) You made all of these ladies’ week!
