In the summer of 2013

My husband and I sold our home of 22 yrs. and moved to WA. We found a temporary place in Sultan and began exploring the area.
Everywhere we went when someone found out we were new to the area they quickly said, "Welcome to Washington!" It made us feel good, however, other than our kids, we still didn't know anyone we didn't do business with.
One day in Oct. that year, we happened into the East County Senior Center. We inquired about playing pinochole, and as luck would have it one of the players was right there and quickly encouraged us to join in. We played 2 times and decided this was the place for us, so we joined the Center.
In Dec. of 2013, we bought a home nearby. Now we are at the Center frequently and have many friends we see outside of the Center as well as at the Center. One of the merchants we met early on was surprised to see us with a group of friends. We said, "Monroe has been good to us!"

Do you have a story to tell?
We would like to post it here with many others.
