Today we have a great story from Kathleen Chainey, Boston.

They share with us their gingerbread creation that they submitted for their company’s year-end zoom gathering event. With 31 competitors it was a land slide win for Jim Flajnik and Kathe Chainey. Jim and Kathie have been going to the island for well over 25 years and are owners at the Marriott Ocean club. They donated their winnings to the local food bank in Arlington, Massachusetts where they live. Due to Covid-19 they had to reschedule two planned trips in 2020 and one planned trip in 2021.

“We look forward to our return to the island and hope to put our feet in the sand once again in April. Happy New Year! Kathie and Jim.”
