The Sisters at Salem Heights know how to celebrate! They had a Valentine’s Day Friendship Tea on Feb. 14, with tea, cookies, scones and other desserts, along with sharing stories about love and friendship. On Feb. 28 they had a Mardi Gras celebration. Sister Bernice Krieg found the baby Jesus in the King Cake, so she was crowned the Mardi Gras queen. They also played a detective game while enjoying some coffee.
