November Bulletin

No sun—no moon—no morn—no noon,
No dawn—no dusk—no proper time of day,
No warmth—no cheerfulness—no healthful ease…

Thomas Hood (1779 – 1845)

We are hoping that this year’s November won’t be quite so bleak as that!  What with our Thursday, November 8th, evening Open House, and Thanksgiving coming our way, Hillside’s November promises excitement and cheer.  All events below can be found under the Hillside website’s calendar tab.

Family Film Night 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Ruggles of Red Gap

This hilarious movie tells the story of a staid English butler–played by the great Charles Laughton–gambled away by his lord and master in a poker game to Egbert Floud, a wealthy American bumpkin from Red Gap, Washington. How will Ruggles, the gentleman’s gentleman, adapt to the wild and woolly West? Join us to find out!  All Hillside families, friends and staff are invited. (This brilliant comedy is one of Jean’s personal favorites–he gives it five stars!)
