Helen Swinson, Membership
It took several years of looking for the perfect place to retire. In 2011 we finally decided to settle in the Tano Road area. It was a great choice. Three weeks after we arrived we attended our first Tano Road Nosh. We came with our Membership application and check in hand and a disastrous chocolate cake. My first attempt at high altitude baking. Since that moment I volunteered on the Membership Committee, an excellent way to meet our new neighbors. I have worked on the Security Patrol, helped with the membership data base, participated in TRA mailings, worked behind the scenes to prepare the Neighborhood Noshes, and was the honored recipient of the Rich Higgins Award.
