Happy New Year from Crane’s Mill!

Happy New Year to you and yours!

Some fun hats to ring in the New Year

Some fun hats to ring in the New Year

Our residents are ringing in the 2018 in style. First, there’s a special New Year’s Cocktail Party in Towne Square. It’s an annual tradition, complete with passed hors d’oeuvres and a raw bar with ice sculpture.

Then, dinner is served in the Candleberry Dining Room and Heartwood Cafe, where residents are welcome to bring the wine or spirit of their choice.

Finally, the night really takes off with a performance from the Dean Tomanelli Jazz Trio. Mr. Tomanelli has performed at Carnegie Hall, The Rainbow Room, The Plaza Hotel, The Waldorf Astoria, and many other famed venues. Tonight, he brings his talents back to Hinman Hall to show our residents the range of his repertoire (and maybe take some requests, too!).

We hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve, and more importantly, a happy, healthy, and fun year to come.

Check Out Our Residents’ Train Room – A Holiday Tradition

Each year, a group of industrious residents sets up an extraordinary train room for the holidays. Our residents and staff love to visit and marvel at the miniature world our they create.

Complete with 3 working engines, the trains follow twists and turns around a mountainside (with skiers), a lumber mill, brewery, train stations (with eager passengers), residential neighborhoods, a hotel, a downtown, and so much more!

One could spend hours picking out new and exciting to-scale scenes. We were able to snap some photos…enjoy!
