It was a glorious evening along the banks of the Primrose Creek—and actually in the creek itself, as the 2023 Mill Preservation Committee entertained guests with a brilliantly British affair.
Ellie was an extraordinary person and I can say this because to date I have not met anyone like her. She was kind and thoughtful, pleasant and cheerful, gentle and generous. Everyone who met Ellie got the same impression of her and then remarked, “How did I ever meet such a sweet and lovely lady?”
Jim Stinnett recently passed away at his home in Yardley, Penn., surrounded by family and friends. He was the husband of Carol Stinnett, Art Committee member and former Phillips’ Mill Art Show Chairperson. Jim and Carol were Lathrop Circle members and have, for many years, given an art show award for abstract painting.
Each year, the Phillips’ Mill Community Association’s Board of Directors hosts a party in appreciation of the Lathrop Circle’s additional support of the many art, drama, photography, educational and social programs that help make Phillips’ Mill such a vital part of the larger community.
On Midsummer’s Night (June 24) the Mill lawn was the setting for a merry rendition of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Mill members and their guests dined amid a sparkling, magic forest where lively actors performed a delightfully bowdlerized version of Shakespeare’s popular comedy.
Phillips’ Mill is run by volunteers. Although it goes without saying that we appreciate the work of all of our volunteers every day, we are taking this opportunity to say thank you to a few individuals who have donated so much of their time and energy to the Phillips’ Mill Community Association.
We thank the many volunteers and supporters who helped make 2021 a successful year. Many thanks and best wishes for a warm and wonderful holiday season!
