Christine Mapes spent the winter in Florida enjoying the warm weather. She was joined by her husband, Gerry, for two months, during which time they celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary on April 21. Christine then spent time with her father, Clarence Partridge, a Florida resident, enjoying Brighton Casino, playing bingo, and going to the Hard Rock Café and flea markets. They shared good times and reminisced about the good-old days. Christine is looking forward to her father coming up from Florida and staying with her and Gerry for the entire summer here in Riverhead. She also can’t wait to help celebrate his 83rd birthday on May 29.
