Hoping the ‘new’ year truly brings amazing newness

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

Over the past several months, due to pandemic restrictions and precautions, we conducted our mini survey online. For this issue, however, we were back on the street! We visited Corner Perk in Bluffton to ask: “What is something truly new that you hope for or aspire to in the New Year?”

Virginia Donofrio, Kissimee, Fla.: “Enjoying my new house and having family close.”











Terry Bero, Kissimee, Fla.: “Enjoying a new home.











Gayle Kruemmel, Fredericksburg, Va.: “Going on more new ‘good’ adventures.”











Frank Donofrio, Kissimee, Fla.: “Being close to our family.”











Kim Hocker, Moss Creek: “Seeing a normal life as such, where you can go out to dinner and enjoy being at my usual seat at the Corner Perk.”
