Kinsloe House will hold its 76th Anniversary luncheon at noon. Kinsloe House will again step back in time to “Pieces of the Past.” Longtime Kinsloe member, Patty Harris George, wrote a book, and included in the book is a play “Clues to Kinsloe Conduct” or “Who put the Peppersauce in Mrs. Kinsloe’s Parlor?”  The play is going to be reenacted at this birthday luncheon, with current members of Kinsloe House performing the parts. This play was a success in 1961 and should be even funnier in 2014. Come join us for a wonderful luncheon and hilarious play and see some of the members dressed in 1960’s attire.
