“There is family. There are friends. Then, there are friends that become family!” said Rina Castanon, pictured center, who hosted her 12th annual ornament exchange luncheon on December 10.
Guests included friends from Castanon’s Forest Park neighborhood; some have attended since the first luncheon in 2010. Each year, neighbors who have moved to other areas come back to Castle Pines for this event and new friends and neighbors are always added to the guest list. Ornaments are exchanged and Santa always makes a visit too.
“I am thankful, grateful and blessed to have these amazing women who bring happiness in my life and inspire me in every way. All successful in their own way, I am in awe of each one of them!” Castanon exclaimed.
