In memory of Hoda Shore: Hoda would have celebrated a birthday in March. She was an active volunteer who worked the gift cart and assisted on the lunch line. Scrabble players remember Hoda as a fervent and regular player who played with a deep love of the game and friendly companionship. Her quick wit and warmth are remembered fondly. We may honor her memory by reaching out; we imagine her giving a greeting and sharing a puzzle.
