Friends of Liza Maio gathered at Lakeside Terrace in Old Forge on Tuesday, July 23 to wish her happiness as she moves to her new home in Utica.
The party of 22 exchanged stories and enjoyed a special cake baked by Ruth Brussel at the bittersweet celebration.
Liza was the last of the original tenants at the apartment complex, which opened in December 1989. At the time she had the opportunity to select the unit of her choice.
Cards or notes of well wishes can be sent to: Liza Maio, The Pines – 3rd Floor, 1800 Butterfield Ave., Utica, NY 13501.
