Personal Notes:
The Casons (Mac & Jesse), Bowmans (Dorothy & Bill) and the Birds (Frank, Wilmot, Nancy, Joe & Candace) aka "the Poverty Hill Gang" would gather Christmas Day at the Casons. This is the Eggnog that was made under Mac's supervision. Legend has it that a 2 year old boy sang a spirited version of Jingle Bells after a sip of this famous drink. Being allowed to help in the preparation was a true "Right of Passage" into adulthood.
