We will have a party on Friday, February 3 to celebrate. There will be music, refreshments, crafts and fun for the kids and special guests to talk about Eastwood’s history. We will pay a special tribute Mrs. Gwendolyn Tulk, who recently passed away at 105, and was one of the Eastside’s oldest living residents.
