Pre-Valentine's Party

Chocolate Fountains, Fresh Fruit, and Cheese Hor doeuvres were served up sweet and fresh at our first Pre-Valentine's Day Party and Poetry Contest this past Tuesday, February 13th.

We were thrilled to see so many people out and enjoying themselves in our building courtyard and even happier that so many were able to attend the poetry contest as well!

It was a very difficult contest to pick the runners up for, and we received many last minute entries, but in the end we narrowed to down to two contestants each in the Most Romantic and Most Creative categories, and one in the Best Overall.

Hatsumi Takahashi of JTB took home the grand prize for Best Overall poem and won a $200 gift certificate for flowers from Paul Robertson Floral.

Andrea Edwards from Topica won in the Most Creative category and took home a bottle of Piper Heisdeick Brut Champagne.

And Maggie Meredith-Ryan of Benefit Cosmetics scored a Godiva Valentine's Heart of chocolate and truffles for her win in the cateogry of Most Romantic.

The winning poems are featured below for your reading pleasure.

We'd also like to recognize the following people who won honorable mentions for their submissions and took home a small box of Godiva chocolates: Laura Garcia of Kato, Feder & Suzuki, Joe Rosado of Topica, and Mark Luhn of Jeffrey's Toys.

Thanks for helping to make our event a great success with your attendance and your entries to our contest! We hope that you enjoyed the food and your fellow tenant's poetry, and will consider entering yourself in our contest next year.
Do you remember when we met, the first time?
– by Hatsumi Takahashi of JTB International

Do you remember when we met, the first time?
Your pretty smile stole my heart and I fell in love with you.

We’ve been together for a long time,
We’ve laughed and cried and enjoyed our life.

Your pretty face has wrinkles, your body has changed,
But you are still beautiful to me.

Thank you darling, for what you’ve done for me.
Now, I am watching your face by the bed, but you don’t speak.

You are still my love and forever in my heart.
Love is a Space Heater
- by Andrea Edwards of Topica

Bitter cold, pouring rain.
I arrive at the Monadnock building, shivering in pain.

On the third floor, I arrive at my station
Thinking of my space heater, in anticipation!

You keep me warm, you keep me dry.
You help me as the days go by.

Whenever I need a solid friend,
It is on you I can depend.

It's 9AM, so let’s go.
Love is a space heater,

Feel the warm air blow!
Valentine’s Bliss
– by Maggie Meredith-Ryan of Benefit Cosmetics

Take a rest today from your everyday grind
But please do not sleep on our love that’s so hard to find

The reality of happiness between me and you
Makes each day on earth easier for me through and through

The moments we share of laughter and love fill me with emotions brand new
That sweep through my mind, reminiscent of sweet dreams come true

Innocence and Beauty instilled in your grin
Your lips as delicate as a rose petal in the wind

My wish for today: to be blessed with one kiss
That would send me off

Into Valentine’s Bliss
