A beloved member of the Mt. Airy community was lost in October. Shadow the cat lived in the 500 block of Westview, and was a frequent visitor to all activities at Summit Church. He greeted toddlers arriving for preschool and older children attending after-school programs. He was pan-denominational, enjoying Presbyterian coffee hour and P’Nai Or shabbat services. He consoled the grieving at funerals and never tired of zoning hearings. He had a fondness for contra dancing and fiddle cases, and appreciated a good turnout on Election Day. Occasionally, he wandered up to Carpenter Lane to monitor the Co-op, dry cleaners and High Point. He enjoyed the best of Mt. Airy and will be missed by many.
