My deepest condolences to the family of Penny and to the red arrow family as well. My fiancee' and I would try our best to come to the red arrow dinner once in a while for a date night. We enjoyed the food as well as the staff. Of course we haven't been able to go there much as we did back when we lived in new hampshire. We live down south in Georgia. We did have the pleaser to met Penny who was a very sweet caring person. God bless

RIP Penny! I cannot believe you're gone. I just saw you at the Red Arrow after not having seen you in about 45 years. I have many fond memories growing up with you in Rock Rimmon.

God-speed to the family. It's a horrible time especially with Christmas approaching. I share your grief. Put your hope in The Lord (Romans 10:9-13).

Penny was the sweetest and understanding person at the Red Arrow. I used to go every day but I left for personal reasons. I would return occasionally with my famous Chex Mix that she loved. She did love lunch the goldfish, her cat and of course her partner and best friend, Christopher. The Arrow will never be the same. She personified-the Red Arrow experience. I will miss Penny!
