Cindy is the first Lambertvillain I met after officially signing the lease on our apartment. My partner and I went to the local grocer to buy a celebratory cookie, and Cindy happened to be working the register that night. She happily received my enthusiasm about our imminent move and gave it back in kind. We traded stickers we’d made, and, not too long after, Cindy became my first sticker club member in Lambertville, followed closely by Hannah and Jess.
