Memory from Patti Poirier

Memory from Patti Poirier

Some years ago, 2013 I think, Betty Ashe came into town and some of us arranged a lunch meeting at Palermo’s within a couple of days. Diane Witt joined us at the very last minute, and we were about to leave because we hadn’t heard from her. She had been to Ft. Wayne, IN that

November 13, 2016 – Holiday Brunch

November 13, 2016 – Holiday Brunch

This was a smaller party than usually. We had fun, but overshadowing the lightheartedness of a Christmas party including Thanksgiving were the serious events that Sue went thru which were our major concern and topic. By the 13th, Sue was much better, but I wasn’t supposed to tell anyone that the Docs had told the

2016 Girl’s Beach Weekend – Sept 9-11

2016 Girl’s Beach Weekend – Sept 9-11

Rocky start for the Hurley car. This morning’s down-to-the-minute schedule wrecked as soon as the car backed out under the garage door. Hyped dog in the back seat, luggage and wine in the trunk – and the TIRE PRESSURE light on! Damn. Why today?? The schedule was supposed to be: 1. Dog to the vet

Carlucci Get-Together – August 7, 2016

Here are about 30 pictures of the get-together on August 7th. As you will see in all but the posed group pictures, it was the typical grade school configuration of all the girls on one side of the table, and all the boys on the other side. Some things never change. Those of us that

Architectural River Cruise – June 26, 2016

OH no! Clouds – Rain – THUNDER!! That was the wake-up call at 7:00 AM on Sunday, June 26th. Fret – “What do they do if it’s raining?” “Do they cancel the boat??” “Will we get struck by lightning???” “Do we get a refund????”. Then, s-l-o-w-l-y the clouds moved off to Indiana and the humidity

Palermo’s Ladies Night – May 14, 2016

Saturday May 14th proved to be perfect for an impromptu, informal Ladies Night which began as an opportunity for Diane Witt O’Connell to deliver a few tiny trees to Patti Duffy Poirier for her garden. Not to miss an opportunity for fun, Patti called the irregular regulars and a night at Palermo’s was born. Below

April 24, 2016 Event – Pinstripes

April 24, 2016 Event – Pinstripes

It was a cozy event that five of us attended on a beautiful sunny day. First was lunch, followed by a killer game of bocce ball. Only three wanted to play, so it was Patti and Sue against Roger. Of course the girls won. A very fun and not too demanding a game that is
