Kismet Pasta Dinner:  the best ever!

Text & photos by Bradlee


There certainly were more people and they all seem to be having such a wonderful time.  Joan pointed out that the KFD Auxiliary had moved the date from October to late September.  The weather was gorgeous.  Perhaps, also, it was a feeling that after all we had been through this past year; it was something of a miracle that we could be gathered again, with a good part of our community rebuilt.  Whatever, it was great.  The net take was more than doubled from last year.  On behalf of all, Patti R. expressed her gratitude for the community support.

          Doors opened at 6:  By 7, the meeting hall was crowded with people meeting and greeting and standing in line.

The 50-50 raffle was a big hit pulling in $1500.  In Kismet tradition, an innocent child – Tess Lambe – was chosen to draw the winning ticket.  Carl claimed the prize --  representing Al Cella.  Who’s Al Cella? Oh, that Al Cella from Fair Harbor.


Neil enthusiastically sold tickets, helped by Vic & Rose
