Golf Tournament Day

Monday, September 24th was our 9th Annual Lyons Ambulance Golf Tournament 
proceeds to benefit the Gorton's Specialty and Cancer Care Center at Addison Gilbert Hospital.
This is the 9th year that I have been helping to organize this tournament as well, through my work.
It is always a lot of work to organize, but we have wonderful and generous sponsors, players and committee members which make the day of the tournament a fun and seamless day.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the day!!

My good friend Maureen Countie Benson
is the singer in the local band Jazzport, and I went
to see them last evening playing at Seaport Grille in Salem MA.
They play/sing both jazz and blues. If you ever get the chance to see them, please do so.
You won't be disappointed...Wonderful Talent!!

Labor Day Vacation

I had a nice four day weekend for Labor Day this year, so
I decided to fly out to Warren, Ohio to visit my Italian relatives - my dad's side of the Family.
On The Sunday that I was there, my cousin Susie and her husband Jack hosted 
an Astolfi Family Reunion...about 60 relatives attended.  I was so happy to see everyone.
Here we all are!!

My cousins Nancy and Susie and I went to South River Winery in Geneva Ohio

Many know of this as the "church winery" because the winery is housed in this century old church
that used to be located in Shalersville, Ohio

We had some delicious wine picked out by Susie and we brought lots of food with use; cheese, crackers, olives, bread fruit, friend chicken...we had a really nice little picknick.

We then visited "Geneva on the Lake"

And on the way home drove through Amish County

Monday Morning Susie and I went to Mosquito lake.
