Hi, Everyone.
 
Yesterday 17 of us met in Sleepy Hollow for our tour of the Rockefeller Estate. 
Our tour was led by our own cugina, Laura Frasca Bunt.  Laura told us she had
lived on the Estate as her father worked there repairing furniture and other wooden
articles. Laura told us of  many other Calitrani  who lived and worked on the estate
and in the surrounding area.  She pointed out the many Italianate features in the house
and on the grounds.  We enjoyed meeting other cugini and connecting the dots of our
relationships.  Included in our group was a sweet 12 year old girl and the rest of us
ranged in age upwards.  After the tour, several of us went to lunch at a nearby seafood
restaurant.  Pat Capossela joined us.  Pat is 99 years old and his daughter Phyllis
told us he continues to walk around the grounds of his retirement community. Pat is
hale, hearty and healthy.  We visited and laughed and told stories of our visits and
connection to Calitri.  We had a wonderful time and look forward to another event. 
 

We hope to see many of our cugini at the Kensico Dam Italian Heritage Festival
 on Sunday, July 13.

 

Best to all, Elaine Hennessey
