For our October gathering, we had a feast! Oh yes, indeed! We gathered for a potluck luncheon at Jane Parker’s house. She treated us to fried chicken, a baked bean dish, which had been a recipe from Millie Shipman, and a noodle salad. All were absolutely delicious. That was complimented with rolls and biscuits, followed by fruit salad and two types of dessert (One of which was homemade by Ethel Salamone — YUM!). We rolled on home; we were so full.
Before our luncheon, Jane showed us a clip from the movie she had been in. You didn’t know that we have a true Hollywood actress in our midst? Well, we do: Mrs. Parker. In her 20’s, she toured with an all- female jazz band. One of their gigs was being filmed in a Hollywood movie. She appears twice quite prominently, playing her saxophone. More importantly, we really had a wonderful time and decided that we would like to have a similar luncheon for December. That means there will not be a Free Spirits meeting in November. So, mark your calendars for December 15th.
We will discuss over the next few weeks where we will meet. This will be our Christmas Carol Singing. Ben Berman plans to accompany us.
