Someone Else Turns 70


Big year for birthdays here,  our friend Allen, who lives in Toronto and Lucigiano turned 70 at the beginning of September.  He and Dinah have a nice house, well suited for giving parties and having their family come and stay.  The three children were there along with their spouses or partners and the 4 grand children.  To celebrate with friends, Dinah and family had a cocktail party.
