About 38 Monterey residents from the New England and New York area met up at the Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut on August 21st. The NY area residents drive or take the Sea Jet ferry out of Orient Point, Long Island to meet up with the New England residents. There were also a few residents from New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
We all enjoyed a morning of gambling at the Foxwoods casino and a great lunch at the Golf Club. Afterwards some of us returned to the tables and slots, or just walked around and enjoyed the native America architecture.
The DeCarmine's, Luciano's, and the Bates' organized this event quite a few years ago. It is a great "snowbird" reunion to catch up on the events since heading north for the summer.
It is a wonderful summer break and opportunity to renew our Monterey friendships prior to our return to Stuart in the fall or early next year. This rendezvous' has become a great tradition that should continue for many years to come.
