It has been several years since Monterey had a Fun Night event. Well, this year Pat Cleary decided to give it another run and organized a great group of volunteer acts to equal previous shows. MC’s Pat Cleary and Jack Parker opened the ceremony with some “memories” and proceeded to introduce the acts, starting with a dance number from the Rhinestone Cowgirls, followed by a very funny Raggedy Ann and Andy. Rita O’Connell played a medley of tunes, followed by a humorous hobo Marilyn Paul.
Then a Second Hand Rose tune which was interrupted by our own ”hot dog lady” (one of her several appearances). Jack Parker showed his vocal acumen with several songs, followed by a tap dance duo of Phyllis Snyder and Sandy Williams.
Kathryn Bolce (dressed in drag) as a golfer told a variety of golf jokes, including new rules for seniors. Then it was time for the grand entrance of the “Supremes” with a medley of famous hit songs, followed by a Moi Moi Clairvoyant (Pat Marshall) and to wrap things up an appearance by Tony with his button accordion, and the infamous Giuseppe (Mecozzi) and Rosa (Haviland) from Naples, Italy
It was an extravagant show that produced new “memories” that will be remembered for years to come.
