Dickeyville Kids Reunion
October 7 @ 10:00 am - 8:30 pm
Yes, it is finally happening! The Dickeyville Kids will return to our old haunts. We were friends, acquaintances, baby-sitters, and babies that had sitters, sons, daughters, siblings, and friends. Our memories extend from Victory Gardens by the Dam in the 1940’s to the upheaval of the 1960’s and even beyond. Within this little valley, on the Western edge of Baltimore City, we shared a childhood, not without its difficulties, but filled with play, games, ice-skating, sledding, and lazing by the Gwynns Falls. Free in so many ways to grow up, surrounded by a largely untouched natural world.
We were most fortunate to secure Bear Brothers Catering for a sumptuous full luncheon, with a cocktail hour reception, hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine, and sodas, followed by a lovely dinner, including their delicious crab cakes and beef tips in a mushroom sauce. We will even have a Champagne or Sparkling Water toast to start the festivities. Mike’s band, “The Villagers,” will play during the reception.
Remember that Elinor Sandlass Cecil is assembling our shared stories in her Dickeyville Daze and will accept submissions until early September.
