Nov. 29: Gayle Van Sessen

Nov. 30: Jake Gettler

Dec. 1: Bryan Bodamer shares with Aaron McDermott

Dec. 4: John Creamer McNamara, a very special friend who is well loved.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Teresa, Breandan, Dennis and I spent the day at John, Rochelle, Katie and Megan McNamara’s home. John is a great cook.

I know more men that love to cook: John, Dennis, Breandan, Mike Goletz Sr., Keith Stevens and the list goes on and on.

Special thanks to the Lowell Knights of Columbus. They did the cooking at the fish fry at St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton. Knights of Columbus Council can hardly wait till the next date is announced. They loved your fish.
