BACCHANAL: THE PEOPLE, NOT THE PLACE, MATTERS

Dear Source,
This was one of the best St. Thomas Bacchanals of all we have had, in my opinion. I have been to every one so far, and intend to be at all the rest.
I am Nick Russell's oldest sister, and I surely do agree with him that this event each year is the best possible way to stay in touch with old friends and family. It was wonderful to see his old high school sweetheart after 38 years … Lainey is as cute today as she was back then.
I really don't care where these parties take place, as I, like Mary Rice, go to them because of the "people," not the place. I live in the Atlanta area and wouldn't mind if they took place in New York or New Jersey, as long as all o we are together.
Thanks for everything to everyone who participated in putting this gathering together. It was super, terrific and wonderful.
See you next year!
Merrilyn Russell, Illich, Cole, Lewis
