Gators have coffee at Monroeville Mall - Saturday July 25, 2009

After the breakfast at Eat 'n Park (see previous post), Dana Comito, Larry Gisi's family, and I met at Gloria Jean's Coffee Beans at Monroeville Mall.

It was a humorous hour-and-a-half visit. We had lots of fun scratching (and winning) lottery tickets.

If Larry's family hadn't been there (by chance) Ed (Janet's husband), Dana, and I would have been the only Gators to share coffee. Maybe we all have great karma.

It was an unbelievable accidental reunion with the Gisi's! That was the amazing discovery.

I had my Portavian, and Tawnie (Larry's wife) wanted to see a few pictures. Her Dad is such a happy, outgoing man. He went to an eyeglass store, but first asked us to stay until he returned.

We did some "scratchies", and Tawnie had to keep going back for more tickets that we had won!

Dana mentioned that she has been "all over" on business trips with her husband. However, she couldn't stay long.

I hadn't seen her for more than 42 years. We both attended St. Michael's -- along with Mike Cima, Artie Trunzo, Kathy Mason, Judy Gibson, Judy Miller, Mary Jane DiCecco, Mark Wojton, Mark Waibel, Ralph Jenko, John Safran, Anthony Fasano, and Freda Litzinger.

I was disappointed that Kathy and Freda just could not be in 2 places at the same time.

Breakfast at Eat 'n Park on Saturday July 25, 2009

Becky Richard-Maley (right), Tom Kunkle, and I (Janet George Knight) met at Eat 'n Park in Monroeville for a chat.

Becky attended the all-class Pitcairn High School reunion events during the week.

In the future, these Pitcairn reunions will be held every three years.

What luck! ! My two family reunions had been planned for the same weekend.

Remember Patti Bartels?

Judy Gibson Brumfield writes:

Patti Bartels McClung and I met after 43 years on Sunday in Daytona and talked non-stop for 8 hours! It was so good to see her.

She left Gateway in 11th grade to move to Murrysville and then to Atlanta, so she did not graduate with us.

Pictured here are Patti, left, in blue, with Judy, right, in red.

Breakfast at Eat 'n' Park before coffee at the mall

Kathie Mason Bolton asked that we post this as an extension to Janet George Knight's previous post about the coffee:

Eat 'n' Park at 9, and Gloria Jeans for coffee at 10.

Have fun, Gators!


Hi Gators,

Some of us are planning to meet at Gloria Jean's Coffee Beans (I assume it's still there.) in the food court at Monroeville Mall on Saturday. I want to be there around 10:00 or 10:30 ish. If you are in the area, please come by and visit. You may want to bring your favorite photos to share and a camera. Look for any of the above faces. Janet George Knight
