Special thanks to Kippy Marks for playing the violin so beautifully; Jack Folchi and Jerome Olds for the videos and slide shows; the Alexander Hamilton Post 448 for serving up the drinks; Tony Berno of Moss Camp Catering in Ukiah for the delicious food and the UU for allowing us to use their great facilities.
