2012 St Josph’s Novena Trolley

Special thanks to all of the beautiful families who welcomed us into their homes, Sefathia for organizing the Trolley, Bob Ryan from CATA and Eddie Salah who donated his time to drive the Novena Trolley and our trolley mates who did the 2012 Novena crawl.

The work put in by these families is truly astounding and we are all honored by the welcoming by each and every house and huge props go out to the women, men and children that keep this tradition alive.  You are what makes our community special.

Kim Smith will do her usual knock out job covering the entire thing in a much more refined manner than my stuff but it will take a bit for her to chew through all the footage.

In the mean time, I’ll be doing a separate post each day from each family, some had more coverage than other from me as while The Bean and Snoop Maddie Mad were still with us I wanted to spend that time with them.

First off, the Trolley-
