Ambie Talks Fiesta and How He Got Started
Here’s where you catch up on everybody’s life since last Fiesta. The Novello family has a new granddaughter, Julianna. Bob Whynott’s last day as City Clerk is today. All the city officials were there talking about next fall’s possible candidates. Steve Maniacci and Jerry Ciolino are doing great at the “West End Sweets”. And on and on…. Good food, good people!
Congratulations to everyone who ran! And a big thank you to the organizers, volunteers, and the GPD!
