Change of venue this year for the annual family gathering.
Since the majority of the family that would attend are in the Bay area, Stevie & Gerry generously offered to have it at
their house. Stevie got a tent with side panels, built a table that would accommodate 22+ people, and rented a heater
to keep everyone warm. It turned out excellent.
But the best news was that Shannon and Adam surprised everyone and
got married at Alameda City Hall the Monday prior to Thanksgiving.
Her parents, Denise and Joe as well as her nephew, Cole were coming out for the family gathering this year.
Unbeknownst to all, they had been planning the event for almost 3 months.
