LIMBA Holiday Gathering
December 17, 2004 @ 12:00 am EST
This morning the meeting room at the Hilton Garden was so festive with lots of delicious breakfast fare. Just the right setting for what was to take place.
The LIMBA Holiday party was held this morning in lieu of the usual speaker program. This morning’s program began with the beautiful violin music of James Everett Graseck. Jim began with "God Bless America" inviting everyone to sing. I had seen Jim play at a party given at Computer Associates two weeks ago. I described Jim, not as a musician, but as music itself. He is versatile, funny and enormously talented. I dubbed him "the Victor Borge of the violin"
After that an old friend of LIMBA, Harry Freedman got up and did a comedy routine that lasted about 1/2 hour. For those who may remember Harry, he did our Holiday Party in 2002. This time he brought two other talented people with him. Harry had the crowd up to full speed and turned it over to John, a man with a wooden dummy. John
did some very clever lines with the dummy, and had us in rails of laughter.
There was one more comic, Chris who was also excellent, but by that time we were laughed-out. We brought Jim back with the violin and closed out the entertainment.
The positive comments were numerous and the compliments to the entertainers was well deserved.
The next meeting is scheduled for January 7th and we will be hearing from Vincent Polemeni. He will discuss his proposal for a tunnel connection to Connecticut.
