Pumpkin Festival at All Saints Episcopal

Twice each year, All Saints Episcopal Church of Sunnyside hosts a street fair, once in the Spring (called the Strawberry Fair), and once in the Autumn (called the Pumpkin Festival).

Church members chip in at various stations, and this year I ended up at the grill with Father Jerome, feeding 5,000 despite starting out with just 5 buns and 2 hot dogs.

A couple of the images below are from the little fife and drum corps of Sunnyside

New Year's Eve, 2012

Our long tradition in our family is to spend the latter part of the evening in reflection and repentance.  Then at the stroke of  00:00 we pray in gratitude and to offer ourselves for the year to come.

After our prayers we have a toast with the family, and then head right next door to our neighbors of 18 years to spend an hour or so together.

Here below are Hiroko and me (use to be with the kids too ... the hands of time) with our immediate neighbors.  Don't be fooled by the rubber champagne bottles.
