Our shining star, Carolyn Blain came to Providence, Rhode Island for Thanksgiving this past year to take part in a family event. This happy circumstance became the occasion to get together with some of our community in Rhode Island and Massachusetts to sit down for a lively lunch. So on November 24, 2007, the Saturday following the big feast day, a few of us gathered at the ZBar on Wickenden Street in Providence for yet more wonderful food, and we had the place almost all to ourselves. We took full advantage of that to make ourselves right at home. Carolyn brought many requested items from England, and even a marvelous gift or two.
Once again, I am reminded that the International Pemphigus & Pemphigoid Foundation has had many terrific outcomes. One in particular is the almost immediate links of friendship.
Around our table were, Linda and Merv McKee, Gloria and Alan Papert, Carolyn Blain, Dieter and Yvette Nachmias-Baeu, and Ellen Levine.
