A very merry time was had by all: Bunny, our long-time accompanist, entertained our Gentlemen Songsters singing group at her home in Darien, as she played songs on her magnificent organ, gave accordion lessons to Dave and then provided us with a holiday feast that will live in our memories for a very long time. Great fun! Tom
