Columbiettes go Western
On Saturday Evening, March 29, the Father Judge Columbiettes
expanded the geographic, cultural, and culinary
limits of our family.
The atmosphere was established early at the entry
table, capably managed by the trio of Dale Evans
look-alikes in the upper left hand quarter. We all
thank sisters Rosemarie Reina, Jean Russo and
Maureen James for their sacrifice, as
they stayed at the entrance table until
the end. Next we see the imaginative
buffet where the ladies raised the
level of a hot dog to a culinary
masterpiece with multiple condiments
and decorations. Next year, sauerkraut and
Law enforcement was a problem in the old
west before the arrival of Catholicism. Sin
and vice was rampant and it was no
different this night. The jail (below left)
was occupied almost fulltime by various
outlaws and scoundrels to include Brothers
John Cornetta and Rich Gartner.
Caller, Primo Fiore spent time on many
forms of Western dance to include square
dancing as demonstrated by Brother Clem
promenading Lillian just below the jailbirds
Across the bottom we see some well-
coordinated and highly practiced country-
western “four-wall” line-dancing. Don’t
we look good? Going up the right side we
see the highlight of the evening, an old-
fashioned “Virginia Reel.” First, the couples address one
another. Going up from there, you see the first pair Theresa
and Robert Lofaro “sashaying” down the hall. They take
their place and are followed by another pair using a stylized
sashay technique. There were many other steps in this
complex dance. The Father Judge family mastered them all.
We thank all the ladies who had the imagination to put this
great night together. The Brothers had a hard time attending
tea parties but look forward to a reoccurrence of this
miraculously wonderful event! Those who were there have
to feel sorry for those who were not.
