Cumhurriyet Bayram Dinners  2007

Florida Arkadaslar Bayram Luncheon   Sunday, Nov. 4, 2007

We convened our Second Annual Bayram Luncheon in Winter Park, Florida on Sunday, November 4th.  Winter Park is a suburb of Orlando and is thus fairly centrally located for Florida RPCVs.  Linda Ozgur again made arrangements at the Bosphorus Restaurant where the food was delicious and the company even better.  We had 15 atendees, 9 of whom were Turkey RPCVs and most of whom have been to Turkey in one capacity or another. 

We didn't talk about Peace Corps experiences so much as we talked about the interesting activities and travels everyone is currently engaged in.  It was a delightful time, enjoyed by all, and everyone left with the desire to get together again next year.

Attending were: Lynda Ozgur (T-6) and her husband Burnell Hoekstra, Hank and Jean Webb (both T-5), Paul (T-8 and Thailand-40) and Magali Kirwin (Thailand-40), and their daughter, Cristine Kirwin (Thailand-115), Wing and Jim Barfoot (both T-9), Eve Bowers MacMaster (T-2) and Richard MacMaster, Kevin McCarthy (T-2) and his wife Karelisa Hartigan, and Joseph and Ellie (T-15) LeBaron.

Lunch consisted of delicious yaprak dolması, mercimek çorbası, çoban salatası, karışık ızgarı, baklava, and coffee.


Seated: Kevin McCarthy, Magali Kirwin, Ellie LeBaron, Richard MacMaster, Lynda Ozgur, Hank Webb
Standing: Wing Barfoot, Jim Barfoot, Cristine Kirwin, Paul Kirwin, Eve Bowers MacMaster, Burnell Hoekstra, Karelisa Hartigan, Joseph LeBaron, and Jean Webb
