This year our New England Cumhuriyet Bayram luncht was held on Sunday, October 28, at The Family Restaurant in Brookline, MA.  Weather played a part that weekend, so fewer people than had planned to attend were able to make it.  Along with the following RPCVs:  Gene Blanchard (T4), Colleen Clark (T4) and John Clark (T4) – and their son John Clark and family – , Buffy Dewey (T5), Lynn Maichle (T16), and Suzanne Rom (T5), we had the honor of being joined by jurists from Turkey who are in the Boston area: Judge Fuat Kara, Judge Emre Yavaş, Judge Mehmet Çabuk, Judge Cem Doğan, Judge Kutlan Menderes, Judge Meshut Çeken, and Judge Ibrahim Kaylan. They are sent here for the year by the Adalet Bakanlığı to learn English.  Margaret Fearey (Turkey 12) had told them of our annual gathering to celebrate Cumhuriyet Bayram, and it turned out to be a wonderful exchange in getting to know a bit about each other, practice speaking Turkish, and sharing stories and current news about Turkey.  Needless to say, the food at this great Turkish restaurant added to the ambiance.  We really did have a terrific time.
