 On October 27th, Seattle area volunteers got together at the home of Ruth and Dale Hultengren for the eighth consecutive year. It’s getting to be a custom. It was a “small” group of twenty-four – down a bit from last year’s record-setting forty. Attending were Judith Cederblom (T-12), Hannah Eulenberg (T-15), Tom Snoeberger, Marilee Fuller (T-6), Michael Eulenberg (T-15), Julia Eulenberg, Dana Marmion (T-15), Kent Breidenstein, Diane Pearce (T-9), Chris Smith (T-4), Ann Smith, Marilyn Stark (T-4), Ann Bozer (T-16), James Stark, John Thompson (T-8), Babette Thompson, George Wright (T-9), Ali San (language instructor at Occidental 1969) , Yasemin San, Selim Kuru (University of Washington, professor of Ottoman), Ruth Hultengren, Dale Hultengren (T-15), David Hultengren (Ruth’s and Dale’s youngest son and his fiancé) Rachel Malinen. Although more is always merrier, this year’s gathering was particularly nice because one actually had an opportunity to visit with everyone else. And food? Oh yes, there was plenty!

What restaurant can can compete with the variety – not to mention tastiness – of our menu?  Patlıcan salatası, taboulı, carrots and rice, yaprak dolması, poğaca, grilled liver, Arabian squash, Adana kebab, cacık, mercimek çorbası, Şam fistığı, rice wıth eggplant sauce, müceddere, mücver and İmam bayıldı. And, of course, pide. İçecekler: şarap, raki, bira, meyva suyu… Many a tale and many a laugh were later followed with çay.  

And, as always, everyone in the picture is smiling.

Dale Hultengren (T-15)
