Actress Mary Carey was in town for the Wing Bowl and a couple of appearances at the Gold Club. Last year Jen Carroll, Laura Burkhardt,and I met her at 10 Arts and we all maintained a friendship since. Also picture are her cousin, Angela (r) and her husband Dave. Mary who never knew who her father was, was contacted by him about 5 years ago. She went and met the rest of the family in Ohio, and remains close. Whenever Mary is on the East coast her cousin comes to that town to spend some time together. Happy Birthday Angela.
