Around Ravenna: A wonderful welcome home and some events to keep in mind

Jeanette and Jim Doerfler hosted a picnic for former classmates at their home in Streetsboro. The event was to welcome former Ravennan Donna Bocanelli Snyder for a visit from her home in Reno, Nevada. Donna flew in with her daughter, Carol, to visit with sister-in-law Lena Bocanelli for a week.

We guests had a catered lunch under their great pavilion enjoying the beautiful day and the conversations. Those attending were Larry Giovinazzo, Dora and Fred Pittman, Betty Wolff and daughter Chris, Sister Cecilia Mendiola, Marilyn Porter, Hank Trivelli and Velma Serafin, Virginia Baker and Don Reed, and myself, as well as Donna, Carol and Lena.

When I talked to Donna when she returned home to Nevada, she again stated what a good time we all had together. I fully agree!

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the third Thursday of the month spaghetti dinners at Immaculate Conception Parish Hall. The hall is located at 251 W. Spruce Ave., Ravenna, and dinners are held from 4 to 7 p.m. Carry-out orders are available and the dinners are open to the public. See you there on Oct. 20.

Also mark your calendars for the 35th annual Celebration of Lights to be held at University Hospitals Portage Medical Center in Ravenna.

This year will be an in-person event following proper protocols starting at 7 p.m. Dec. 7, with the reception immediately following.

This is a much-loved event that remembers all loved ones.
