Leek soup was the first course at this evening’s Sarasota Welsh Society’s banquet for St. David’s Day.
I “raised” three spoonfuls of soup.
One in memory of the late Vera Dowden Baldwin - a favourite Welsh woman for many of my friends and for me. Born in Risca, South Wales, she had a stellar career as an educator, friend and mentor in Worcester, MA.
Another in honour of my dear sister in law Wendy Povey. Born Wendy Williams she is “half Welsh”.
