2023 On the Border Gathering
The Bratwurst–roasted on the grill–was the perfect entree to accompany the veggies , salads, and desserts for this special occasion.
Debbi generously provided transportation up to her cozy and heated Pan Am cabin with all its memorabilia and seasonal decor.
Don’s creative talents extended to the outdoor atmosphere with the firepit providing warmth and the teeter-totter for extra fun.
So many thanks to Debbi and Don for another perfect gathering on the border.

Boston Christmas Party 2022
19 people attended the event, and Madeline Smith and her friend Nicki Lambooy-Albertine drove three hours from Washington Depot, Ct to attend the luncheon. Christel and Elisa surprised Madeline with a birthday cake to celebrate her 98th birthday, which is December 13. Madeline never ceases to amaze us with her energy. She still plays golf, tennis and walks two miles per day. Nicki, who recently retired after a 55-year flying career with Delta, is joining our Boston Chapter. We are happy to welcome her.
Captain Dino looked dashing in his attire and took lots of pictures for our album, while Ron Amon wore his Santa hat and was as animated as ever. Christel surprised us with a few prizes and we passed the hat for charity donations.
Happy holidays to all!

Boston Chapter On The Border Party, 2019
Following dinner we hiked up the hill to the famous Pan Am cabin , a replica of Thoreau’s cabin at Waldon Pond .
Surrounded by many of Debbi’s creative talents with Pan Am décor throughout , we were awestruck by her collections.
Debbi prepared us for some play activity that her husband, Don, had built for her : a teeter-totter ( aka see-saw ) and a towering swing. Some of us lined up, feeling adventurous , and sat on the teeter-totter for a wild ride with many laughs and pictures taken . The swing also brought us back to our playground memories from years ago.
It was such a great outdoor party , but we were missing a very special person, Ron Amon, who was also celebrating a birthday on the same day .
While Ron was not able to be with us, we all sang to him on video while holding the helium Birthday balloon.
Boston Chapter Christmas Party, 2018
Mary Lou’s artistic talents were clearly shown on the PAA tree, decorated with luggage tags from flying days along with ornaments. Sally, our president, presided over the raffle which offered a vast array of PAA prizes to the lucky winners. Suddenly , as the party was about to begin, shouts and applause were heard as Santa Claus arrived with a jolly “Ho Ho Ho” !!!!
How very special it was for us to welcome Madeline Smith, our VIP, who is still as vibrant and healthy and active as ever. Another special guest was Pat Rex, accompanied by her guardian, who enjoyed recalling her flying days.
Many thanks to Ron Amon (our special Santa) for giving us all a good laugh and entertainment, and our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Mary Lou and John O’Keefe for hosting this amazing Christmas celebration.
