West Somerville, MA, September 12, 2002


Hosted by the Somerville Striders Athletic Club


A lad from Vannes, Brittany mixed in with a group of gritty guys and gals from Somerville, Leominster, Woburn, Lynn, Charlestown, Watertown, Revere, Dorchester, Massachusetts..even tough Rahway, New the VFW Logan Post on a Thursday night....NOT the first time Lionel Kervella has muscled his way into a tough group of American boys & gals on a Thursday night...and mixed in!! Remember way back when he walked into the back of the ole Khoury's with a French song book in his hand and then proceeded to belt out French Resistance melodies until the wee hours of the morning....folks forget there was culture in East Somerville way before the fall of 1999:>)

A few viewings of Rocky I, II, III, IV & V and eventually you knew that Dave Brighouse would get the eye of the tiger and finally beat his sweetheart -Nicole at a Thursday night race..whether it be on the Charles, in Somerville or around their toilet..IT HAD TO HAPPEN and it did TONIGHT!!! and boy are we all she has to take him out to his favorite steakhouse and properly salute him!!

A really big show next Thursday night in Somerville....celebrating many a birthday at the Papa Clyde 40th Birthday Run & Bash with Friends...come on down and say happy birthday to Patricia French, Stephanie Schroot, Frankie Keane, Marie Kemp & Papa's a pot luck affair, so don't forget to bring something! Papa Clyde is partial to lasagna, so bring your very best if you decide to come-your invited!!
