Jim Guinan & The Single Rose

Christine Guinan D'Onofrio , Jim's youngest daughter, recently shared these two compelling photos she took. The first she shot last year when her father had returned to the Hudson Highlands for his son John's funeral . While there, Jim went down to #7 Garrison's Landing to see his old home again. The image speaks for itself. The second is a single flower that Christine found blooming unexpectedly on an old family rose bush at her home in Florida after she arrived there from her father's funeral in April of this year. There had not been blooms on the bush for a couple of years. Christine says she took this single flower as a sign from her Mom, Peg , that Jim had arrived to his wife safe and sound in heaven.

Irish Night Musicians Move to the Stadium

Many of the musicians who played at "Irish Night" at Guinan's will now be playing at "The Stadium" on Route 9 in Garrison, near Graymoor . Guitarist Jack McAndrew writes that the crew will be playing outdoors during the summer weather permitting. (Given Mother Nature's track record this June, don't hold your breath.) They will play on the same schedule as established at Guinan's, i.e, the Thursday of the full moon or the first Thursday following a Full Moon. For example, if the full moon is on a Saturday, they will have their seisiun on the following Thursday. Upcoming: July 9 Aug. 6 Sept. 10
