Orchard Inn Reunion... How it all began!
On June 26, 1999 a surprise 40th birthday party
was thrown for Jeff Skonieczny.
It was such a beautiful afternoon
that day that I decided it was the perfect time
to air out the Orchard Inn sign.
So Gregg Ponciano and myself
strapped it onto the roof of my car
and headed 30 miles south
down the Garden State Parkway to the party.
I even called the New Jersey State Police
to make sure we wouldn't get pulled over
for hauling such a beast.
It was at this party that Carmen Marsh
first hatched the idea of having a
I remember it like it was yesterday!
Here are a few photo's from the party.
This party was the birthplace of
The Orchard Inn Reunion.
Isn't that pretty cool!
