|HHCC Founders: Clockwise:|
Kay, Hilda, Ruth & Dee.
10-10-10, as in October 10, 2010, was a very special date indeed: it was the celebration of the HHCC's Ninth Anniversary!
In 2001 five ladies, who loved to crochet, decided they wanted to start a crochet club in the Danbury area; Dee was asked to "...look into it." Dee found the CGOA, became a member and learned about how to start a Chapter. Shortly thereafter Ruth Arbitelle (deceased), Hilda Nichols, Kay Perna, Dee Stanziano and Ruth Young made it official: The Happily Hooked on Crocheting Club, Connecticut Chapter of the Crochet Guild of America, was started! ... and the fun hasn't stopped!
Members gathered Sunday at the Courtyard by Marriot in Danbury to celebrate, bringing many different delicious entrees and desserts such as Casey's Cucumber Salad:
1 package of Persian Cucumbers (6-8 in a package)
2 large seedless Cucumbers
1 large sweet onion
Himalayan Pink Salt, ground
Fresh Black Peppercorns, ground
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Peal and thinly slice cucumbers and onion. Place in large bowl. Add pink salt, peppercorn, rice vinegar and olive oil to taste.
Allow to marinate for at least 1 - 3 hours; stirring gently on occasion. Enjoy!
