Junior Dante Club Celebrates 75 Years – by Sandy McBride

When you get the ladies of Mechanicville’s Junior Dante Club together, there is always laughter, teasing, bantering, remembering, sharing and planning.   And last week’s 75th anniversary celebration at Panza’s Restaurant on Saratoga Lake was no exception. With 44 of the group’s current 49 members present, President Pam Sgambati welcomed the members and special guest Sandy McBride. Pam distributed to all the members a dainty carnation pin, representing the group’s official flower, the white carnation, to be worn with their traditional Junior Dante club pins.
