Before heading to the City of Brotherly Love later this week the UPenn cohort gathered at Salute’s Ristorante in the Richmond Marina for a social gathering to meet our new UPenn chaperone.
Mario Miranda, history teacher extraordinaire at El Cerrito High School and five time ILC chaperone, has volunteered to fill a void and escort our legion of three to the UPenn Physics Academy and other points east.
To reinforce the nature of this social occasion the dress code was casual (although I dressed up by wearing long pants, a shirt without flowers on it and shoes that covered my toes). I left my cameras in the car and we didn’t have any scheduled speakers. We were there just to get to know each other a little better—our three students, their parents, Mario and me.
Oh, and we thought we’d throw in a nice meal and few selections from the dessert tray.
Many thanks to Sandi Potter who just happened to have her handy dandy digital camera handy to snap a photo.
