OLD FRIENDS AND NEW ONES AT WINE & CHEESE

Tales were swapped, wine was sipped and cheeses were nibbled at the "meet and greet" social for Nina Baranski (above, right), author of the city's history book, PORT ST. LUCIE AT 50: A City for All People. Many were friends from her days as PSL Mirror reporter and editor, and as the architect of city's Communications Department.

More than 30 guests joined her and her husband Bill at Rick's Diner, for the event. Those attending not only shared food and drink, but were able to save on the book and have it signed by Nina. Several new members joined during the event.
