Alito’s birthday celebration

Friday, May 13, 2011 – at Geriatrico Nazaret

The afternoon was totally improvised.  I asked Ricardo Aragona to get out his guitar so Amanda could sing.  Then Nestor Martinez joined us with his guitar.  The two sang folk tunes, and other residents came to listen and sing along.  Nestor accompanied Amanda Lucero for Nostalgias and La Cumparsita.   Alito enjoyed every minute of the musical presentation.

Luis Pino and Juan Panuccio have known Alito since he organized a dance at La Pista de Lima in 1945.  Alito wasn’t old enough to enter dances then, let alone organize one.  He ran it for seven years.  Luis told Alito some of the interesting times he remembered there.
