Milestones
« on: March 19, 2024, 00:07:12 »
Pagoda Friends,

Many of you may remember my daughter from various European and US events. Mary Catherine has always been my car buddy.

Saturday was her wedding day and chose the car of her dreams as the getaway vehicle.  See the attached photo. 

A wonderful day for our immediate family and  I wanted to also share with my Pagoda Family.

Tom,

Congratulations to Mary and new son in law. Nice to see the family Pagoda tradition continuing on with Mary Catherine.  Hopefully we see you again in September.

Congratulations, Tom and Rae--and to the entire Sargeant Family.

Looks like Mary Catherine has been with you and a Pagoda for some time! The one of her in the back of the car is one of the nicer photos from Pagoda Style!

Great news Tom!  You and Rae are fortunate to have gained a son-in-law to share the Sargent family interest in Pagodas.  If you've still got the blue one, I can envision a wonderful family road trip: You and Rae in one Pagoda and Mary Catherine and her husband in the other!

Thanks for all of the well wishes, and especially for digging up some old pictures of MC in the car.  I will for sure be at the European event in September but I will need to find another car buddy to bring along.
