Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 20, 2012 25th Anniversary Vietnam Veterans Clock Tower Services April 26 by Sal Giarratani Every year in April, members of the Viet- nam Combat Veterans Combined Armed Forces come together to honor those who fought and perished in that war. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Clock Tower at Marina Bay which has become a daily reminder to all who pass it of the sacrifices a whole generation of Americans once made in that southeast Asian nation. The service will begin at 2:00 pm sharp on Thursday, April 26 at Marina Bay in Quincy, Massachusetts. Guest speaker this year will be Capt. Paul W. Bucha, US Army Medal of Honor recipi- ent and past president of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society. Prior to this service, three corners will be dedicated in the City of Quincy. At 11:00 am dedication of memo- rial square to Major Basil L. Ciriello, USAF at the corner of Connell and Robertson Streets, at 11:45 am dedication of memo- rial square to PFC David A. Pitts, USMC and, lastly at 12:30 pm dedication of memorial square to SP4 George W. Underwood, US Army. As a former Quincy resident and some- one who enlisted in the US Air Force right out of Boston English High back in 1966, I have always found myself in Quincy at this Clock Tower every April to remember all who fought and those who never came home. As the Vietnam Veterans Combined Armed Forces state: "Through us, they will live forever." Larry Norton, a Vietnam veteran who served in Vietnam many years ago and now is a great friend of mine. He and those he works with are always there to remember all who sacrificed their very lives for the rest of us. Each year the crowd is amazingly large and still growing all these years because as the saying goes: "No one is left behind or forgotten." Tourists for an Afternoon by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari It was just last week, we were walking along "little Prince Street" when we overheard a tourist walking h0hind a alaim h6w much he loved the North End and how he would love to live in it. We have often heard these words spoken but for some reason they finally reg- istered, prompting us to a little experiment. We rea- soned that living in the North End all our lives caused us to become oblivi- ous to the obvious charms of our neighborhood so we de- cided, for just an afternoon, to pretend we were tourists visiting the North End for the first time and try to see what they see. We made our way to the steps of City Hall which is boundary of the North End and from there we began our little experiment. Immedi- ately we were face to face with the dramatic Holocaust Memorial and the six col- umns each hearing one million serial numbers rep- resenting the six million Jews who perished under the Nazi regime. We wan- dered through the glass tow- ers, said some prayers for the poor souls represented there and continued on our TION FACILITY Specializing in the art of celebration Wedding, Anniversary, Quinceahera, Reunion, Birthday, Social and Corporate Events.

We walked down Marshall Street with its collection of Colonial Buildings past the old Ebenezer Hancock House and the Union Oyster House, America's oldest restaurant and continued on to Faneuil Hall and the Quincy Market / area. We were on the very/ beginning of our tour and already impressed by the sights that we often just breezed past but now, in our assumed role as tourists, took time to ponder. We then walked along the Greenway where we turned onto Commercial Street, then onto Richmond Street finally to North Square and the Paul Revere House. An- chored by Sacred Heart Church, the Square is said to ,be the oldest public square America, ; Like the tourists that in spired us, we cut through little Prince Street and t~rned onto Hanover Street, t~eeming with life, both tour- ists and residents of the North End making their way past an assortment of res- taurants and pastry shops all packed with customers enjoying some of the finest Italian food this side of Naples. We made a side trip to visit Saint Leonard Church and as in Sacred Heart Church took care to walk the aisles acquainting ourselves with the many saints represented. We then headed down Hanover to Cross Street doubled back onto (Continued on Page 12) ALL THAT ZAZZ by Mary N. DiZazzo Makeup Tricks tl to Look Younger We All Need Them! Ciao Bella, I have picked up many kinds of makeup this past year and the best way to use them! Here is what I found from the experts and myself. Tried and true are all these facts. 1. Using a primer after your moisturizer has set in, is a must. Primer actually smoothes out your skin with a "cheese-cloth" effect making your face appear smoother! I've been using primer for years. Use alone or under foundation. Abso- lute magic! 2. Foundation for mature skin should be light and airy, not heavy and thick. A foam or air-brush spray founda- tion should be purchased. The advancement in tech- nology of these new applica- tions gives a flawless look! 3. A liquid illuminating high lighter (containing light-reflecting particles) should be used above blush line; on brow bone and can be mixed in with foundation to make skin look radiant and hide flaws! Truly a must! 4. Use a matte concealer under eye sweeping from inner nose to end of eye. Apply a pale yellow face pow- der with brush over con- cealer to make eyes bright and youthful." Works every time! the cheekbone for a dewy fin- ish. Powder blush exagger- ates fine lines and sits atop the skin's surface. 6. Enhancing shades of Rose lipstick give off a younger appearance. When applying lipstick, dab around the border of your lips mak- ing the edges soft not giving attention to fine lines around your mouth! 7. Use washable mascara since the waterproof is rough on removing from delicate lashes! Well glamazons, that's just a few of the secrets to a younger and better looking appearance. I will be giving a private Beauty Talk over lunch and will give out name brands of product I have used and love! If you are interested call me for more info! Happy Spring and keep looking marvelous!
