Connecticut ActiveRain Meet-Up At Dagny Eason's Home

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149


This afternoon several CT, RI, and NY ActiveRain got together at Dagny Eason's beautiful home for the first of two ActiveRain Meet-Up's this week.  This was the forth Meet-Up that Dagny has hosted, and it was one of the better ones.

In the past we have been inside, but today we got to enjoy her beautiful back yard and the gorgeous views from her deck. Many of us that were there have been to Dagny's Meet-Ups before, but this was a first for Tatyana Makarov, and it was the first that I have been at with Ginny Gorman.  It was a pleasure to meet the two of them for the first time, and I hope to have the opportunity to be with them at other functions in the future.  

Below are pictures of those that were at Dagny's ActiveRain Meet-Up this afternoon.

From Left to Right George Souto, Jennifer Fivesdal, J Philip Faranda, Dagny Eason, Ginny Gorman, Debbie Gartner, Marilyn Katz, David Popoff, Tatyana Makarov, Barbara Altieri, and Ed Silva.

Tomorrow night is the Meet-Up that Frances Rokicki.  Frances will be hosting from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. at:

Frank Pepe's Pizza Restaurant
221 Buckland Hills Dr.
Manchester, CT

I hope there is a good turn out for Fran's Meet-Up, and I will share the pictures tomorrow night.

George, I've made all of the Dagny meet-ups and this was most pleasant because it was outside and the weather was perfect. We did come a bit short of the 20+ meet-up Dagny had the first time, however.
