Tomatoes take the cake at Ansonia event
ANSONIA - It doesn't matter if you say to-mayto or to-mahto, residents John and Ann Marie Checkley will invite you to their annual tomato sandwich open house.
On Saturday they welcomed family and friends to a 30th annual tradition: a party featuring their harvest of tomatoes, lots of them.
One of the centerpieces on the red-covered tables in the Checkleys' backyard.
The family invited Mayor David S. Cassetti, center, to enjoy the tomato tradition. Here he is with, from left, John Checkley, the elder John Checkley, Ann Marie Checkley, and Joshua Checkley.
The Checkleys asked people to bring non-perishable food items to be donated to a local food bank.
I had a great time at the party. I'm so glad an Ansonia friend called to tell me about it!
