O'Connell's are Pepper Fest Grand Marshals
For Tom and Janet O'Connell, life together got its start in North Hudson. Now 59 years later, they will return there to serve as grand marshals at this year's Pepper Fest parade.
The couple met there in a bar near the Mallalieu Inn.
"He sent over a beer and I wouldn't turn that down, but I wasn't too impressed with him. He seemed kind of cocky. He wanted to show me his white Buick," Janet recalled.
