Longtime peace and justice activist Sam Oast celebrated his birthday with a return trip to Union Square and dinner at Heartland Brewery. Sam recounted memories of summers past and dear friend Betty Lou Hornick was remembered. (Sam and Betty Lou were mainstays at a Saturday peace vigil at Union Square for years!) Sam still volunteers time at a homeless shelter, gets to the Catholic Worker for various events, attends various NYC demos, is a member of a book club,
and maintains a lovely rooftop garden. Happy birthday, Sam. Glad I could join you for the day!
