Seniors Lunch & Learn: The Kennedy Family

Where did it all start?

Before JFK, Bobby, and all their siblings, a Dad and Mom started an American legacy that lives with us to this day.

By Vicki Jeromos-Blayney, Communications Committee Chair

Olivia Castro from Legacy Place of Twinsburg sponsored the Seniors Lunch & Learn on May 17.  They graciously provided a complimentary lunch for our seniors while Susan Cannavino from “Presentations with Pizzazz” revealed an inside look into the early years of the Kennedy family.

She told how Joe Kennedy, the patriarch of the family, wanted to be rich setting a goal for himself to become a millionaire by 30 years old.  A goal that he far exceeded in his lifetime.  Rose Kennedy raised their children to be perfect and instilled in each one a sense of service.  The image they wanted to portray was very important to Joe.  We heard stories of infidelity, family tragedy, mob ties, and then there was the politics, insider trading, prohibition, and so much more that Joe was into early on.  But I don’t want to give away all of Susan’s wonderful presentation and so many of their stories.  Keep an eye out for her next presentation that is coming soon or contact her at 440-488-0660.
