“You’ve come a long way, baby!” That’s a saying that’s been around a few years since the women of this country — and world — have joined in and have sometimes taken over what had been a man’s world. Fifteen or 20 years ago, the Bristol Tramps Reunion Dinner was for men only.
Now, not only have they broken the barrier, some have become or were members of the former all-male Tramps Committee.
I believe Janet Mellon was the first, followed by Debbie James. *(Correction: Debbie James first to serve on Committee followed by Janet Mellon)
Today, the executive director is Cathy Savino and three contributing women on the committee are Donna Papazian, Maryellen Holden and Caroline Ziogas, our most recent member.
Cathy says to look for upcoming information on this year’s program that will honor Bristol’s best, “those who have made contributions to Bristol sports.”
