One more comment, I would be derelict if I did not report that my great niece, Samantha Gariety, the daughter of Tom and Dorothy Gariety of Russia and the grandchild of my brother, Carl Gariety of Russia was a member of the 2008 Bradford Pumpkin Show Court. In 2000 Samantha's older sister, Nicole Gariety Keller, was also in the Pumpkin Show Court and was crowned Miss Pumpkin of 2000.
