Catherine Hennessey, Charlottetown gadabout, was born a Smith. As were her sisters Betty and Mary Clare.
For the first time since 1957 (they tell me), all three sisters, along with brother-in-law Claude (Betty’s husband) are in Charlottetown for Christmas.
So for the next several weeks your chances of bumping in to one of the Smith sisters in and around downtown Charlottetown triples. It’s like one of those rare meteor showers that happens only once in a blue moon.
This can only be considered a benefit to us all, as they are all charming and interesting and a credit to their Smith parents.
