Click photo for larger view

    On Saturday, October 16, 2010, a group of friends of the late Peter Courey gathered for what is called “Weinee Palooza” in memory of Peter Courey. The event has taken place almost every year since Pete passed away in July 2005. Don Hoover has spearheaded the gathering and the first two years Pete’s parents attended the event, unfortunately they have both passed away within the last year. Money was raised for the Grand Island Neighbors Foundation and each person in attendance had to bring a dish that contained hot dogs. The unusual as well as common dishes were dined on. A table is always set up with a picture of Pete, a lit candle and an ashtray, which represents Pete’s love for a good cigar! The group hopes to keep the tradition up next year in memory of their friend, Pete.
