A Kennedy Connection

As the country honors John F. Kennedy this week, on the 50th anniversary of his assassination, Bellevue Club member Barry Gordinier remembers his encounter with the family not too long after the tragedy. On March 28, 1964, he was photographed (below) instructing Caroline through her very first ski lesson at a resort in Vermont, and he says he spent about week with the whole family. “I even gave instructions to the secret service,” says Gordinier.  Gordinier, who ski raced for many decades himself, says he was very happy to be able to provide some fun for the family during what must have been a challenging time.
