It was a sad day on Sunday when about 100 cars turned out to do a drive by at the home of The Little Sisters on Highland Ave. The drive by was lead by Police motorcycles, the Somerville Police and Fire Honor Guards, Fire Engine’s, Cataldo’s Ambulance Service, Bishop Reed, and about 100 cars all decorated with balloons donated by Susan and Joann Fontano, and signs thanking the Sisters for the 150 years of service to Somerville and greater Boston.
