Kara & John Caparelli were raised in Yonkers & Mt. Vernon, N.Y. . They met in college. They raised their 3 daughters in Westchester County N.Y. They still look like & act like college sweethearts. And very shortly they will be calling Southern Pines home!
John is the fire chief in Larchmont, N.Y. and is entering his 29th year. Kara has worked for a food broker for 27 years and together they are overseeing their youngest daughter, Natalie, age 18, moving on to college and her twin sisters, Oliva & Shawn (age 22) finding their way in the world and the work force.
Kara and John are now also new homeowners in Southern Pines in a 1915 landmark home that originally served the area as an eye clinic and is situated on Mass. Ave – walking distance to the downtown area.
Their story unfolds in an interview that covers the cultures of the North & South, stark remembrances of 9-11, the pace of life, new beginnings & their draw to Moore County and the beginning of their love affair with Southern Pines.
Listening to Kara and John is a great reminder of what we sometimes take for granted. Moore County is a great place to live.
