Friends from
Columbus, Starkville,
Macon and Tupelo
shared the evening.


The food was delicious--and lots of it. Just ask Karen Henry, Annie Love and Monika Beatty (not pictured) who served it. At Karen's invitation, many friends provided their choice recipes. Andi and Tom Hannigan provided and served the beverages from the Tiki Bar.

Shane Tubb, Larry Priest, Ed Swan and Bob Damm provided our entertainment. The music was fantastic.

The luck of the draw! Throughout the evening Mary, with her helper, Caroline Westmoreland, drew 219 tickets from the pot. At 10:00 p.m. the ticket for Larry Brown, from Madison, was drawn and he was the lucky winner of $2,500.

Jo Ann and Jim Kitchens (though Jim was absent) were present in the decorations and their gift of beverages.

ROUND 'N ABOUT

When Clare went to Dubuque in March, she and Sister Mary Colleen had a 'private audience' with Pope Francis. They both felt blessed!

The trip down a corridor in a private home brought a different kind of blessing. Clare tripped on an unseen step and crushed her right pinky on a folding door. Now with 2 pins in her little finger, she is learning to be ambidextrous!
