Savannah High Reunion Part Two

The second evening of the event we enjoyed a lovely buffet at the Savannah Yacht Club.

We signed in with the help of these lovely ladies.

The decorating committee did such a nice job with the centerpieces.

A view of our table looking out on the river. It was rather windy but the rain held off for which all the ladies were grateful. Having nice hair in Savannah is a challenge with the humidity. We did not need rain to add to it.

Our cookie to take home.

There was a memorial table set up to remember those who did not live to make it to the reunion. Be grateful for every day that God grants you!

Here we are....we clean up good.

Our meal consisted of London Broil, Chicken Piccata, Fried Shrimp served with roasted potatoes and mixed veggies. Dessert was a luscious chocolate bread pudding with a vanilla sauce.

Here is one of my favorite photos of the evening....

Marvin and his two best friends from elementary school.  On the left is Charles Clarke...our Charles is named after him.  He and Marvin got into all sorts of things that their mamas had NO clue about!! Ricky Welch is in the middle.  He was another close friend from the old neighborhood.  All of us wives agreed that we got some fine husbands.

We made it home Sunday afternoon around four and after putting everything away, we both dropped gracefully into our Our first trip of the summer is in the books. Hope the other trips are as much fun as this one.

What a beautiful setting for buffet! Your dress is lovely, Arlene and I love the picture of you and Marvin. I am intrigued by the blue vases with the flowers. Did they have a light actually in the vase or behind it. I thought the decorations were super.

What a great reunion!! How fun for Marvin (and all) to meet up after years and have it be just like it was. Friendships like that are priceless. You DO clean up good! I LOVE that dress you wore. Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful photo of the two of you. Your dress is so pretty and you do look gorgeous. I wish that I cleaned up that well, but alas, I don't.

Great photo of Marvin and his two childhood friends as well. And what a nice idea to set up a memory table to remember those class members who are no longer living.

Those lights in the vases intrigued me as well. Could you tell how those centerpieces were put together?
