65 Years Together

On July 1st we had a surprise anniversary party for Dick and Nancy, who are celebrating 65 years together.  It was truly a surprise - they thought they were coming over for the weekly pizza night dinner, and entered the common house to hear the Mendelssohn wedding recessional!  We had delicious food, festive decorations, and an excellent DJ, thanks to Kelly.  Kelly also sang one of the most popular songs of 1952 - You Belong to Me.  We had a photo board of their decades together, a 1952 trivia game, and a champagne toast.  And, somehow we ended up with NINE half-gallons of ice cream in the freezers, so we are thinking we should have an ice cream social on the 4th of July!
