Crazy Combo Party

Well, sometimes we just have too many party ideas and too little time!  Every year we have a Kentucky Derby party (complete with hats, mint juleps, betting and singing My Old Kentucky Home).  This year, we also wanted to have a 60s party send-off for Diana and David, who have decided, sadly, to move to Hillsborough to be closer to town (we are definitely a rural community). So we combined the two events, which made for some interesting costumes.

Mike, Betsy and Joyce - Mike has had his peace medallion since the 60s!

Anne and Glaeshia -skirts and dresses!

Glaeshia, Meg, Joan, Joyce, Karen and Karolyn looking very festive. 
We tried to get all the guys for a photo too, but no luck!

Watching the horses getting loaded for the race

Karolyn is adorable!

Mary, David, Diana and Glaeshia

Evey was having a grand time!

We did an Elderberry Trivia Quiz. 
This is the team that won (Karolyn David, Dave and Richard)
Dave has both a long history with Elderberry AND a great memory!

Jon - classic 60's!!!

David - very dapper!!!  The suit was from some costume event, but the hat was actually from a wedding!

There was 60s food too - fondue, casseroles and (my favorite) potato chips and Lipton onion soup dip! 
This was one of our less healthy meals!

Karen and Stewart had the winning horse and won the pot,
UNTIL the winning horse was disqualified and Betsy won the pot!!

Diana, Glaeshia and Joyce working on the trivia quiz

Betsy, Mike and Mickey were a close second on the quiz

We finished off the evening with dancing to 60's music.  Wild night!
