What a day! A fun one at that. Abbey and Gannon came to the shop today to help me out and we dressed them up in our vintage dresses (yes, Gannon too - what a good sport) and they walked the streets with signs to promote the Retro Prom. What a hoot!
Then it was time to hurry home to get ready. I went as a "hippie from the 60's" and Dick wore his jeans, tennies, and a paisley tie.
Zanie Janie, husband Steve and son Joel were our "double date". Janie came as a 1975 prom queen.
Barb (the baker for Janie's shop) looked pretty darn elegant.
Joel had a ball dancing with all the gals.
Janie and Steve were so much fun to watch, they used to teach ballroom dance and they are GOOD!

Another blurry picture of Janie and Cathy (My Sweet Holly) doing some moves.
My daughter Ashley, disc jockey Rob, and Carrie Nation festival chairman Katey doing the pose. They all went to school together - for real!
Daughter Ashley and son-in-law Tony all decked out.
Dick and I having some fun with the kids.
Katy's mom in her 60's glasses - she even drove back home to get them!
Our prom king was the "tacky tuxedo man" and did he ever deserve it. His name is Tom and he came with the ruffled shirt and all. I don't think he missed one dance!
This was the line-up for the queen and king.
And our new prom queen really is...
... none other than our own Zanie Janie!
Janie and Tom doing their "king and queen" dance.
A great time was had by all and we can't wait to do it all again next year. I hope more people turn out for this great fundraiser to keep our Carrie Nation Festival alive and well. Dick and I bid on 4 hours of the disc jockey and WON! Now we are planning a night of dancing in the streets to keep the fundraising going. I'll fill you in on that when we get the plans underway. Be watching and try to come - we're going to keep the "retro" thing going throughout the summer.
Well, my dancing shoes are put away and I'm on my way to see Dad. I'm taking Rosie for a visit with him today, she always puts a smile on his face.
Have a great Sunday and we'll talk again soon.
Until next time...

  3. Don't know if you are getting my e-mails or not, but I think I told you wrong on the price of the table linen...they are 18.00 each. They had a price increase on the extra large towels. Thanks for your interest. (millstonemercantile)
