The warm, late afternoon May sunshine provided the ‘icing on the cake’ for a wonderful gathering of alumni at the home of Jim and Cathy (Pearson) Crawford on Sunday, May 18 when approximately 50 guests gathered to catch up with each other in a relaxed outdoor setting.
Beginning at 4pm guests sipped their drinks, mingled, and soaked up the ambience while trading stories with each other in the house, out in the garden, and on the patios – all the while enjoying delicious appies brought along by generous folks.
Later the party was treated to the rock musical stylings of 2 different bands from their era in the Crawford’s’ ‘Party Garage’!
Dancers and appreciative listeners, along with the band, only took a short break to enjoy delicious Oregano’s pizza as the warm weather offered the rare Victoria opportunity to continue to dine outside, sans bugs, rain, or the usual high winds!
A further treat followed as the golden afternoon sun faded to a lovely lavender twilight at which point the guests moved into the ‘dance garage’ and were treated to an amazingly talented R & B trio.
Led by the fabulous vocals of the featured soloist and highly talented musician (from the dance the evening before at the Crystal Gardens!) the trio offered tasty dance tunes for the remaining die hard partiers!
It can be honestly said that The Class of ’68 know how to party yet the next day, thanks to the continued enthusiastic and team attitude of this amazing group, one would not have known such a fabulous gathering had even occurred…..well, aside from the beautiful bouquets, balloons, and a very neat and tidy recycling centre!
Thanks to all for a wonderful time!
See you again next time!
