2018 Garden Party Benefit The program started off with a video from Emmanuel inviting us to this Garden Party Benefit for the school. Hear the short video with the children saying, “thank you” at the end! I gave a progress report on the school. This link will direct you to the power point presentation. Nieces Kris and Staci welcomed guests to the Garden Party at the registration table. My friend Sasha and fellow nursing friend demonstrated the bread she is going to teach us to make August 18th. My son Joe’s wife, Katy, and David’s girlfrieind, Sarah, oversaw the food table. My son David, and his former bassoon teacher, Matt, played beautiful music to entertain us. Sister in law, Jean, oversaw the entire party from start to finish. She came forward to give some remarks. My garden was in good shape. I like to say that my husband, Paul, takes care of the “hard scape” and I take care of the “soft scape” We make a good team! A local business gave 15 min. free massages. Silent auction items donated by friends and some companies. Wonderful auction. Next year it will be even bigger!
