On a beautiful Saturday evening (June 28), forty Nats enjoyed another fun Garden Party in the stunning backyard garden of Jennifer & Pamela Melville-Roberts. Pam-Jen thought this was around the 10th annual time that they have hosted this end-of-year June event. Our Social Committee of Lorraine and Marilyn did a super job organizing the event and everyone contributed with their tasty pot-luck delights. Succulent Hors d’oeuvres, appetizers, salads, compliments, entrees and desserts were wolfed down by the seemingly starving masses.
Prior to the “Dutch Auction”, President Tom recognized a few of the organizers and presented our hosts with a “Thank You”. Then our Compère Valerie, aka Moose, began the oft amusing gift selection by each attendee, as the resident Band-tailed Pigeons fluttered in the surrounding trees. Check out Ken and Greg’s (soon) photos on our Picasa site. The rain held off, and everyone left smiling around 9:00 p.m. A very successful and enjoyable evening.
