Garden Party for Cultural Center Huge Success
Besides the title and both being smash hits, that is where the similarities between the Ricky Nelson song and the fabulous fund raiser end. This Garden Party, organized to help raise money for the construction of the Fenton Cultural Center, was a sold out show. Over 120 people attended in addition to the line up of local speakers.
This event, held at the Fenton Community Center auditorium on June 24th in the early afternoon, featured speakers from The French Laundry, Gerych's, Cathy Vrh, Fenton Flowers & Gifts and Yard 'N Garden. Master of Ceremonies, Kathy Williams, did a wonderful job. The luncheon served included a delightful garden salad cleverly served in clay pots with raffia ribbon, and an assortment of dressings presented in decorative watering cans.
A good time ... a good cause ... and maybe Ricky was wrong ... maybe you can please everyone.
