It took place from 6:00 - 11:00 PM withan open bar and hors d'oeuvres
 which ran from 6:00-7:30 PM; the cash bar ran from 7:30-11 PM. Servers circulated during "happy Hour" with hors d'oeuvres. The buffet dinner began at 7:30; there were plenty of sit-down tables for dining. Soup and salad was served at each table (mushroom soup, of course!) JoAnn Costa Baglini hired a PHOTOBOOTH and we all took pictures with our old and older friends-- the photographer supplied hats, props, etc. Chris Bokas contracted our DJ, Steve Kurtz from Crusin' 92.1, WVLT -- he was spectacular and kept things moving throughout the evening
 (http://www.wvlt.com/stevekurtz.html).  Kurtz was spinning oldies, standards and lots of music for dancing!

What a great weekend we all had -- perfect fall weather and just for good measure a full moon!
