My History with the Group
One of the girls from this group introduced me to my husband. Her sixteenth birthday(click to read this story.) was our first date. Now, all these years later, she would be my roommate for our 70th birthday celebration.
Twenty-two of us gathered to celebrate our 70th birthdays together in the beautiful Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Yes, much has changed over the years, but in so many ways, nothing has changed. Those friendships deeply rooted in our youth have flourished over the years as some have gathered quarterly for over twenty-five years. We missed those who could not attend dearly and thought of them often.
This quote also came to mind so often during the weekend:
Your heart and my heart are very old friends.
|Our Party Planner|
The hostess for each gathering usually has a co-hostess who serves as a backup hostess just in case of emergency. The hostess provides the main dish. PS makes sure we have desserts, salads, and sides assigned to all attending. She even maintains a group photo album that includes a group photo from every gathering since the very first one. PS had the vision of a 70th birthday party, and we actually made it a reality! Thank you, PS!
