A Night In The Tropics

Beautiful lilies, good friends, rhythmic music, tasty food and unusual plants – what more could one ask. Perfect weather? We had that too! The lily ponds have never looked better! Inside the Jewel Box, Brenda greeted everyone, supplying name tags written in tropical colored inks. Facing her were Alice’s photo displays of the Saturday morning Jewel Box volunteers at work, and the many colorful lilies in the ponds. The 2008 Pond-O-Rama slide show was running. Rhythmic tropical music floated through the building. Tables had colorful covers and napkins, and flowers were everywhere. We visited, enjoyed a luscious meal, learned about unusual tropical plants and gave awards to¬†six deserving people. There were even lots of door prizes! Pam, you really know how to throw a terrific party!
