Well, all I can say is this Hikers Ball will be pretty nice. I unfortunately between my roofing business and shopping for so many things for The Hikers Ball has left me without an outfit. Uggh, there have definitely been some distractions in planning this Gala event. Turnout has been up and down. People have said its too expensive, others have said family obligations etc. Blah blah blah. As the creator of the event and one who sees how successful this could turn out to be in years to come I have to say ” Oh well”. I expect about 100 -125 people and we will have a great time. I suppose I was far too ambitious renting a place that can handle 225 people. The Woman’s Club is a truly Grand Place. The acoustics are perfect and with the band elevated on a stage, it should bring a pleasant dance environment. The caterer has been select as Gio’s https://giosfood.com/catering-menu/

So all is in place although I still have to pick-up the napkins and work out the goody bags and the Calendars. I expect the Calendars to be available for the ball and they will cost $20 each I ordered then with the thought in mind that people would enjoy them and everyone was a good sport. I would have liked to have planned things better but we made it to press. Now the question, can anyone stand to look at these pics for 12 months?

As I was writing this our photo screen showed up and I have not opened the box yet and I think that I will hold off until the day of so you might be standing in front of something odd if the shipped it wrong.
