 “Silver Reflections”

March 26 at 11 am

I still remember my parents’ 25th anniversary clearly. My aunts and uncles put together a money tree with silver dollars hanging from clips all over it and we all dressed up and went to Win Schuler’s Restaurant in Marshall, MI for a fancy dinner with linen tablecloths and coleslaw made with whipped cream. OK, so I don’t remember ALL the details, but it was a big celebration! So much had happened since they married in 1940 and Dad went off to fly supply planes across China during the war. They were grateful that he had returned safely and that they could raise their 4 children in peacetime. We were grateful that we got to order steak! But so much had happened in those 25 years.

A group of Deercreek friends got together 25 years ago, to form our Deercreek Home and Garden Club to help beautify our neighborhood and began the long list of projects given to Deercreek. So many things have happened here during those 25 years too. Trees planted and lit, flowerbeds made, benches set out, flagpoles erected, deer statues set to welcome us home, electric lines run out to the street so we could light the new Holiday Decorations and the list goes on.

On March 26 we will be celebrating our Silver Anniversary at the Fashion Show and Luncheon with beautiful silver decorations and memory photos of the things we have accomplished. Plan to come and bring your friends to see the fabulous Spring fashions from Dillards and bid on the wonderful Gift Baskets, Designer Handbags and upscale gifts. Tickets cost $35 each and you can ask Julia Watkins for enough to fill your table of ten. Julia’s contact details are 312-4017 or Raffle tickets are only sold at the Fashion Show so bring along some extra cash. 1/$5, 3/$10, 7/$20 and 20/$50. This sells out quickly, so make your reservations soon!
