Baby Boomers Patio Party

Susan Parker

What do you get when you put 100 Baby Boomers with 63 pounds of smoked chicken, 24 pounds of loaded potato salad, 12 bags of lettuce, 24 cans of black bean corn salad, and 252 cheesecake bites? Baby Boomers Patio Parties!

Four couples stepped forward to each host 25 Boomers for a first course of salad with all the fixings. After the first course of salad, the Boomers went to a different home for the main meal and dessert. The brave souls who volunteered to host the first and second courses were Gayle and Jerry Lee, Lorraine and Steve Hecker, Carol and Ralph Jankowski, and Susan and David Parker.

Before each get-together, new and veteran Boomers mingled over BYOB drinks and furnished ice tea and water. The first-ever Baby Boomers Patio Parties were a great success! New friendships were made, and everyone left with positive comments on the event. Make sure to look for the second annual patio event next spring.

Mark your calendar for the October Boomers event on Oct. 24 at the Wildhorse Grill from 5 to 8 p.m. Just like last year, we will be having a Halloween costume contest and, by popular demand, the Stewart Brothers will be providing entertainment.
