We were up in Waupaca, Wisconsin, where Jim was Mayor
for a couple of terms. He was honored as "Mayor of the
Century" for his influence in having a lovely
Library/City Hall built during his tenure. "How 'bout
that for a legacy?"
festivities were June, 25, 26, 27 and included a pontoon
boat ride on the Chain of Lakes, a Margaritaville beach
party, renewal of vows - with all 8 original attendants
walking down the aisle again! There was constant music (50s
style, of course...and a few other things thrown in) after
dinner and dancing, and dancing, and dancing. On Sunday,
there was a corn roast at a wonderful lakefront park.
of visuals of us during what was as perfect a weekend as
could be: Jim Boyer and Joyce (Darrah)'s 50th wedding
anniversary, and there's one pic (copy) from the actual
wedding. Need any help with names? Recognize anyone?
just something special and magical that happens whenever
we get together ... the feeling that we're all about
17-18 years old (most of the time) and the idea that it
always seems as if we were together just last week...or
seemed to have worked for the weather, too! It was just
lucky to have come from a special place and during a
special time...and be able to recreate the feelings of
fun and fellowship that we share.
us every one. Friends are good. I love youse.
