Spent a lovely Sunday afternoon at a party to celebrate the 50th "Golden" wedding anniversary of Linda and Cec, who were married on November 4, 1967. The party was held at the home of their daughter and son-in-law at their new home. It was very well organized with a beautiful presentation of savoury and sweet foods, wine, and all the table settings such as napkins, place settings, cutlery having a "gold" theme. The TV had a rotating slide show of many happy occasions in the life of Linda and Cec, especially their many cruises.
I was happy to meet a few fellow classmates from high school at this event, where we shared memories of long ago and got caught up to date on the more recent years. I was a bridesmaid for Linda and enjoyed looking at the old wedding pictures and Linda's wedding dress which she can still get into!
Here I am in my bridesmaid dress which I made myself. It is emerald green brocade. I was so tiny then!
As one of the bridesmaids, I gave a bridal shower for Linda with the assistance of my mother, who was a close friends of Linda's mother, at our home. It was a "Jobie" shower, with the girls from Bethel 23, South Burnaby. Here is Linda with the traditional apron made with all the gift bows!
