Ten years ago, many of us had the pleasure to celebrate the “coming of age of Stan”!! The celebration took the form of a Dinner Party at Fatz Classy Restaurant in Hendersonville. We all had a Great Time!!
AND, Lois and I had the good fortune to attend another celebration, this time on Sep. 5th, 2009! This celebration took place at the Shuffleboard Club in Hendersonville. The 2009 celebration saw Stan sort of “Catch up”!! At least he moved into the same decade as I!! Pix above are all from the 2009 Celebration.
I thought it would be appropriate to have a look back at that special party of 10 years ago. Here is the article I posted on The Shuffler at that time.
THE QUINNS HOST A CELEBRATION!!
Sandi Quinn, most travelled reporter for THE SHUFFLER, not only has an ability to make her reports interesting, she has panache when it comes to hosting a party~~especially when that party is to celebrate the birthday of husband Stan!! On Monday evening a group of us got together for dinner at Fatz~~which is a first class eating establishment for those who may not know. Fatz policy; any wine not drank at the end of the evening will be bottled and may be taken with you~~it was not necessary to invoke their policy!! The wine and the tasty food made for good conversation between and among the many friends gathered to help Stan as he officially enters the age category of a Senior! At the appropriate time the staff came to the table, led us all in a rousing version of Happy Birthday, and then left Stan with the wonderful dessert. It was such a generous helping that Stan passed it around the entire table~~no one could resist, and when it returned there was still a bit left. All had a great time. The get-together demonstrated that we all can continue to have good fun, to enjoy a party~~AND most everyone felt “real good” the next day!!! (Others ended up in the consolation event!!) It was a great event! All of us wish Stan a very Happy Birthday!!
2014 remark: Lois and I take this opportunity to extend Birthday Wishes to Stan. We could think of no better way than to spend yet ANOTHER birthday celebration with so many Shuffleboard Friends in Hendersonville!!
