The dinner was a sellout, and the crowd was treated to a special evening. The round tables draped with beautiful red table cloths were each decorated by women of the society who furnished their own fine china and silver.
Table decorators included: Shelia Young; Jo Anne Jump and Sue Wilkins; Nola McMillen and Edna Haynes; Cindy Halog and Donna Youngblood; Kay Lombard; Vivian and Jim Hight; Jill Paden; Becky Roskob; Barbara Hickman; Betty Lamberson; and Beverly Riddle.
