July 11, 2012 - Beach Party & Lunch at Ethel's
         (click on photo for larger image and back button to return)

Big turnout for Ethel Vandam's Beach Party & Lunch.  Ethel's artistic sense really showed in the fun decorations, beautiful flower arrangements, and table settings.   Some 15 salts had refreshing dips in the Gulf.  Others walked the beach or dipped in the pool.  Helen Gobudak was presented a Surprise Birthday Cake. Fashion stars were the "twins' Carol Crane and Penny Washburn in matching bathing suits.   Delicious dishes were brought by many and all had a great time.  Two of Ethel's friends aka "Giuseppi" and "Giuseppi's Chick" were a great help serving drinks, food, and cleaning up.
