|Eileen, QM Shirley & Doris holding our banner
which we will use in the August 25 Heritage Day parade. QM Shirley will miss the actual parade and will instead
be cruising on a riverboat!
|We put on our own version of a breakfast pajama party which we held in the MCV dining room. We invited Queen Mother Ailene Bell and her Scarlet Sisters to join us. We had a blast as you can see from the picture. We even had our own chef Wayne, (who is blocking the Queen!) and Anita, Director of Food Services.

|Mary and Maude. With Maude's background as an English teacher in Japan, she and Mary decided to treat us to an oriental tea at the local Arloi Dee restaurant. They bedecked our tables with souvenir items from
Maude's stay in Japan.
|Five days to go! Hurry, hurry, hurry, we need to get the hat ready
for the big parade!
|What a happy smile! And why not, Dorothy just won the grand prize at Dillards' red hat shopping day.|
