Class of 1999 Reunion

On Saturday night, the Cartersville High School Class of 1999 celebrated our ten year reunion!  It was a lot of work for those of us on the planning committee, and it was a lot of stress as we got down to the wire and worried that we wouldn't have enough money, but everything wound up being absolutely great!

The party was held at Stonewall Manor, an event venue in downtown Cartersville.  We had a ton of food on the buffet... a carving station with two meat choices, meatballs, lots of hot dips and chips, cheese trays, veggie trays, fruit trays, a pasta bar, cheesy mashed potatoes... and more!  I can't even remember it all - It was so much food.  We had great live entertainment: the band Babe's Bayou played for us - they're an alt-country group -  interspersed with a dance mix of music while they took breaks.  We had about 100 people in attendance, which was a great turn out!  (There was about 145 or so people in our graduating class, and we had more than a third of the graduates come to the reunion.)  There was lots of great catching up, eating and drinking, dancing, and - of course - picture taking!  Here are a few of my favorite shots from the night...

Saunders and I won Class Sweethearts!

Lesley and me - we've been friends since we were in first grade together, and we worked together on the planning committee to organize the reunion!

The last picture of you is HILARIOUS!!! It looks like y'all had a great time, what a wonderful turnout! Since our class president is now a pro football player (Andre Fluellen... "CATCH THE FLU" won the ballot for him) I wonder if we'll ever have a reunion at all....
You looked great! I especially loved your pink blouse, it was so thinning... or, is it that you're just really thin now? ;)
