The April 9th Lincoln Dinner was a resounding success. Delicious, authentic food was offered to 21 guests, many of whom were dressed in period costume. The meal was presided over by an elegant Mary Todd Lincoln portrayed by Melissa Hawk and Stan DeHaan as President Abraham Lincoln. Guests were transported back 150 years in time. Wonderful pictures were taken by "Captured By Dani". Be sure to check out her Facebook page!
Our compliments and thanks to Josh Van Ryswyk for this historic dinner. He is an outstanding chef. Also kudos to Mary Sue for her culinary efforts and the organization and planning that went into this event. No one else could have pulled this off!
The house is looking beautiful thanks to Kathy F and D-I-L Lisa F. They have done a wonderful job with the stairs and 2nd floor. Jen from Flowers Island brought centerpieces. Everyone pitched in to make the house glow! Wait staff was clad in period costume and aprons. Thanks so much to all the workers, servers, cleaners and photographers. It was truly a one of a kind event. Sorry you missed it?? You should be. Don't let the next one go by without attending!
