For those who missed it for one reason or another. This is what you missed. Some-how the leap year is to blame, either everything is happening all at once or it’s tomorrow!
This year the Bryant Park neighborhood held their Derby Day FUNd-raiser at a new location, and for the first time there was no entry fee. Mitch at the Beach Club offered the committee Happy Hour prices for both food and drink. Again many many merchants gave for the great prizes. Many more than seen here. No gaming allowed so if you purchased a 2 or 5 dollar ticket on a horse it was a blind draw. NO gambling. Same went for picks on the Jockey and again raffle prizes galore. Just about everyone went away a winner. Prizes were offered for the Most beautiful and of course just about all of them qualified alas, one winner chosen in each category. Then, this year a new category Most Creative
and all the creatives made a strong showing. Always a favorite the loudest shirt. No question who got that. Rick on the far left. and Ted B was disqualified for influence peddling the judges. lol. Some hats did not last, either the glitter started to fall off or it was way to heavy. Now there were ladies who do not like hats and they are consistent from year to year they were May, Judy, and Sandy and Tammy (next year i will make each one a chapeau) that’s if i’m around. Greeting friends from all neighborhoods as many from all supported this FUNdraiser.
