Father Vernon invited hundreds of friends and family as he threw a wonderful party to celebrate his half-century mark. More than 300 were in attendance and all who came enjoyed wonderful food, music and fun in a true "Mardi Gras" style celebration. Father treated us to the likes red beans and rice with all the trimmings and oh those wonderful cakes (including King Cake straight from Mobile). At the door all were greeted with beads and moon pies as they signed his huge "picture birthday card." And Father practiced for weeks with the Mardi Gras song and it showed as he made his grand appearance.
Thanks to all who made this a truly wonderful celebration. Check out the photos below. And if you would like to order prints of the event (there are over 200 photos in all), you may do so from this website or contact the webmaster for a high-quality photo CD.
