The spacious veranda at the Dancing Rabbit Golf Club was the site of a luncheon celebrating Mary Ellen Booker, PHS Class of 2021, on Saturday, May 1, 2021. It was a perfect day for an outdoor event.

Round tables covered with white cloths and centerpieces of colorful bouquets of spring flowers were arranged with a view of the golf club grounds. Each table setting was marked with a special keepsake menu with a miniature mortarboard and a white frosted cookie with "Class of 2021" written in pink icing anchoring the menus in place at the top. 

A personal touch was one of Mary Ellen's senior pictures displayed on each table. All of the guests looked so pretty in their spring outfits. It was a very festive event.

Mary Ellen's guests were Emma Taylor, Emily Booker, Kara Daly, Mary Kate Moran, Markasta Dupree, Makayla Evens, Adriana Rush and Kaya Tucker. Hostesses for this delightful party were Gina Moorehead, Tammy Moore, Amy Johnston, Wendy Smith and Lee Ann Fulton.

Josh Burton entertained the guests playing his guitar and singing. The evening ended with a game of Cornhole. It was a fun, casual gathering in a beautiful setting.
