RACHEL MYERS RETIREMENT PARTY

The below pixs were taken at the Wadesboro Church of God Fellowship Hall on 09-09-05.  I have them archived on a back-up CD and just now got around to reducing the file size for web publishing.  The camera I used back then was an Olympus Stylus 400 at a whopping 4 Mega pixel maximum file size.  I have taken some decent pixs with the camera over the years but in a large room with mixed lighting, it leaves a lot to be desired since it is basically a point and shoot camera without many manual adjustments and/or options other than fixed programs.

I don't remember the details of who headed up the retirement party or the Master of Ceremonies, but there were many relatives and friends along with employees from Rachel's former employer Wade Mfg., Co., Inc. that were there.

HOME COOKED AND GRILLED VITTLES

That is some good looking food there and I certainly did help myself as soon as I put the camera down. 

FELLOWSHIP AROUND THE TABLE

CAKE CUTTING TIME

ENTERTAINMENT

Vernon Harris who married one of Rachel's sisters Janet, provided some homespun entertainment and he is a ball of fun especially with the kids.  He has a pile of stuff on his person to keep you grinning and laughing.  Also, Ann Porter did a song or two and others gave short talks as well.

GIFT OPENING TIME AND MISC. PIXS

In closing, I do remember that it was an excellent retirement party and Rachel gave a good motivational talk.  It took me seven (7) years down the road from Rachel's Retirement Party before I could join the ranks of retired folks and I have enjoyed every day.  I tell folks that I have only found one thing wrong with retirement and that is, "You never get a day off".......grin if you must!

God has certainly blessed Rachel and Wink Myers because they practice what they preach and live true Christian lives dedicated to serving God through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, their Church and fellowman.  I am proud to be one of Rachel's many Brother-in-Laws and consider her a good friend!
