Mother and Daughter Banquet
Erie Street Freewill Baptist Church

Rainey, Stephanie and Alex before the banquet.
Saturday, I had the privilege of attending a Mother and Daughter Banquet with Stephanie, Alex and Rainey at the Erie Street Freewill Baptist Church. I didn't know many people. We had a fun time and a good meal. The theme for the Banquet was the 1950's. Most of the young girls and some of the older ones all wore poodle skirts, bobby socks, hair in ponytails, and tennis shoes. It was all so cute.

Here are some of the young and older girls with their poodle skirts on. It was a lot of fun, to be enjoyed by everyone.

Alex and Rainey are on the far right of the picture and Stephanie is second from right on the floor.

There was a great turn out for the event. It was nice to see so many mothers and daughters enjoying the fun and festivities. Staying with the 1950's theme, the menu for the banquet, was hamburgers and hot dogs. After the meal we were treated to a banana split or a sundae. Great food and lots of good fellowship.
Stephanie made a new friend Saturday. A little 4 year old girl named Brianna. She was very friendly and very talkative. She was cute as a button and we enjoyed her so very much.

A poem for Mothers and Daughters.
Mothers and Daughters

Were daughters and mothers

Not so long ago

We give and take

And take and give

Along time's endless row.

Love is passed

And love received

To be passed on again

A precious heirloom

Twice, Twice blessed

A spiritual cardigan.

I'll put it on

And treasure it

The me I have received

And when the roles

reverse again

I'll have what I most need.

So may our love

Go on and on

A hundred thousand years

Mothers and daughters

And Daughters and mothers

Through joys and other tears.
