The body is a device to calculate the astronomy of the spirit.
We provide the community a wedding without a bride and groom. Seriously.
It is for the kids, or as Tracy says, "It is for the CHILL-dren."
It is for the adults to enjoy a fun night out. You spend a few hundred dollars in tough economic times to help your community. To express pride in your school district. To toast each other for being nearly done with the school year.
You may win big at the gaming tables. You may lose. You may win the coveted seats to graduation with the even more coveted preferred parking space. Or maybe you win the tickets to see LIVE with Kelly & Michael. Or a week of dinners out. Or a beauty basket. Or a round of golf for four.
Then again, you may not win a blessed prize, but, since everyone gets a favor (I told you, it's a wedding) you don't leave empty handed. It is THE place to be tonight. I know this because we had people RSVPing at ten o'clock last night AFTER we had all the tables figured out.
I mentioned the amazing committee in yesterday's post.
Here's to us. May it be our best year yet.
