Nassau Bay Garden Club members launched their 50th anniversary celebration with their 2014 luncheon and style show at Lakewood Yacht Club.
The popular biennial luncheon, “Celebrating 50 years of ‘Flowers, Friendship and Fun’ and co-chaired by Nancy Guthrie and Audrey Legendre, featured fashions from Dillard’s at Baybrook Mall modeled by club members – including retired Clear Creek school superintendent Dr. Sandra Mossman; artist Kelly Halbach; attorney Win Weber, who serves on the school board; and interior designer Laurie Vaughn.
Others joining them on the runway modeling some beautiful spring and summer fashions were Diana Denman, Jana Reed, Susan Benson, Becky Smith, Linda Dunk, Kathryn Gehbauer, Cherry Nims, Joy Edwards, Dina Doebbler, Jayne Samson, Jenni Hudgins, Tuie Lee and Donna Stoa.
Much to the delight of Ellen King, Pat Bertelli, Eva deCardenas, Joyce Abbey, Cheryl and Jennifer Matter, Joyce Magliolo, Micki Czarnik, Sharon Maaz, Maurita Gallagher, Mary Ann and Mandy Stillwell, Kathleen Kearnes, Betsy Lake, Diane Gillebaard, Karen and Barbie Morris and Gail Newberry.
Special guests introduced by President Betty Armstrong included Nassau Bay Mayor Mark Denman and City Manager Chris Reed, who came with their wives, Diana and Jana, and sat with Harris County Constable Phil Sandlin and UHCL Associate Professor Dr. James Benson and his wife, Susan – not far from Amoco Federal Credit Union President Shawn Bailey and Business Development Director Kevin Venable.
