Hard Hats, Rivers and Bridges, oh my!

June 27th, 2011 · 7 Comments · Fundraiser, Important People, Musings, photo of the week

Hubby and I went to a great fundraiser evening for the Turners Falls River Culture — if you missed it, you missed some great fun!  There was great eats and drinks, a silent auction and a live auction (auctioneer was  Lou Ekus  of Holy Smokes – great auctioneer by the way!)!

The hats had been on display in several local places.  I had a good look at them when they were in Wilson’s Department Store windows, and thought well, it’s a fundraiser, I’ll think about it.

We arrived and chatted with some folks.  By the way, I do think hubby and I did pretty good coming up with clothing to go with the Black Tie and Blue Collar theme.  The picture at the end of the post isn’t the greatest of us (are pictures taken with automatic, run and get in front of the camera fast pictures ever good ones?); but you can see our costumes.  Hubby wore dress shoes, jeans, a rumpled shirt and the vest and black tie that goes with his tuxedo.  I wore the usual black dress with flannel shirt and my red cowgirl boots.  Fun to dress up and down at the same time.

So, did I guy a hat?  You bet.  Here’s the pictures.  The artist is Daniel A Brown — wonderful hat!  I’m not sure anyone should pay what I paid for a dressed-up hard hat — but it was a great cause.   I live in the next town over from Turner’s Falls; but it’s a little town going places with culture.

    Sharon, I think its a great picture of you Rich. It shows you’re still pretty good at ‘run and get in front of the camera’ . You need to worry when the picture features your backside cos you’re still running !!! We like it. D&Hx

    Thanks Jen. I hope you got to go home with one too! And, Lisa, I’ll be sure to send the picture of me in that hat on the first day of classes!

    I was sitting in the row in front of you. You guys looked great! And you bought a great hat.

  • Lisa

    I’ll be waiting for a picture of that!

    Thanks for your comment. We had a great time — and I’m already threatening to teach my college courses in that hat!

    Great blog Sharon! We loved seeing you and Rich at the event and especially your clever outfits. Glad you got Blue Skies and thanks for the support!
