The 38th annual Progressive Dinner was held in Jonesborough on Saturday evening. We have attended this event for several years and always enjoy seeing the unique old homes and having one course of our meal in each of them. We register at the Chester Inn Museum where we are treated to warm cider.
The toast was presented by one of our favorite young men, Kelly Wolfe. He is the mayor of Jonesbourgh and we just love him! He always makes us laugh.
There is live music at each location. Here at the Historic Eureka Inn, the music was provided by Eileen Collie. She is a student who will be soon leaving for college where she will be studying engineering.
I am wearing a red turtleneck knit top with faux leather and Ponte pants from Chico's. The jacket is by French Connection via Saks Off 5th. The red leather gloves are from S.M. Bradford Co. on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. I think I found the red scarf at Target. None of the items are new, but you can likely find something similar in your own closet or wherever you shop since most of my choices are fairly basic.
The music at the Panhorst/Floyd home was provided by Joseph Sobol.
Jonesborough is the oldest town in the state of Tennessee.
Students of the Harrington Music Studio provided the music for the main course at The McKinney Center at Booker T. Washington School.
We enjoyed dessert at the Oak Hill School which is a one-room schoolhouse with a pot-bellied stove. The schoolhouse was still in use as recent as the 1950's. Wonderful holiday music was provided by The Jonesborough Novelty Band.
Mr. Mickey is back to looking like the dapper gent that he is. He enjoys this sing along with bells more than anyone!
Thank you so much for your kind comments this week. We love sharing our lives with you and we hope to do so for many years to come.
Thank you for joining us on this wonderful journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
