1981 was even better the 2nd time around last night when AWBS members, family and friends had the house a rocking!! I knew we were a great group but I had no idea we were the consumate party animals! The Runnymede-on-Thames hotel set the tone with lovely welcome drinks while we all hobnobbed with celebrities like Cher, Bruce Springsteen, Rod Stewart, Boy George, Madonna, Adam Ant, Beatle Juice and many more of the poshest people.
During our delicious 3 course meal we learned a bit about our club history through a video, 1981 quiz questions via powerpoint, and a little slide show of more club photos during the dancing. Your husbands and friends now know what has been keeping you energized, entertained, involved and inspired with AWBS activities, travel, Craft Fayre and other charitable opportunities.
After a trip or several to the dessert bar the dancing started with a bang, thanks to our wonderful DJ (David Ricards with TONIC PARTIES) who knew exactly what would get us up to show off those hot dance moves. As it was only 1981, and smart phones were not around yet we took smart party snaps in a posh Photo Booth! See pictures below.
Many thanks and kudos to everyone for packing the room with good vibrations, and especially to my wonderful team who made this all possible: Sunny Shroff, Maria Hayes, Michelle McGowan, Sandhya Koppikar, Suzanne Jewell, Susan Lidback and the additional decorating crew of Magda Meyerhoff (and hubby) and tear down crew who stayed late to take all the 1981 photos off the walls!!
