‘Rosies’ abound at Camp Gordon Johnston Days

A well-attended gala dinner dance on Saturday night at C-Quarters Marina offered a festive close to the weekend. Property Appraiser Rhonda Skipper and her family greeted attendees at the door, and this year’s queens from the 2014 Miss Seahawk Pageant, together with students from Stephanie Howze Jones’ class, served up a delicious meal of fried or baked chicken, or ham.

Minichiello presented Carrabelle restaurateur Ken La Paz with a plaque honoring him for service to the museum. Minichiello said he has supported the museum with money and food.

“He’s one great guy and very active in the community,” Minichiello said.

He said Jimmy Crowder would also receive a plaque for donating the use of C-Quarters for the dance.

Dressed in cowboy attire, Greg Kristofferson, from American Legion Post 82 in Lanark Village, spun tunes all night long, with several people stepping forward to sing tunes in tribute to the World War II era.

Lanark Village magazine publisher Chuck Spicer, and musician Jack Zurawka, sung many of the songs, as they took turns with songstresses Brenda La Paz, Evelyn McAnally, Shirley Cox and Ann Merrell, each of the ladies, dressed as Rosie the Riveter, having helped with serving and clearing tables all evening.

The show featured such numbers as “Sing, Sing, Sing,” “If I Didn’t Care,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Accentuate the Positive,” “You are My Sunshine,” and “That Old Black Magic.”
