Girls Night Out! What a weekend! After a month of planning, a group of 10 ladies from the Hobart High School Class of 1987 were finally able to get together for dinner and lots of laughs.
Some of us met because we were neighbors, some on the fields of Hobart girls softball or in elementary school, but all of us were together in junior high and have since had a friendship that can never be matched.
There hasn’t been a life event that any of us have missed and that is one of the many reasons why Hobart is an important part of my life — living here brought me them. So to Kelly, Suzanne, Amy, Lorie, Ginny, Gayle, Lynn, Michele, Jackie … Love you!
Locks of Love for Kids with Cancer benefit: That night, we saw the Allen Wronko Band play. Allen and John Leonard are both friends/classmates and boy, did they put on a great show.
Don’t miss the opportunity to see these guys perform from 5 to 11 p.m. Friday, March 15, at the Hobart Art Theater for an all-age event. Also performing that night is Mr. Right and The Difference.
Food, drinks and silent auction available all benefitting the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Call Jason Lach at 730-0427 for more information.
