Woo – woo – woo… Halloween !!!

Last night the International Women’s Club of Mérida (IWC) hosted  a party that many will long remember…  Seasonably “cool” weather, great decorations, yummy food, abundant drink, and  best of all… wonderful music made for an evening of fun.

Vic Jorgenson is to be thanked again and again for his excellent choice of music and his very animated DJ style.  He fretted because he had not included a couple of my requests (Wild Thing, Satisfaction and The Monster Mash) But hey!!!  Everyone got up and boogied like 16 year-olds to the Village People’s  Y.M.C.A., Marvin Gaye’s Soul Train, and Michael Jackson’s Thriller. (I bet there are many sore knees, backs and hips this morning!)

We were encouraged to wear costumes and most people did.  One plain clothes guest told me. “I came as myself… that’s scary enough!”  Prizes for best get-ups were given:  Beth and Jack Knepp with Theresa Gray won for “most original.” Jack made an excellent Sheik of Arable, while Beth and Theresa looked most fetching as his harem girls.  I wish I’d got a photo of LG as a refrigerator and “most elaborate ensemble” went to Britta, the ice queen. Another picture I missed was of Nancy Walters dressed as Cleopatra.

The club’s special awards were also handed out to Roberta Fertel for service, Beth Knepp for leadership and Vilma   Morey for lifetime achievement. Three very deserving recipients for sure!
