A PARTY TO REMEMBER

Gala: There was lots going on at the Mercy Gala at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Besides VIP cocktails, dinner and a silent auction, there was a live concert with Runaway June, female country singers, and an after-party with DJ Kirby. Dr. Jesse Campbell and Dr. Chad Smith were gala co-chairmen.

Fun at a formal: Jane Jayroe Gamble was emcee and Don Armes was the evening's auctioneer. During dinner, there was a Diamonds Direct raffle, restaurant gift card pull, wine wall, and a Mexican vacation raffle. Then there was the silent auction: tickets to the Ellen Degeneres Show, vacations, artwork, bowling party, football tickets, shopping spree and jewelry and a lot more.

The next one: Jan. 17, 2020, is already set for the next gala.

ALL ACADEMIES MILITARY BALL

Event: The 38th annual Oklahoma All Academies Military Ball, honoring men and women of the five uniformed service academies and their families, was held at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club on Dec. 30. Members of the group attend the United States Military Academy at West Point, The United States Naval Academy, the United States Coast Guard Academy and the United States Merchant Marine Academy.

Program: Sen. James Lankford was guest speaker and Shannon Hill was chairman. Mark Reisweber was emcee. The Gov.'s Honor Guard and Oklahoma Pipes and Drums were on hand for the festivities.

LADIES ONLY

Bueno birthday: Sue Ann Hyde invited friends over to check out her beautiful southwestern- decorated new home. It was also her birthday, so guests celebrated with her.

Food/flowers: Orchids were set around the house and on the buffet table were large pillar candles set in horn lanterns. There were Nambe serving bowls and trays, as well as iron-encased bowls. Food choices were listed on a fact sheet, which included the Hydes' new address. Among them were chunky guacamole with pico de gallo, cheddar chive biscuits and chocolate mint shooters from The Pioneer Woman cookbooks; vegetarian pozole with pinto beans and poblano peppers from Oh My Veggie Cookbook; red chile Hummus and vegetable chips from the Santa Fe School of Cooking, and Santa Fe Chief sugar cookies from A Taste of Enchantment from the Albuquerque Junior League Cookbook; and pumpkin seed brittle from The Turquoise Room, Winslow, Az.

At the party: Guests included Kathy Walker, Marion Paden, Susan McPherson, Terri Cooper, Marilyn Meade, Susan Dobson, Meg Salyer, Judy Hatfield, Susan Hoffman, Barbara Beeler, Bette MacKellar, Janie Axton, Peg Malloy, Bev Kanaly, Cynda Ottaway, Linda Howell, Karen Browne, Carol Troy and Kirk Hammons.

Quotes: Several quotes were on the menu pamphlet. One of them was “A friend may well be reckoned a masterpiece of nature,” Ralph Waldo Emerson. Another was “Nobody sees a flower, really — it is so small — we haven't time, and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time,“ Georgia O'Keeffe.
