A 50th B-day Celebration

During Labor Day weekend, current Olympia residents and ex-pats alike celebrated Calvin Johnson’s 50th birthday at the South Bay Grange Hall. Tea was served and guests were encouraged to bring pie or other pastries for afternoon gnoshing. Dancing was to follow. It was a beautiful afternoon and time well spent with good friends and acquaintances.

Welcome signs!
