Jane was telling me that Justin has finally decided to accept the scholarship offer at the University of Alabama. That’s the university that his father attended, so they are very proud and happy that he has made that decision. Now they are going to be planning a big farewell bash to be held right before he leaves for school later this year. They are inviting a lot of friends and family and are reserving the community center’s biggest function room for the big party.
Sounds as if they are going to be going all-out with this celebration; catering will be done by Jane’s sister Elise. The food will not be an entire supper, though, it is more of a snacks, cake and beverages type of party. Elise has been in the catering business for years, and she makes some really beautiful cakes. They are going to hire a professional DJ to play music so all of the guests will be able to dance the night away.
Jane and I went online to look for inexpensive Alabama apparel to buy to use as going-away for Justin. She decided to order four short sleeved University of Alabama shirts; three for Justin and one for his father to wear at home.
