A historical presentation of The Little Black Dress, modeled in vintage dresses covering the nine decades our garden club has been celebrating this year, in the grandeur of the magnificent Medinah Country Club.
More than 130 women, elegantly attired in black and pink, green and white, tailored and flowing, long and short, sipping drinks and chatting with friends as they perused more than twenty artistically adorned raffle baskets.
A delectably plated luncheon of tomato bisque soup, salad topped with warm chicken, and this pièce de résistance.
It was a remarkably memorable afternoon. Two wonderful women, my friends, were honored as Women of the Year. Our garden club members and their guests forgot their worries and troubles for a few hours, or, at least felt those burdens lift. They were, hopefully, feeling as special as they are in this all-too- brief but very special moment in time
