I arrived early and was able to get some fun shots of some of the wonderful folks who put on this grand affair, folks I now refer to as friends having had the pleasure of working with them many times over the years.
American Village is made up of many buildings and the event was so that different building housed different events throughout the night. Of course the building I was in all evening-being that I was working- was the President's House, where I wore my photographer hat for the night. My sweet friend, Charnita occupied me. Here she is in front of the President's Home.
Before the night was over, Governor Bentley so kindly had his picture taken with me.....photographed by my friend and photographer herself, Charnita.
