On Dec. 16, Joanne Walker hosted an annual Christmas luncheon at her Marietta home for a group of nine friends that have celebrated together for 50 years. The group recently threw a jewelry party at the Marietta home of Mary Suhr, raising money for a family that was being evicted from their home. The ladies made it possible for the children to have Christmas and for the family to stay in the home.
The fabulous nine include: Nan Durham, Sarah Farrar, Nancy Ryle, Anne Stribling, Mary Suhr, Anne Ray, June Vreeland and Joanne Walker. Lindy Suhr Wyche and Tricia Walker Wilson were helpers, servers and elves.
