I apologize, in advance, for those of you whom I have spoken with about local news. I have been having major computer issues and am working on those as I type this!

Leslie Swords was honored with a beautiful “Elvis themed” birthday party, given for her by her parents, Vicki and Frank Swords. Guests were greeted at the steps of Montrose by a gigantic guitar and a lifelike mannequin of Elvis. Inside, party-goers found gorgeous cakes celebrating not only her birthday, but her college graduation. There was also a guitar signed by Eric Clapton on display. The trees around the gardens at Montrose were luminated softly by white and red lanterns. An Elvis impersonator captivated the audience with his songs and familiar “Elvis-like” characteristics. A beautiful ice sculpture was the centerpiece on the buffet table, which had a wide array of food from catfish to seafood. The party was a glorious affair and a night that will not soon be forgotten. Happy birthday, Leslie!
