Woman’s Club Luau
The Woman’s Club hosted a luau for members and guests at the beautiful club house on Hillsboro Rd.
The theme was Blue Hawaii, based on Elvis Presley’s movie of the same name. Many of those on hand dressed as if they were attending a luau, wearing bright clothing, leis and even grass skirts.
Elvis impersonator Danny McCorkle provided entertainment, and two wives of members of the Jordanaires spoke about the group’s work with Presley.
The vocal quartet that formed as a gospel group in 1948 was known for providing background vocals for Presley in live appearances and recordings from 1956 to 1972.
Charlize Matthews and Jean Stoker told lots of interesting stories about those days with Presley.
Colorful decorations abounded and each table’s centerpiece was a beautiful orchid plant.
The dinner, centered around a “shrimp boil,” was prepared by Chef Michael of Menu Maker Catering.
Watermelon shooters were served as appetizers and the meal included shrimp, Andouille sausage, potatoes, corn on the cob, slaw, and strawberry pie.
