From Evergreen in August, 1992...
Sarah and Les are celebrating 25 years of wedded bliss--what started here in 1992 and became: DC, Virginia, Colorado, babies, diapers, dogs, cars, houses, grad school, soccer, baseball, hockey, and cross country competitions, and lots and lots of laughs with wonderful family and friends. Some people renew their vows for their 25th anniversary; we decided we wanted to have another wedding reception, or really just a big-ass Colorado country party, with live music, good food, beer...
We're throwing an all-day party to celebrate, hosted by our fantastic friends Katie and Wade Ulfig at their fabulous Wagon Wheel Ranch. Weather permitting, we will hold the party outside; hopefully we'll get that same weather from 1992. We'll have great music from several bands, good eats, a few libations, and fun things for young and old alike. There will be activities for the youngsters, and well, we already described what's for the grown-ups. We'll coordinate transportation to and from the party from locations in Evergreen...
We'll kick off the day with the Sweeneypalooza Beer Run, which will probably be as terrible as it sounds. Details here for the brave/stupid. The party will start at 1:00 pm, and music will get rolling shortly after. We'll have eats and libations ready to go!
The night before the party, we'll kick off the weekend and get together at renowned Evergreen saloon Cactus Jack's for a happy hour with The Traveling Pillsburys.
