Mat is the youngest of the 10 Mulholland children and his talk was filled with heartwarming memories.
Did you know that Wayne once manufactured potato chips? The Gates family (remember Gates furniture?) owned a beer store at 3113 Wayne Rd, between Ash and Elm St. In the front part of the store they sold beer, but in the back of the store they made potato chips and sold them by the bag. “Wild Bill” was just a teenager then, but still remembers his great job—helping with the manufacture of those potato chips. YUM!
After the decorating we adjourned to the Congregational Church Parlor for a very special luncheon. Betty Dryer was awarded a lifetime membership in the Garden Club—and after being a member for 65 years she certainly deserves the honor.
Mrs. Dryer looked lovely in a black suit adorned with swatches of lavender around the edge of the jacket.
She spoke lovingly of her late husband, Dr. Dryer, and his devotion and work at Annapolis Hospital. She was part of the hospital’s Women’s Auxiliary.
Pastor Chris Richards also came by to congratulate Mrs. Dryer.
It’s always a gala affair—not only for the good food, but also the fun of seeing old and new friends.
All the funds from the “Christmas Bells are Ringing” will be spent for food baskets, which will be given to needy families.
If you didn’t get a chance to shop after your meal, it’s my understanding that extra shopping time will be available after the Sunday Church Service. Many beautiful gift items are for sale, for babies, grandparents and everyone in between.
