St. Andrew High School Old Girls’ Association, Florida, hosted their Spring Luncheon on Saturday, May 15, 2004, at the Perfect Season Ballroom of Don Shula’s Golf Club in Miami Lakes.
Over 100 alumni and friends showed up for this event, and a great time was had by all. The steering committee, led by Marguerite Davis-Graham, provided an afternoon of fun and entertainment, which included such events as a silent auction, gallery of fine art by artists Hilroy Fingal, Reggie Webb-Harris and Al Lane, belly dancing by Shani of the Gypsy Tribe, music by Steel Away and give-a-ways galore. SuperClubs donated the gate prize for a 4-day/3-night stay at the Grand Lido in Negril. Joan Figueroa was the lucky winner.
Dana Crawford kept the crowd in stitches as emcee along with the talented Marcia Barry-Smith, by day a bank manager, but on demand a stand up comic and tea leaf reader. Marcia provided the gathering with a rendition of the Annie of Rose Hall story with her own brand of Jamaican labrish. Sharon Wallen did the invocation.
Over the past year, SAHS Old Girls’ Association has provided the school with funding for three scholarships, participation in the Penn Relays, $1,000 toward remodeling of the canteen and donations to the breakfast feeding program.
The organization would like to thank all our supporters, with special recognition for: The planning committee, headed by Denise Goldson Rau, Ann Webb-Harris – decorations, Dana Street-Crawford and Novelette Thompson – Entertainment, Andrea Tyrell and Joan Muir – advertisement, Mary Ann Raymond – mailing lists, Diane Lyon-Wead – Newsletter and questionnaire, Aileen Tate and Diane Neal – donations, Sharon Wallen – planning, Marcia Cassidy – photography, Barbara Trewick – accounting and Gina Jarrett – activities.
