Treppa Style Fish Fry . . .

East Riverwood Fish Fry!
THANK YOU
Chuck and Donna Treppa . . .

Happy Birthday & Retirement to Donna . . .

Huge thanks to fisherman Chuck for "catching" the walleye and perch.

Sometimes you just have to enjoy Deep Fried Fish YUM . . .
plus cakes, cookies, pies, desserts, cheesy potatoes, beans, coleslaw, corn bread,
macaroni & cheese, poppy seed salad, fruit salads, cheese, crackers . . .
you name it . . .
we neighbors made sure all the "sides" were there!

Beautiful evening . . . Inside and outside . . .
There were 40 of us plus 7 littles and Libby the dog!

The evening ended with a roaring camp fire . . .



I had so much fun dreaming up the cake decorations for Donna . . .
I printed off family photos, cut them down like "stick people".
Added backing and stick picks so they would stand up amongst the greeting . . .

Happy Birthday
Happy Retirement Donna . . .

Didn't turn out exactly as I planned but I had a great time creating!
(Wish I had remembered to take the cake out of the box!)

Notice the tiny pic of Donna holding the '8' flag??
She scored a Hole In One a few weeks ago!
Added "golf wizard" to her title . . .

Warmer than burnt toast here today but we are off to enjoy the Irish Festival . . .
Pictures to follow, I promise . . .

Fall is in the air . . .
Bring out the orange . . .
Enjoy these September days . . .
Slainte' . . .

What a fun, fun time! And super delicious, too! I'll have to remember cutting the little people for a cake -- that's a great idea!

What a great evening, and looks like everyone enjoyed it. I would like some "fall" back in the air, this is too hot to be mowing my grass.

Looks like a good time was had by all! The best gatherings are those that include family, friends, and people of all ages. Great decorations. :)
