St. Raphael's Crystal Ball

 Wednesday, March 3, 1999






Bill and Angela West.

Rather dance than eat: Eleanor and Bill O'Shaughnessy.

A crystal ball is a glass globe used in crystal gazing. By slowly waving your hands over the top of the crystal ball, an image should appear. Do you think that was what happened in1990, when Father's Tom Walsh and Stan Kromer of St. Raphael's Church thought that it would be nice for the parish to get together, socially, to welcome new members and become acquainted?. A committee was appointed and everyone became involved and the annual dinner dance was born.

This years theme "Crystal Ball" was in recognition of the new millennium. If this years happening is an indication of what is to come socially, then future events will be successful. The Crystal Ball was

Sunday at Boca Royale Golf and Country Club, both dining rooms were needed as they had a

wonderful turnout. Menu choices were chicken or beef and for dessert, yummy cheesecake. Music was provided by Jimmy Jay's Trio, they are great entertainers and play the best dance music in town.

To make the ball a special one many committees were formed. The decoration committee consisted of Charlie and Carol Palmer and Dick and Betty Mayer. Committee chairpersons were Walter and Millie Ambrogi, Charlie and Carol Palmer. Sales


persons were Ralph and Sylvia Wiggins, Jim and Johanna Glaser, Maury and Irene Bolster, Floyd and Donna Stroegbeuer, Bob and Bernie Farrell, Marv and Carol Peschel, Barry and Millie Peterson, and Marge Sherman.
