We beat the roosters up again as we had to prepare things for the evening party. Colleen was a BIG HELP as she ran errands and helped us get ready to go. By 3:00 PM, we were prepared for the catering staff to arrive and begin setting up tables, putting on table clothes, arranging the various food/beverage tables, and setting up the bar.
