50th Anniversary Celebration At Andon-Reid Inn

Ron and I have been so fortunate to meet outstanding guests at our bed and breakfast. The families we meet are all so special. The O'Neal/Renegar/East family is just that! Jim and Joanne decided that they wanted to spend their 50th wedding anniversary at our Inn with their children. What an honor. The first night Allyson, Mike, Terri and Gregg decided to take their parents to the Grove Park Inn for the award winning seafood buffet. They all came back with big smiles and full bellies. But it was the second night that had all the sentimental touches that brought back memories of their childhood. The story goes that whenever they took their yearly family trip to Florida, Joanne and Jim had to stop just at the border and have a picnic. This became a ritual. That's just what we did here. We set up a picnic in our back yard around our firepit, surrounded by the mountains and had a fantastic BBQ. Friend and Chef, Jackie Blevins catered a wonderful dinner filled with shrimp, ribs, chicken, homemade potato sald, coleslaw and heirloom tomato salad, straight from her garden. What a feast! There was lots of picture taking, laughter, stories, catching fireflies and more memories to be had.Joanne and Jim...you should be very proud of your 50 years together and the beautiful family you have created.

This is what Innkeeping is all about.
