CY Society – September
Kristina Preslar and Daniel Atlas of Oliver Avenue enjoyed a trip to Puerto Rico for Dan’s birthday in late June. This picture was taken at La Mina Falls, in the El Yunque National Rainforest, where you could swim right under the falls!
Nelson Avenue residents Buzz and Judi Shellabarger had the right idea when they escaped the brutal Memphis summer for a cool Alaskan cruise in July. Come August they were probably wishing they’d stayed there!
Robbie Huserik of Oliver, and his pals, James Kmet and Atticus McRae of Oliver, wait for a bite of cake at Robbie’s 2nd birthday party. Virginia Grace Winter, also of Oliver, can’t be bothered with cake when there’s fun to be had on the water slide! Robbie is the son of Monika and Rob Huserik.
Wayne and Donna Sue Shannon of new Elzey, along with their daughter and son and their families, all took a trip to Maui recently. Donna Sue said everyone had a great time visiting the island state but that all the kids also love visiting Mama Sue and Grampa Wayne’s wonderful neighborhood!
Watch out Michael Phelps! Mike Parnell of Young Avenue won three bronze metals at the State Senior Olympics in Nashville. Previously he won two gold and two bronze at the local level in the Memphis Senior Olympics. He is still deciding if he is going to go to the National Senior Olympics, but if he does we’ll be rooting him on all the way!
Oliver resident Debbie Sowell walked into her house on August 7 to find dozens of her friends waiting to wish her a happy 40th birthday! Her husband, Chris McHaney, and mom, Evelyn resident Lynda Sowell, along with several neighbors, pulled off the surprise party complete with food, drink, and a birthday cake shaped like a pair of roller skates!
The Cooper-Young Business Association hosted their third quarterly membership meeting recently at Au Fond Farmtable on July 29. Everyone enjoyed an introduction to eight different cheeses found locally and around the world. The host for the evening was Au Fond’s manager and Nelson resident Chey Fulgham, who enlightened everyone on the cheeses.
Baby Judson Weaver, one of the newest residents of Cooper-Young, was the guest of honor at a baby shower hosted by Buzz and Judi Shellabarger of Nelson. Pictured are Avery and Jennifer Word of Nelson, Carmen and Judson Weaver of South Rembert, Edmund Mackey of Walker holding Paxton Word, and proud papa Joey Weaver.
Walker residents Laura and Curry Weber didn’t let a little oil spill get them down! The couple was married on June 19 in Gulf Shores, Alabama, and then honeymooned in St. Augustine, Florida. Congratulations to the happy pair!
