Many thanks to Mr. Earl Golden for giving his mother, Dr. Olivia S. Golden Swanson such a unique surprise “Milestone Birthday Party” recently.
During the celebratory week, the first activity was held at the Bohemian Hotel on Bay St. The guests were given the opportunity to select from the delectable menu items of their choice. Mr. Lonnie Alston, (Olivia’s nephew) was the Master of Ceremony of the affair. Mrs. Kim Polote, with her melodious voice, rendered selections and was accompanied by a guitarist. They were a great hit. Toasts were given and then dessert was served. Several family members, close long time friends and business associates were in attendance. The atmosphere was warm and inviting.
The last activity of the celebration was held at the Mansion on Forsyth Park with an intimate gathering of guest including the organizers and out of town guests. A decadent selection of courses were served. The waiter brought in the vintage bottle of 1998 Taittinger (an art design collector’s item) for the champagne toast to cap off the evening.
The organizers included Pamela Joyeux, Lonnie Alston, Altheria Maynard, and Carmelita Maynard. Out of town guests included Olivia’s No. 2 sons, Walter Ricardo Davidson and Kenneth Wallace, both of New York. Olivia is truly blessed to have such a wonderful son, other family members and friends
