On August 26, over 200 friends and family of CCI gathered at Miner’s Park in Virginia City to celebrate Shaun’s many years of service and dedication to the community, and his stepping back as CCI’s longtime Executive Director. Even the fickle weather cooperated as the wind decided to play elsewhere and the sun shone through the crowds!
There were full bellies thanks to the hardworking BBQ crew and all of the dishes lovingly prepared. As well, we had a great selection of drinks and desserts.
Multiple musicians kept the throng entertained. First it was renowned pianist Squeek Steele working her magic. Then it was Bob and June crooning so smoothly you would’ve thought you slipped into a dream. Finally, half of the quartet Drinking with Clowns kept us dancing with their Latin rhythms.
The highlight was a program put together by Shaun’s wife that featured many a surprise for Shaun including videos from his son Cody, his mother Jeanne, and others, as well as numerous folks who flew in and/or made a point to be there, including his oldest son Nevada. By the time the program ended, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
All in all, a magical evening made even more so by those who came!
