These pictures were taken during the Mountain Majesty Open House and Dedication on October 25, 1997. This was a very special day for me and for Mountain Majesty. Thank you to the 75 family and friends who made the trip and shared in this memorable occasion!

  13. Teri and Marquitta chat during the party.

  14. Tim and Father Jack enjoy the party.

  15. Tim, Lisa, Teri and I sit by the fireplace. Lisa came in from Seattle and Teri from Wisconsin. This reunion gave us a chance to remember our times together the summer before at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.

  16. Father Jack and Father Pat relax in the living room. A preview of Vatican III?

  17. The Paynes take a break in the kitchen. They catered the party and provided an extensive and delicious selection of food!

  20. I share with everyone about Mom and Dad.....THE BEST parents of all!

  21. I share the quality craftsmanship and some funny building stories with real estate agent and contractor Dan and Lisa. "Dan" is the answer to many questions, including, "Who stacked all the fireplace rock?" and "Who painted the ceiling?"

  22. I share the quality craftsmanship and dedication of foreman Pete. Pete is responsible for all of the wood trim including the tv stand, bench and cup holder, railing, beams, etc., etc.

  23. I thank Lisa for her friendship and hard work in building Mountain Majesty. Lisa, when are you coming back?......there's more staining to do!!
