Merry Acres Inn and Event Center in Albany, GA was the site of the 2011 Jubilee. Albany is in the center of Southwest Georgia, a region closely tied to the antebellum age of the Old South. Being the home of Ray Charles, this was a weekend to “Keep Georgia On Our Minds”.
Friday began with an afternoon Ice Cream Social out by the pool, followed by the Opening Ceremonies which featured a “A tribute to Georgia Women Throughout History”. The party got underway Friday night with a “Moonlight and Magnolias” Dinner & Entertainment by “Relapse”, a fabulous local 9‐piece party band.
Saturday began with the traditional Pajama Breakfast, then the ladies donned their costumes for an afternoon stroll along the Riverfront Park which we called "Somewhere In Time". The Paparazzi was there and we made the front page of the local Sunday newspaper in full color. On Saturday evening we laughed at the antics of a Lucy & Ricky Tribute Show.
Next year we are going on a cruise and some of us are already packing!
