You know spring has sprung because there is a party, party everywhere! Last week, Nancy Ingram Jordan celebrated the season at her new Marietta home with a garden party. Jordan invited a lovely group of ladies including family members, her mother’s supper club, professional colleagues, work colleagues from Gregory, Doyle, Calhoun & Rogers where she practices law in Marietta, yogini buddies and childhood and high school friends.

Jordan’s dear friend, Debbie Pelerose, provided fresh flower arrangements. Wonderful food catered by Chef Chad of West Cobb Diner was served on silver trays and white tablecloths to ladies donning their garden hats. (Attorney Lynn Hanna also wore gloves.) A few gentlemen in attendance such as Jordan’s father, Hon. Conley Ingram, even wore their hats.

The rain held off until eight minutes before party was officially over — even Mother Nature loves a good party. Among those growing their own fun were: Heather Ambrosi, Pat Chilton, Lillian Darden, Ann Dettmering, Nancy’s son Harrison Jordan who bartended, Laura Murphree, greeter Dan McCall, Debbie Pelerose, Judy Renault, Nancy Ryle, Mary Frances Williams, Meredith Williams, Diane Woods and Tony Whitlock who helped Nancy create her new home and garden.


Last week, the Walker Backers, Walker School Association and Patrons of the Arts of the Walker School hosted Groovin’ on the Green, a Chastain-style concert for parents, faculty and staff. The fete was held in the green at historic Oakhurst, home of Mary Anne and Ben Mathis. Douglas Cameron followed by the Mercury Orkestar provided an evening of musical entertainment to the crowd of over 250.

Among those attending were: Shannon and Ford Bohannon, Mary Anne and Dave Elliott, Kellie and Jim Clabby, Rebecca and Jim Condon, Kristie and Scott Cowan, Denise and Cliff Crider, Liz Bouis and Randy Fields, Joan and Mike Hayden, Julie and Russ Hedden, Sue and Bob Harrison, Rebecca and Trevor Jordan, Janet and Mark Knautz, Julianne and Byron Long, Kimberly and Ed Robertson, Donna and Scott Salyer, Kristin and Glenn Shaw, Christie and Scott Slay, Kathy and Dave Smith, Jennifer and Matthew Smith, Kitty Drew and Terry Strecker, Suz and Cliff Waddington, Melinda and Jeff Wood, and Terri and Jim Woods.
