Smoke Rise & Kinnelon Resident, JoAnn Brett contacted me about the upcoming Royal Wedding Event at the Smoke Rise Inn. I was so intrigued with it that I asked her to tell me more about how the idea came about. Here is what she says:
A few months ago, I received a flyer from the Governor Morris Inn promoting a big fundraiser using the Royal Wedding theme. The idea “tickled” me and I thought that we could probably have some fun with the idea as well. I also felt that it might be a good way to promote the new lunch service at the Inn. Inn Governor, Bob Morrisroe and Smoke Rise Inn Manager, Randy Polo agreed.
I mentioned it to Lola Burling and we were off and running. The enthusiasm has been great. A small planning committee consisting of me, Lola Burling, Jane Johnsen, Alexis Joseph and Vera Mordhorst was formed. We have wonderful supporters like Carol Nash. Ideas and donations have been generous. “Wedding cake”, scones, flowers, decorations, 55” TV, favors etc. are all being donated by residents to support the event.

The Inn will be serving High Tea and a buffet with aptly named dishes such as Majestic salad & Buckingham soup will be served. The Inn is donating a Champagne wedding toast.
We estimate that 35 or 40 people will attend the festivities and royal attire is welcomed but not mandatory. A few games are planned and a prize for the best representative attire will be given. It’s all about fun.

John & I have lived in Smoke Rise for thirty years. Testament to the fact that we love the community is that instead of moving when our children left home we bought a smaller home on Laurel Lane. Over the years, we have been members of the Tennis club, Community Church, St.Hubert’s Chapel committee & the Smoke Rise Sailing Club. John recently finished a stint on the Smoke Rise Board of Governors.
Thank you, JoAnn!
