The Birch Aquarium Volunteer Party with 50s theme was graced by none other than Marilyn and Elvis. They arrived in a white corvette with red leather interior. Poodle skirts, saddle shoes, slicked back hair, pony-tails, ribbons, neck scarves, cat eye glasses, chunky plastic bead necklaces, aprons, candy cigarettes, rolled sleeve t-shirts, leather jackets, cardigans, bowling shirts and roller skates galore! I even had my first malt, which was delicious. I photographed in skates, which turned out fine. I'm pretty sure most people (including me!) were expecting a loss of skating control, but there was no falling on my part. I did enjoy the extra 3 inches the skates gave me - a greater range of photographic vantage points.
