Guess who came to dinner … in little old Vass, no less !
Yup…it’s none other than JIMMY CARTER.
Jimmy Carter, who served our country as President from 1977 to 1981, was in Pinehurst for the wedding of his great-nephew, Jason Stapleton.
I understand that he arrived Friday night in time to attend the rehearsal dinner. The actual wedding was the next day and it was after that when the party made it’s way to the reception held at the Woodlake Country Club, a golfing community in my little town of Vass.
You pass right by my house (circa 1902) to get there …
… and you arrive at the historic Oates House (circa 1792) in Woodlake for the reception.
Now which one would you choose???
Jimmy Carter may be many things to many people but he’s definitely not a snob … his advocacy for human rights and his myriad of projects aimed to make life easier for the underdog has proved that.
Soooo… I like to think that, if he’d been given his “druthers”, he would at least have stopped for tea ! But I guess those darn Special Agents of the Secret Service had other ideas.
Maybe next time !
