Two ACBS Members Receive Nautical Honor
May 2009 — Earlier this month CBC members Howard & Cheryl Johnson celebrated their six-month anniversary. Since this site wasn't available at the time to cover the event, we want to share with you some memories from that special occasion...
[Upper Marlboro, MD. November 15, 2008] — Cheryl Ann Beveridge wedded member Howard Johnson at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Croom, MD with 131 friends and relatives in attendance. Chuck Warner, Best Man and fellow-CBC member, decided that this paddle tunnel was in order and organized other members to bring paddles and participate. It was a special tribute to commemorate Howard’s lifetime of antique boating and Cheryl’s love of boating and our annual boat festival. The happy couple was delighted by this honor.
Cheryl was lovely in Howard’s mother’s 1939 wedding gown, which she wore without alteration. During the ceremony CBC member, Danny Wilson, sang The Lord’s Prayer and Cheryl’s daughter, Megan, sang Amazing Grace.
A procession of six antique cars escorted the happy couple back to their home at Oldtimeworld Farm to enjoy a pot-luck feast, dancing to live music, karaoke singing and the traditional toasts and wedding celebrations. And of course no visit to this farm is complete without a tour of Howard's current restoration efforts on antique cars and boats.
The weather included rain and sunshine and ended with twin rainbows. Howard and Cheryl said it was the "experience of a lifetime" and extend their thanks to all who contributed to and participated in this special event.
