Orchid Beach Club resident Heather Roberts celebrated her 50th birthday Thursday Aug 9., with a ‘40s supper club-themed surprise party at Crosley Mansion.
It was a scene out of golden-age Hollywood as a band played crooner-style tunes while guests sipped champagne and noshed on apps before dinner. The night was hosted by Heather’s father, Roy Palmer. Susan Palmer, Marilyn Paderewski and Beverly Underwood facilitated the ambiance.
