Wedding Wednesday: TAMU RPTS Stories - RP Club Friends, 1980-81

I've been sharing a number of stories recently here in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the Recreation, Park, and Tourism Sciences (RPTS) Department at Texas A&M University.  This isn't an "RPTS story" per se, because it's not about events or activities that occurred in that department. 

Rather, the next few postings of "RPTS stories" will be about what happened afterwards - the lifelong friendships made and the fun get-togethers former members of the Recreation and Parks (RP) Club and I had over the following years.

Three weddings among five of my RP Club friends occurred between September 1980 and June 1981. Other RP Club friends (and myself) were bridesmaids, groomsmen, ushers, and members of the house parties.  Here are some pictures:

Below:  I didn't take too many pictures at the wedding of Cody Jetton '79 and Karen Bellinghausen '79 in San Antonio on November 8, 1980.  In this one, groomsman Dale Zuck '79 and usher Kent Keller '78 have finished decorating Cody's car.  Wilfred Korth '79 was also a groomsman.

Above:  House party member Marve Mayton '80 caught bride Barbara Dennis' bouquet.  Groom Wilfred Korth '79 threw the garter and his best man, Darel Ball '79, caught it.  Marve and Darel were already engaged.  At Wilfred Korth's wedding in San Antonio, Texas, on June 13, 1981.
