Raise the Rutherford!

Rutherford B. Hayes Month
The Rutherford B. Hayes Birthday Celebration

Today is Rutherford B. Hayes’ birthday. But last night I hosted the 2nd Annual Rutherford B. Hayes Birthday Celebration. Well over twenty people attended. Hopefully a good time was had by all. I know I had a few too many beers and throw in a combination Un-Lucy Vodka Lemonade and Un-Lucy Lemonade Rum Slush and it made for a very sluggish morning. And the last guests didn’t leave until nearly 2:00 AM!

Birthday Cake!
Some of the festivities . . .
‘Pin the Beard on Rutherford’
Playing ‘Hayes on Horseback’ (The point was to ride the 'horse' and then shot at target with the play dart gun scoring the most points while dressed in Hayes Civil War gear.)
Kim got the Spiegel Grove plate for winning ‘Hayes on Horseback’
Raise the Rutherford! is a continuing, slightly humorous series to raise awareness of Rutherford B. Hayes and erect a statue of him in Cincinnati.
