Rhonda Jo and Jimmy Dan Conner held their annual Derby kick-off party on the evening of April 30 at their home on Old Federal Road. The Kentucky-themed party featured Kentucky ham, bibb salad, tenderloin with Henry Bainâ€™s sauce, bread pudding with bourbon sauce, and Derby pie. The Misty Mountain String Band played traditional bluegrass music. Special guests Matthew and Liezl Copham, owners of Wapuka Safaris, arrived from Maun, South Africa, just in time for the party.
