Mansfield 2015

March 2015 051The weather was great for the 37th annual Mansfield Bottle Show. The dealers and early admissions enjoyed a great (but late) meal on Friday night. A fatal crash on 71 South closed the freeway for 5 hours with our caterers caught in the mess. About 200 braved the delay and shared the company of friends.
