Family and friends,
Thanks for coming to celebrate
with Marsh and Teressa. Please don’t share this note with them.
During tomorrow’s ceremony, I
will ask the “congregation” to support the two of them as they enter married
life. I’d love to hear a rousing “AYUH!” from y’all in response. Ayuh
is, shall we say, a regional colloquialism signifying assent. If you prefer
to say something like “we will,” that is fine too. And for those of you from
away who need help pronouncing ayuh, just talk to a Mainer (or to Nat Gardiner
or Ian Burnes).
Thanks. Please pass the word
tomorrow to wedding guests who are not at tonight’s dinner.
