A rowdy roundup was staged at La Fontaine Bleu as 1,050 cowgirls and cowpokes packed the place for Harbor Hospital's "Harbor Daze" celebration. Since the theme for this year's jamboree was "Our Country Style," many folks donned western duds in red, white and blue -- with stars and stripes a major motif. As a band played country-western tunes, hardy two-steppers snaked around other guests mingling on the dance floor. Another line -- this one for the Tex-Mex buffet -- formed out the back of the ballroom to a tent where vittles like pit beef and barbecue were being served.
