Holiday Party!

We had a great time at the 2022 Holiday Party.  A last minute scramble by Nancy Sinnwell and Ray Missman (the original restaurant closed!) worked out fine.  We had delicious food, games and an introduction to our new Board among other things. Ray Missman was honored for his two years service as our club's President.  Roz Worrall was thanked for her 5 years of dedication to the Shutterbugs photography group. It was a lively (loud) gathering with plenty of food and friendship.  THANK YOU  to everyone who helped make this a special event.

       


Crafters Raise Funds for Our Club

Julia Smith is our Craft Chairperson and she sold approximately $600 in crafts at our holiday party and at a craft faire the day before. The Crafts Committee is the major fund raiser for our club (other than dues) and their work allows us to offset some of the expenses we have when hosting visitors from other countries.  Thanks so much to Julia and all the members who create and sell crafts for us.  


November's Membership Meeting

We had a great meeting in November.  It started with a calming but energizing Qi Gong lesson by Diana Loo.  Sandra Carter then spoke about the Nicaraguan village "San Juan de Oriente".  It is a Sister City to Sacramento and she shared with us how the Sister Cities are chosen.  Their goals are very similar to ours. She also showed some of the beautiful pottery that is hand made in the village. The proceeds from the sales go 100% back to help with college scholarships, elementary school facilities and a local women's health clinic. To learn more and find out where their next pottery sales are go to www.friendsofsanjuan.org
