I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving with family and friends. Holiday decorations have been up for several weeks in our neighborhood. I enjoy the festive lights and colors of the holidays.
We were a small but fun group for Installation Night at The Blue Pheasant in Cupertino. Thank you, Juan Carlos, for my thank you certificate for being on the board. We went round the room for self-introductions and I learned new things about old friends and enjoyed hearing from new members. Thank you to Tom Ellington for performing installation duties for the Chapter and Auxiliary. The colored beads were fabulous and festive.
Thank you everyone for buying raffle tickets. The Auxiliary raised $160 for LEAF scholarships. The big winners were:
- Juan Pimentel from Golden State Tree Care won the basket by Juan Carlos Esparza
- Jeff Henninger from Delta Bluegrass won the annual nutcracker prize
