Sequoia Winter Party and Volunteer Appreciation
Sequoia members and volunteers gathered at the home of Sequoia President Barbara Mason on January 25th to celebrate a successful 10th Anniversary Year. The guests of honor at the party were our dedicated volunteers, without whose help Sequoia would not have been able to stay in business for a decade.
Members and volunteers celebrated with lasagna and salad with French bread. Wine was donated by Gayle Pedemonte and Barbara Mason. Appetizers, including a “killer” artichoke dip were donated by Gayle Pedemonte. A white elephant gift exchange was also enjoyed by all. Some gifts were very nice and some were very white “elephant-ish”.
Our 2017 volunteers include:
Heather Rubicam, Catering for our monthly First Tuesday Art Receptions
Jan Simmons, Community Board Members, Plein Air Committee Member
Carol Loughner, Community Board Members, Plein Air Committee Member
Kay Warden, Gallery Staffer
Doug Petite, Gallery Staffer, Exhibitions, and Jack of All Trades
Mia Hocking, Plein Air Committee Chair
Marlene Nash, Food Server on First Tuesday
Hugh Ferguson, Wine Server on First Tuesday
Catherine Volle, Wine Server on First Tuesday
And all the Sequoia members who volunteer their time in many ways to help run our 501 c3 art non-profit, making the whole larger than the sum of the parts!
Many thanks to everyone for making it a successful 10 year anniversary!
