Another successful and informative meeting with the support of all members under the leadership of Donna Earhart and Ingeborg McGlynn who brought Jennie Strobel of Sloat Gardens to our October program.
We enjoyed learning about the vast variety of orchids and how to take care of them. Special thanks to Louise Bacigalupi, Maria-Elena Hanley, Saundra McCormick, Anna Bolecheski for bringing refreshments, and Nancy Hagosian for table decorations.

Moving forward to the most exciting time of our club activities, join us on November 14th to shop for books for yourself and for book lover friends at 20% discount offered by Bookshop West Portal. We will be collecting checks for annual food drive. Remembering the less fortunate during holidays.

Eva Monroe and Dottie McHugh and their supportive friends are putting a magical holiday party together, make sure to reserve your seats as we have a limited spaces.

Catherine Lee is retiring, after almost 30 years of helping us quietly with our events in the kitchen. We like to thank her in a small way with a go away gift.

This year, America celebrates its National Parks Centennial – what perfect timing to transform our own Maybeck designed Arts and Crafts clubhouse into a replica of The Awahnee in Yosemite or The Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone for the December Holidays!
Come for the experience, stay for the cocktails, dinner and dancing in the splendor of Forest Hill’s own Park Lodge.
