A Happy and Prosperous New Year to
First of all, I would like to thank the Burali-Forti/Martínez family for
their hospitality. We all had a wonderful time and enjoyed their beautiful
garden. Many thanks! The Christmas cocktail was definitely a team effort.
Patricia Parker-Weber, as always, organized a great event.
The botanas were delicious, John Florida tended bar, Nelly
Snyder and Lia Florida helped by selling bar tickets, and
Gerry Guerin coordinated the efficient group of volunteers who greeted us
with lovely smiles and signed up members new & old with all the patience in
the world. We were sorry to
see that of our 200 plus members, only 55 or so were able to attend.
However, we did sign up 5 new members. Welcome!
It was a pleasure for me to meet Lolita Shamblin in person.
I’m so glad you are back with us and we hope to see you often at our
events. Isabel Olsen, a long-time
Creative Arts member, expressed a wish for more daytime events, since she
can’t get out at night, and misses the C.A. meetings.
Other members who made an effort to be at the cocktail were Paco &
Consuelo Guinovart, friends and neighbors of Frank & Myrna Jennings.
They were both thrilled to meet up with Mará Vilar and to be able to
exchange a few words in Catalán and meet our sweet Marion Allan.
In conclusion, I am so pleased to know that everyone had a great time. Thank you all for your suggestions, and you can be sure
that each and every one will be taken into account.
are taking a break in January, but the board has been meeting to organize
something for February. We have
planned a Valentine's Day Mixer at the home of Gerry Guerin on Saturday,
February 17 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. There
will be a cash bar and members will be able to re-register at last year's
prices: $75 pesos for an individual membership, and $150 for a family
membership. Also, any
members who wish to renew their membership can do so at the Guild House library
with CACC members Pat Arenas, Alice Cornell, and Claude Manfre.
If you have any suggestions, please let us know, either by telephone, or by e-mail. My e-mail address is
again, Happy New Year, and we look forward to seeing you at our next event.
P.S. We want to apologize for the late newsletter but due to the holidays and all the changes in the clubs officers, there was some confusion and delay. We hope to have the February newsletter back on schedule.
Feliz y próspero año nuevo!

porque se encontraron con María Vilar y pudieron intercambiar algunas palabras

you are going to the Amigos de la Musica Program on Jan 28, you might be
interested in this:
Camille Saint-Saens was born in Paris in
1835, the son of a clerk in the French government service who died shortly after
his birth. He began learning the piano at two and a half and displayed
remarkable precocity, memorizing all the Beethoven piano sonatas by age 10.
Saint-Saens's melodies are always
beautiful, and uniquely French in flavor. Works such as the Third Symphony and
Carnival of the Animals contain some of the most famous melodies ever written .
Saint-Saens was one of the most
skilled orchestrators of the 19th century. He had an instinctive feel for
orchestral color, and his textures are always clear and sonorous.
The club seems to have gotten over the crisis of not having a president. Yolanda is doing a sensational job. And we seem to have a very active and enthusiastic board of Directors. I see lots of good things starting to happen. A list of the officers is on the main club page I didn't see any sense in redoing it here.
But we still need some volunteers to help design and deliver the newsletter. This will only take a few hours once a month. Also if you have some time and would like to help with one specific event (either organize it or help someone else) please call or email Yolanda and talk to her. We will find something for you to do. We need a few more warm bodies. The more people that work, the less work there is!
We now have an online Business Section. These local business men help support the Creative Arts with their advertisements. Please take the time to browse through them and patronize them if you can.
