Children's Holiday Party Wrap Up meeting

What a fantastic group of women that organize this December event. We always meet after and discuss new ideas, ways to improve and just have fun. Despite the downturn in the economy, the event made approximately $5,000 profit for the AHS Museum bringing joy and laughter to 250 children, parents, grandparents and friends.

Pam den Draak served us a lovely Strawberry Spinach Salad with slivered almonds while co-chair Carolyn Wood was busy baking quiche. Tobe Daum and Betsy Davis helped serve the luncheon. The venue was the L Ron Hubbard home in Paradise Valley with beautiful views of the west face of Camelback Mountain beyond the pool. A version of this spinach salad is in Tastes & Treasures (page 151) with carmelized pecans and poppy seeds.
