1/26 was Fabulous – Some Pics

Happy New Year dear Eldorado Savorians! Our first potluck/BYOB of the decade was awesome.  Once again, Elaine and Art Kaiser kindly opened up their beautiful home. The place was packed and it was thrilling to meet so many new neighbors! Thanks to everyone who attended, bringing amazing food, drink and camaraderie. Thanks to Robert Miller for his very cool recycled assemblages and to Cowboy Scott Connors for his fun fun music.

Here are some pics from the party by Marilyn Jennings, Kay Castelle and myself.

Our artist Robert Miller shared his recycled assemblages:

Elaine and Art recommended Cowboy Scott Connors for our background music and he said yes! I heard him at the Chili Line in Lamy and liked him very much. He was great and I had a blast joining him on a few tunes. Here’s a clip from youtube:

Thanks to all who expressed concern over my husband Thom’s dehydration event at the party. He bounced back quickly and we’re grateful he didn’t need a trip to the ER. You were all lovely! Drink water everybody!

A Few Pics from 11/17 at Cynthia & Linda’s

Honestly, these parties are awesome. Thanks so much to Kay Castelle for the photos, to Cynthia Bargman and Linda Armantrout for hosting us in their stunning home, to Linda for sharing her gorgeous art, and to all of you who attended with your delicious food and drink! It was a joy to see all the regulars and to meet the many newcomers. Jim and I had a total blast playing music for you. Are you interested in hosting? Contact Hope! Remember, we can limit the number of RSVPs to your comfort level. This is about community!

Floyd, Cynthia & Linda

Greetings, Savor Eldoradoans! We are filled up for this Sunday’s potluck. The RSVP form is closed.

This year has been a blast. Thank you all for your attendance and support. Thanks to Destiny Allison’s La Tienda newsletter, Cynthia Bargman and Linda Armantrout attended our September party at Max Todd and Ron Paredes’ home. They have been thrilled to move to the Eldorado Community and welcome you to their home and studio.

Linda has been painting professionally since 1988. Her work will be on display and available for sale. Cynthia has been making gold leafed and contemporary frames for the paintings almost that long. Together they helped start the East Boulder County Studio Tour in Colorado. People have been gathering for art and music events in their homes for decades. They look forward to continuing the fun with you in their Eldorado home.

Please come, meet your neighbors, and enjoy our home. During Savor Eldorado, select artwork will be discounted up to 50%.”

See some of Linda’s work below, and check out her website.

As usual, this party will be a potluck/BYOB and the raffle will be for $100, with extra proceeds going to run the organization and hopefully donations to local organizations! (We thought we’d get to the donations sooner but then needed to pay for hosting of the website. It will happen!)

Cynthia and Linda have requested that I play music with Jim Harlan for this event and we plan to be there. See a recent clip of our music here.
